The real reason Cardi B isn't nominated for the Grammys 2021

Isn't it surprising that Cardi B didn't receive any nominations for the 2021 Grammy Awards? After all the prizes she won with her song WAP this year, we were hoping that she would at least compete in one of the categories. There seems to be a reason for this. Keep reading to find out.

  • The most important awards in the music industry will celebrate their 63rd edition in 2021 and these days the list of nominees was revealed.
  • Many big absences like Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez left fans a bit confused. 
  • These awards are chosen exclusively by the members of the Recording Academy so the public does not play a great role in the winners of the 83 categories. 

The Awards

Grammy Awards have often been mired in controversy over nominees and winners.

As in any institutional award, the transparency of the choice of winners is always in question.

On January 31, 2021, we will be able to see these awards live on CBS with the presence of Trevor Noah as the host of the ceremony.

The Grammy Awards have 83 categories in which all musical genres are contemplated.

The gramophone will be delivered to those artists who have submitted their songs until August 31 of the current year to be considered eligible.

The reason

One of the surprising absences this year is Cardi B with her song WAP.

It has been said that the reason the song did not fall into any category is that it was released after the deadline.

However, this is not true since WAP premiered on August 7th.

It seems that the song was not submitted to be considered in Gammy's 2021 by the artist's label Atlantic Records.

The good news is that it will be nominated for the following year since the 27-year-old rapper wants to wait for the release of her new studio album that will be at some point in 2021.

Some have said that anyway WAP was not going to get any nominations.

I really don't think so, though!

 This collaboration song with Megan Thee Stallion earned her a People's Choice Award and an American Award and 5 nominations this year.

Let's see what happens in 2022.
