Justin Bieber Is 'Flattered,' But Says His Grammy Nominations Are 'Very Strange'

Justin Bieber is reacting to his 2021 Grammy Awards nominations!

The 26-year-old was nominated for multiple awards, including Best Pop Solo Performance for “Yummy,” Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Intentions” with Quavo, Best Pop Vocal Album for Changes and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “10,000 Hours” with Dan + Shay.

Though he’s thankful for all the nominations, he doesn’t like that his nominations are in the Pop categories, as his album Changes was an R&B album.

“Please don’t mistake this as me being ungrateful, these are just my thoughts take em or leave em. Thank you to the people who fought for me to even have any noms,” he captioned a note on Instagram.

“To the Grammys I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry. I am very meticulous and intentional about my music. With that being said I set out to make an R&B album. Changes was and is an R&B album,” Justin‘s note says.

“It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album which is very strange to me. I grew up admiring R&B music and wished to make a project that would embody that sound,” he continued. “For this not to be put into that category feels weird considering from the chords to the melodies to the vocal style all the way down to the hip hop drums that were chosen it is undeniably, unmistakably an R&B Album! To be clear I absolutely love Pop music it just wasn’t what I set out to make this time around. My gratitude for feeling respected for my work remains and I am honored to be nominated either way.”
