Frank Ocean Ineligible for 2017 Grammys

  /  10.18.2016

Don’t expect Frank Ocean to win any Grammys next year. According to new reports, Blonde and Endless were not submitted for consideration.

Both projects were released in August, long before the Sept. 30 cutoff date for eligibility. However, a representative for the Grammys told Billboard that they were not turned in for next year’s show.

Ocean’s reps have not addressed whether this was intentional or an oversight.

The Grammy nominations are set to be revealed Dec. 8.

This could be a major loss for Ocean, who took home two trophies in 2013. Nominated for five Grammys, the R&B crooner won Best Urban Contemporary Album for channel ORANGE and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for Kanye West and Jay Z’s “No Church in the Wild.”

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards are scheduled to air Feb. 12, 2017 on CBS.
