In the aftermath of the Grammy Awards over the weekend, discussions have been rife regarding the artists who were seemingly overlooked for their contributions. One notable example is SZA, widely considered a contender for the Album Of The Year award for her groundbreaking “SOS,” which ultimately went to Taylor Swift’s “Midnights.” This echoes a similar sentiment from the previous year when Harry Styles’ “Harry’s House” won over what many felt was a more deserving album, Beyonc√©’s “Renaissance.” While first-time winners like Miley Cyrus and Victoria Monet celebrated their victories, there was a prevalent sense of dissatisfaction among artists who have yet to secure a Grammy.

In the pop music sphere, Lana Del Rey took center stage in discussions. Despite critical acclaim for her album “did you know that there’s a tunnel under ocean blvd,” which featured the highly praised track “A&W,” she faced disappointment with four nominations, including one for her collaboration with Jon Baptiste, “Candy Necklace.” With no wins, Lana Del Rey now holds 11 Grammy nominations. Similarly, Nicki Minaj experienced a loss in both her nominations this year, adding up to a total of 12 nominations and no wins, despite a premature tweet from the Grammys account suggesting otherwise. Now, Snoop Dogg joins the chorus of criticism.

Snoop Dogg, a legendary figure in the rap scene, has surpassed both Nicki Minaj and Lana Del Rey in the category of nominations without a win. His Grammy journey began decades ago with a nomination for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group at the 36th Grammys for his collaboration with Dr. Dre on “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang.” In 2024, he stands at an astonishing 16 nominations without a single win. His most recent nomination is technically credited to Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly,” but his last nomination for his own music dates back two years earlier, with “Reincarnated” vying for Best Reggae Album. Snoop Dogg’s discontent with the Grammys’ recognition, or lack thereof, raises questions about the award system’s fairness and accuracy.
