Frank Ocean disqualified from 2017 Grammy race

Welp! This sounds like drama and politics rolled into one.

A source confirms to Billboard that Frank Ocean's 'Blond' and visual album 'Endless' were not submitted for consideration by his labels or management. Both albums, released via Apple Music exclusively, dropped well before the 2017 Grammy eligibility cutoff date of September 30th 2016. Damn...

It's very unusual for an artist and their team to "forget" about the Grammys. Take into account that Ocean released his visual album to finalise his deal with Def Jam, only to drop ‘Blond’ independently a few days later. I won't cry for it though. The album just isn't worthy of anyone's tears.

The Grammy Awards will air February 12th, 2017 on CBS.
