Summer Walker Addresses Grammys Snub: ‘The Math Is Literally Not Mathing’

Summer Walker‘s name was noticeably absent when this year’s crop of Grammy nominations were announced on Tuesday (November 15), and the R&B star took to social media to talk about it.

In a pair of since-expired Instagram stories, the “Girls Need Love” singer wrote, “Thanks for all the overflowing love in my dms … and as for grammy for the second time the math is literally not math… I was off posting some numbers but that’s ok, at least the streets are ok with me. You guys always pack every show and support every time I drop, so thank you for the love I receive” with a few white heart emojis.

While Walker may have been disappointed with his second album from 2021 Still over it didn’t deserve a nod from the Recording Academy, she actually earned her first Grammy nomination this year for contributing to Kendrick Lamar’s Sir. Morality and the great steppes, which is ready for the album of the year. (The singer co-wrote and provided guest vocals on the album “Purple Hearts” with Ghostface Killah.)

Meanwhile, the R&B fields at the 2023 ceremony were crowded with the likes of Beyoncé RenaissanceMary J. Blige’s Good morning beautifulPJ Morton’s See the sun and other work by Muni Long, Lucky Daye, Jazmine Sullivan and Robert Glasper.

In the past few months alone, Walker has released new collaborations with The Weeknd (“Best friend [Remix]“), Ciara (“Better Thangs“) and Ari Lennox (“Queen Space“).

The 2023 Grammys will be held on Sunday, February. 5 at Los Angeles’ Arena. See the full list of nominees here.
