At the Grammy Awards 2018, Bruno Mars beat the likes of Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar for the most prestigious category category: the Album of the Year. And while many people are upset that hip hip got snubbed yet again, most are protesting because Jay-Z, who had bagged 8 nominations, did not go home with any trophy.
This is not first of such protests. Last year, many people were upset after Adele beat Beyonce for same category and Rihanna’s album, ANTI, got snubbed.
“Jay z deserved to go home with 8 Grammys. I’m sick to my stomach,” said one upset fan, @lique_44, and another @MzKane0107, tweeted, “Wow #JayZ did not win not one #Grammy tonight. When we starting the Boycott?”
Whatever be the case, Jay-Z, a 21-time Grammy Award winner, is a legend in his own rights. Plus, he was honoured with the 2018 GRAMMY Salute To Industry Icons Award at the Pre-GRAMMY Gala presented by the Recording Academy.
See the reactions from upset fans:

Nominating Kendrick Lamar, Lorde, and Jay-Z for Album of the Year but then giving it to Bruno Mars is why we can’t take you seriously, Grammy.

Bruno Mars beating out Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar in all those categories is complete B.S and robbery! What’s wrong with the Grammy’s? That's what you do when you want to reward bubble gum music instead of music with a message.
