The singer is upset that he didn’t get recognition for his smash single, “Post to Be” with Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko, which has sold more than a million downloads.
“‘Post to be’ is one of the greatest R&B collaborations ever. CB, Jhene, & myself been in the game 10+,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “Even though people act like its easy to make a hit (& it’s not). As an artist you look forward to being acknowledged by the game. The odds have always been against me. I constantly prove you wrong. I’ll consistently do great things & you will have to celebrate me.”
Omarion reveals he plans to use the snub as motivation for next year’s ceremony. “This isn’t a ‘im upset’ (post to be) rant,” he writes. “This is a- ok so that wasn’t good enough. I’ll be back. Have my Grammy’s ready. The game has long changed since I was introduced to it. They want to still treat me like I’m a new to this. My moment is coming trust. So when it’s all said & done. Remember. I prophesied it. It’s my destiny. I was destined. Chosen.”
The 58th Annual Grammy Awards will air live on CBS on Monday, February 15, at 8 p.m. from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
