It seems that The Weeknd’s heart that has gone away will not return.
The fact that he was not nominated for The Weeknd and his fourth studio album [After Hours] is considered the biggest mistake of the 63rd Grammy Awards, which recorded the lowest viewership ever. Since then, The Weeknd has said that he will not register his future releases as a Grammy Award nomination.
Amid the controversy over the transparency of the Grammy Awards, the awards expressed their willingness to change the voting method on the 30th. After removing the secret nomination committee, which was the center of the controversy, the American Recording Academy announced that it would adopt a method of nominating candidates with the vote of more than 10,000 members.
The Grammy Awards’ willingness to change is eliciting a favorable response, but it seems that it has failed as much as it turns the mind of The Weeknd in the end. After the change in the way the Grammy Awards nominated was announced, The Weeknd told The New York Times that he would still not be enrolled.
Meanwhile, The Weeknd rose to No. 1 with a remix of “Save Your Tears” on the updated Billboard Hot 100 chart today, and set a record for No. 1 on single charts in 2019, 2020 and 2021 with [After Hours].
