Don’t call it a meltdown, but Trey Songz was definitely in his feelings over his 2015 Grammy snubs.
The 30-year-old, who was not nominated this year, took to Twitter last night and shared his distaste with fans, insisting he does music out of love, but also voiced his dismay over his successful album, Trigga, as well as chart topping singles “NaNa,” “Touchin’ Lovin’” and “What's Best For You” being overlooked.
“10 years I been able to feed my family and have the support of so many people, just for doing what I would do anyway for NOTHING… Music,” Songz wrote on Twitter. “So please, don’t take this next sentiment as salt, shade, envy, etc. The Grammys shortchange culture for popularity every year.”
He continued: “I don't rant, this isn't that. TRIGGA #1 album "NaNa" "Touchin Lovin" and "What's Best For You" all #1 on one chart or another. My fans give me the real reward no trophy ever could, LOVE. So everytime they give me nothing, I think of you. Thank you, I love you.”
Trey’s Trigga debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart selling 105k in its first week of release. The set was well received by critics!
Did Trey get snubbed?
