Recording Academy Chair and Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. has responded to Justin Bieber’s statement that his album “Changes” had been listed in the wrong category for the 2021 Grammy Awards.
The “Yummy” singer wrote on Twitter Tuesday (November 24th) that he was unhappy with the Pop classification of his latest album because he “set out to make an R&B album.”
Mason told Pitchfork, “At some point, decisions have to be made as to how to compare different things, and it is a very tough process and one I don’t think we get right every time. We use our best efforts to get people where they wanna be and where they should be and try to evaluate them as best as we can. If he felt that was that type of a record, then, you know… I’ll just leave it at that.”
