Cash Money Mistake May Have Cost Drake's 'Hotline Bling' Grammy Nomination

By HHL Editors

Drake's smash hit 'Hotline Bling' was not among the song titles read yesterday morning when the  Grammy nominations were announced.

Many fans assumed that was because the track didn't get in before the September 30th, 2015 deadline. But, in fact, the single was released in July -- it just didn't become a massive hit until the video dropped in October.

So what's the problem? According to Hits Daily Double, 'Hotline Bling' wasn't submitted because of a clerical error by Cash Money.

They add that the track would have been a contender in multiple categories, including Record Of The Year.

As it stands, Drake has five 2016 Grammy nominations. But none come in the big three categories of Song of The Year, Album of The Year and Record Of The Year.

For all of his success, Drake only has won one Grammy: Best Rap Album for 2013's Take Care.

He may have his label's increasingly notorious ineptitude to thank if he still has only one after February 15th.
