Frank Ocean’s Blonde & Endless Ineligible For 2017 Grammys

Frank Ocean released two albums this year — Blonde and Endless — but neither of them are eligible to win a Grammy. Although both were released before the 9/30 cut-off date, Billboard reports that neither was submitted for consideration by the deadline. (Endless’ eligibility would’ve been questionable anyway.) It’s unclear if this was an intentional decision or an oversight. Either way, the Frank-less Grammy Awards will air 2/12 on CBS.

UPDATE: A source “close to the situation” now tells Billboard it was an intentional decision not to submit for consideration.
