(AllHipHop Rumors) I mean look at Adele who took home all five awards that she was up for, and Chance The Rapper took home 3 awards including Best New Artist.
While it was certainly a great night for some, there were some other side-eye worthy moments. Beyonce failing to win Album Of The Year was a total shocker, but the greatest snub might have gone to Rihanna.
Sometimes it seems like Bad Gal RiRi doesn’t always get her recognition. Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ album was up for six nominations. Some even believe that ANTI is her best album and cohesive body of work.
Oftentimes as black artists get snubbed it makes you really question the voting members of the Recording Academy committee.
Unfortunately Rihanna left empty-handed. I kind of wanted BJ The Chicago Kid to take home something too!
I surely thought ‘ANTI’ would take home something especially with the album’s success. The album has certified 2x platinum by the RIAA, is in it’s 54th week on the charts, and it peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 twice and spent 33 weeks in the top 10. “Work” made you dance, “Needed Me” made the women savage, and even “Love On The Brain” is at the No. 14 spot.
Perhaps Ri anticipated the BS and that’s the reason she brought her bedazzled flask to the awards show! What are your thoughts? Do you Think Rihanna was snubbed?
