Timberlake says Frank Ocean should have won the Grammys
Singer Justin Timberlake thinks Frank Ocean should have won the best album of the year Grammy award. At this years Grammys, Adele won biggest award of the night for her album, '25', beating out Beyonce, Timberlake, Drake and Sturgill Simpson. The 36-year-old singer, however, feels Ocean's second studio album 'Blonde' deserved the trophy.
"While I'm at it... Frank Ocean had the REAL Album Of The Year with BLONDE.#NotFakeNews "That Calvin Harris/Frank Ocean/Migos tho...," Timberlake tweeted. Ocean had opted out of submitting his album, for Grammy consideration because of a lack of representation.
"That institution certainly has nostalgic importance. It just doesn't seem to be representing very well for people who come from where I come from, and hold down what I hold down," Ocean said. The singer, 29, had noted that not many black musicians have won album of the year, which he was also nominated for in 2013.
