Los Angeles, December 7 - Canadian singer Drake has decided to withdraw his two Grammy nominations. While the reason behind the withdrawal is not known yet, Variety reported the 35-year-old artist withdrew his two nominations after consultation with his management.
Drake got nominations for Grammys with four others for Best Rap Album, for 'Certified Lover Boy', and for Best Rap Performance, for his song 'Way 2 Sexy' (featuring Future and Young Thug).
Some have speculated that Drake's decision of withdrawing from nominations might have something to do with him being named in lawsuits surrounding the tragedy at the Astroworld festival in Houston last month, where 10 people died when the crowd rampaged during headliner Travis Scott's set, which featured a guest appearance from Drake.
Meanwhile, the withdrawal marks the latest chapter in the Canadian singer's long, contentious relationship with the awards show. In 2018, Drake refused to submit his album More Life for consideration out of frustration that his chart-dominating single Hotline Bling won for the best rap song in 2017, despite not featuring rap.
