J Balvin calls the Grammys

J Balvin is not happy with the Latin Grammys.

Via a Twitter post, the 36-year-old shared, “The Grammys don’t like us, but they need us. That’s my opinion and nothing against other genres because they deserve all the respect. But the trick is already boring. We give them grades but they don’t respect us PS I’m nominated so don’t come and tell me I’m hurt.

It’s not entirely clear why the singer feels this and he hasn’t developed his point of view yet, but it’s obvious Balvin doesn’t feel respected.

He then wrote [translated]: “Those who have power in the genre, NONE SHOULD LEAVE !! I mean everyone because we are all a movement.

It is assumed that by “all of us” Balvin is referring to other Latinx artists.
