In a recent interview with Billboard, Harvey Mason, the Grammy CEO, was questioned why Essence was not considered for a Record of the Year award.

The Grammy nominees are decided purely by the voting members of the Grammy committee, with no involvement from the review committee, for the first time in 27 years.

Wizkid was nominated for two Grammys, for Best Global Music Album and Best Global Music Performance, and the CEO was asked if he was confident in the voting committee’s ability to deliver without oversight.

According to the Grammy’s CEO,

I wasn’t frightened in the least. I felt like we’d accomplished a lot with our membership. We’ve done a lot of outreach to various communities that we believed were underrepresented among our voting membership…. As a result, I thought the timing was ideal for our membership to be able to vote directly on the nominees. That’s why, at the time, we felt comfortable abolishing the nominations review committees.

When asked why Wizkid’s Essence did not receive a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year, the Grammy chairman told Billboard:

It’s a fantastic album. He’s a fantastic artist. I’m not sure why it didn’t make the cut, but I truly like the record.
