The Weeknd has had an incredible year with his album After Hours receiving great critical success and hit single Blinding Lights being the biggest selling single of the year so far.

"Blinding Lights" has spent a significant amount of time (40 weeks to be exact) in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

However, it wasn't enough for him to get a nomination at the Grammys. The Earned It singer took to Twitter to address the matter.

The Weeknd tweeted: "The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…".

Another fan chimed in writing "Man oh man !!!! This guy did not receive even a single nomination in #GRAMMY but his song stayed No.1 on the charts more than any other song. TOTAL HYPOCRISY ".
