Drake didn’t show up at the Grammys, but he won two awards, both for “Hotline Bling” in the rap category. Which doesn’t make a lot of sense, because it doesn’t contain any rap . . . just a healthy dose of Auto-Tune.
In a recent interview, he said he doesn’t even want the awards for that reason. Quote, “Even though ‘Hotline Bling’ is not a rap song, the only category they can manage to fit me in is a rap category.
“Maybe because I’ve rapped in the past . . . or because I’m black . . . I can’t figure out why. I won two awards, but I don’t even want them, because it just feels weird for some reason.” (Skip to the 23:40 mark)
