Cash Money Records Lets Drake Down


Cash Money Records Lets Drake Down

By  | 

According to Hits Daily Double, Cash Money Records forgot to submit Drake’s biggest hit of the year, “Hotline Bling,” to be considered for multiple categories.

HDD writes:

The surprise here is D’Angelo and the Vanguard’s “Really Love.” While the RCA soul artist earned great reviews for his 2015 album, Black Messiah, the set vanished quickly and D’Angelo didn’t resurface subsequently in the mainstream. “Really Love,” which is also nominated for Best R&B Song, is the only song in the category that wasn’t a commercial hit. But this category’s wild card does up the cool factor. Props to Grammy Whisperer Paul Grein for talking up Black Messiah in his mid-year assessment of the field.

It’s worth noting that Drake’s massive “Hotline Bling” was not submitted, due to a clerical error on the part of label Cash Money. That huge hit might well have been a multiple-category contender but for this goof.

    I know Drake is pissed but what can anyone even expect from Cash Money? They know nothing about professionalism.

    That’s so messed up. Drake really needs to get out of there. What is his waiting on?

    Birdman is really running that label into the ground.

    Terrible. Meanwhile Kendrick got 11 nominations. I know Drake is salty.

    Should have left Cash Money/Young Money a long time ago.

    Did it really need to be nominated for a Grammy though? I think Hotline Bling is one of his worst singles.

    He should be furious. But knowing Drake, he will pretend everything is good. Sometimes I think he’s afraid of Birdman and Slim.

    Sh-t it’s hard to feel sorry for Drake because he knows his a-s should have left a long damn time ago. If they will f-ck over Weezy, why would he think he’s special?
