With the 2016 Grammy nominations out, many are evaluating both the nominees and the so-called “snubs.”Omarion is one artist who isn’t too pleased with his name being absent from the list.
In a Twitter rant yesterday (Dec. 7), the singer and “Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood” star voiced his frustrations, claiming his 2015 hit featuring Jhene Aiko and Chris Brown, “Post To Be,” should have made the Grammy list.
One fan, @IAmBenAnderson, tweeted at the 31-year-old singer that he thought “Post To Be” should have been nominated, to which O agreed.
Some of Omarion’s Tweets read:
“The odds have always been against me. I constantly prove you wrong. I’ll consistently do great things & you will have to celebrate me.”
"Post to be" is one of the greatest R&B collaborations ever. CB, Jhene, & myself been in the game 10+.
“Even though people act like its easy to make a hit (& it's not). As an artist you look forward to being acknowledged by the game.”
“This isn't a "im upset" (post to be) rant. This is a- ok so that wasn't good enough. I'll be back. Have my Grammy's ready.”
“The game has long changed since I was introduced to it. They want to still treat me like I'm a new to this. My moment is coming trust.”
“So when it's all said & done. Remember. I prophesied it. It's my destiny. I was destined. Chosen.”
Twitter user @Baepernick replied to O’s last tweet with “Lmaoooo,” to which O replied, they “@Baepernick they laughed at Jesus.”
Omarion also reminded followers that the video has over 300 million views on YouTube.
While the song “Post To Be” was a fun bouncy song (and the phrase from the song “eat the booty like groceries” was a fun catchphrase over the summer), there were a lot of chart-toppers with hella views on the ‘Tube that weren’t nominated, neither. (Janet Jackson and Prince, to name a few).
Do you agree with O?
