According to multiple reports, the request to withdraw came from Drake’s management, which the Recording Academy obliged.

This means there will now be only four nominees in each of the affected categories.

For a while, Drake has been critical of the Grammys.

Last year, as part of the uproar over the award-nominations process and its use of so-called ‘nominating committees’. The Recording Academy’s system came under fire when Drake’s compatriot, The Weeknd, was snubbed for any nominations despite having some of the year’s most critically acclaimed and popular work.

Expressing his discontent with the award organizers, Drake wrote on his Instagram page last year, “I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artist that exist now and the ones that come after. It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just won’t change their ways.”
