Drake gets cut off during his speech

Drake made a surprise appearance at the 2019 Grammys to accept his best rap song trophy for 'God's Plan' and used his time on stage to throw shade at the Recording Academy's apparent lack of diversity, but was cut off mid-speech.

Big names in the industry such as Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, Jay Z and Kanye West were absent from the this year's ceremony, which honours the best of the music world. Critics have interpreted it as the artistes' tacit call out to the Grammy's as the organisers struggle to diversify the award.

Drake in his speech alluded to being misunderstood by people deciding the winners.

"For the first time in Grammy history where I actually am who I thought I was for a second, so I like that," he said.

"This is a business where sometimes it is up to a bunch of people that might not understand what a mixed race kid from Canada has to say "

The R&B star said that awards do not always match up with the talent of an artiste.
