Drake’s “Hotline Bling” Won’t Be Up For Grammy Nomination Because Label Forgot To Submit It
According to multiple reports, Drake‘s critically acclaimed track, “Hotline Bling,” will not be in consideration at the 2016 Grammys for ‘Record of The Year.’ Why you ask? Apparently, there was a “clerical error” on Drake’s label, Cash Money Records, and thus, the track will not be in the running.
Of course, this is all speculation at this point, but if you ask me, this might be one of the best PR moves Drake (or anyone for that matter) has made. Think about it. If in fact “Hotline Bling” was not submitted for nomination, whomever wins Record of The Year at this year’s Grammys will certainly take home a nice award, but everyone will be talking about how “Hotline Bling” should’ve been in consideration, or would it have won if it was in contention? With all this commotion, the track will only get more and more traction and maybe even enough to bump it up to #1 on Billboard’s Top 100 Chart, which Drake has come so close to far too many times.
In any case, well played Drake, well played.
