Dua Lipa Didn't Submit 'Levitating' for Grammys Consideration

Dua Lipa‘s “Levitating” is one of the biggest songs of the past year, but don’t expect it to win any Grammys.

The 26-year-old Future Nostalgia superstar did not submit the song for Grammys eligibility, via Variety.

According to Variety, the song should be eligible for nomination at the upcoming ceremony because “the single had its major impact this year, and because it was a new remix, with DaBaby as an added featured artist.”

However, in the wake of DaBaby‘s rant that caused major industry backlash, it’s likely she opted not to submit for that reason.

Lipa presumably could only have submitted the DaBaby, and that would have been a lot to ask of voters, to pretend that the persona-non-grata rapper really wasn’t on it. Most likely Lipa was saving voters having to agonize over choosing between their love for her and their dread of giving the thumbs-up to a guy still considered toxic by much of the industry for his homophobic comments,” Variety noted.

That said, she does have one song on the ballot for record of the year: “Demeanor,” the Pop Smoke song she’s on as a featured artist.

Dua Lipa recently made her runway debut as well at a huge event.
