Drizzy Drake's had one hell of a year, particularly due to the overwhelming success of "Hotline Bling." However, the hip hop heavyweight won't see any mention of the hit at the 2016 Grammy Awards because it wasn't nominated in any categories and that snub can be credited to his label, Cash Money Records.
Industry website Hits Daily Double reported that the song wasn't nominated for any categories because of a "clerical error on the part of label Cash Money." Somewhere in Toronto, the MC is probably fuming. While other snubs like Carly Rae Jepsen and Lana Del Rey (likely) didn't score any nods because of a lack of committee votes, it appears like Drizzy's mishap was due to straight up negligence. "That huge hit might well have been a multiple-category contender but for this goof," HHD reported.
However, Drake did receive some Grammy love in several other categories, including Best Rap Song ("Energy"), Best Rap Album (If You're Reading This It's Too Late), Best Rap Performance ("Back To Back") ("Truffle Butter alongside Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne) and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration ("Only" alongside Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown).
Still, we're sure that the "clerical error" probably has Drizzy kicking himself.
