Justin Timberlake just wants "Nikes" to have won a GRAMMY.
The "Can't Stop the Feeling" singer took to Twitter on Thursday to shout out "Slide," Calvin Harris' collaboration with Frank Ocean and Migos, which he followed up with a little shade regarding this year's Best Album winner, Adele's 25.
"That Calvin Harris/Frank Ocean/Migos tho........ ???," the 36-year-old singer tweeted. "While I'm at it... Frank Ocean had the REAL Album Of The Year with BLONDE. #NotFakeNews."
That Calvin Harris/Frank Ocean/Migos tho........ 🔥🔥🔥
With the call out, Timberlake threw himself in Kanye West's camp, after the rapper revealed during an October concert that he'd boycott Music's Biggest Night if Blonde wasn't nominated. And when the show happened, West indeed skipped the festivities.
To be fair to the GRAMMYs, while Ocean's album IS incredible, the somewhat reclusive singer wasn't nominated in any categories at the show -- because he didn't submit them.
Then in February, Ocean dragged the GRAMMYs on his Tumblr page after show producer Ken Ehrlich and writer David Wild criticized his 2013 performance as "faulty."
"Winning a TV award doesn’t christen me successful. It took me some time to learn that," the 29-year-old singer wrote. "I bought all my masters back last year in the prime of my career, that’s successful. Blonde sold a million plus without a label, that’s successful. I am young, black, gifted and independent.. that’s my tribute."
"You know what’s really not 'great TV’ guys? 1989 getting album of the year over To Pimp A Butterfly," Ocean said, shading the 2016 Album of the Year honors going to Taylor Swift instead of Kendrick Lamar.
Meanwhile, even the GRAMMY winner herself, Adele, thought someone else belonged on stage that night.
"My view is, like, 'What the f**k does she have to do to win Album of the Year?'" the "Hello" singer told reporters, after dedicating her statue to Beyoncé, who she said should have won instead. "The GRAMMYs are very traditional, but I just thought this year would be the year that they would kind of go with the tide."
