The 'Advice' singer is not happy.
Kehlani has spoken out after Bryson Tiller’s debut album ‘TRAPSOUL’ failed to receive multiple Grammy award nominations.
The R&B starlet responded to a comment made by Canadian producer Boi-1da on Twitter, who said the snub made him ‘a little sick to [his] stomach.'
Kehlani repsonded in agreement, stating that the record deserved more ‘multiple multiple’ Grammy’s.
TrapSoul deserves multiple multiple Grammys. https://t.co/qWruyLGUGD— kehlani (@Kehlani) December 6, 2016
Tiller’s album failed to earn recognition from the Grammy panel, although he did gain a Best R&B Song nomination for his hit single 'Exchange'.
Despite the snub, the Kentucky-born artist remained grateful and took to Twitter to thank his hometown, his fans and the Academy.

Some fans, however, were in total agreement with Kehlani and Boi-1da:
