Justin Bieber is not ok with categorizing the album ‘Changes’ to pop.
The ‘Holy’ hitmaker, Justin Bieber is not ok with the Grammy’s decision to call his album ‘Changes’ Pop. The 26-year-old singer has written a statement on Instagram saying that it feels weird to put ‘Changes’ to the pop category.
He said: “I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry.
“I am very meticulous and intentional about my music. With that being said I set out to make an R&B album.
“Changes was and is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album which is very strange to me.
“I grew up admiring R&B music and wished to make a project that would embody that sound.
“For this to not be in that category feels weird considering from the chords to the melodies to the vocal style all the way down to the hip hop drums that were chosen it it undeniably, unmistakably an R&B Album!
“To be clear I absolutely love Pop music it just wasn’t what I set out to make this time around.
“My gratitude for feeling respected for my work remains and I am honored to be nominated either way.”
According to the singer, his intention is not to be ungrateful. “Please don’t mistake this as me being ungrateful, these are just my thoughts take em or leave em. Thank you to the people who fought for me to even have any noms,” the Canadian singer wrote.
