The Weeknd Gets 0 Nominations at Grammy Awards 2021 Despite Breaking Chart Records

The Weeknd is curiously missing from the 2021 Grammy Awards nominations list.

Despite being a favorite to win among prediction lists, the 30-year-old After Hours singer received zero nominations at the annual music awards ceremony – which is especially strange, considering his chart-breaking year.

His single “Blinding Lights” from After Hours became a global smash hit, and rose to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It spent 40 weeks in the Top 10, breaking a tie with Post Malone‘s “Circles” for the most weeks logged in the region in the chart’s 62-year history.

After Hours, which was released back in March, also featured singles “Heartless,” “In Your Eyes” and “Save Your Tears.” The album also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It even broke the record for the most global pre-adds for an album in Apple Music history.

He wasn’t always snubbed: he previously won in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category for Beauty Behind the Madness in 2016, as well as 2018 with Starboy.
