Justin Bieber has complained about the Grammy nominations he received on Tuesday. The singer believes that his music has not been placed in the right category, he says on Instagram .

According to him, Bieber’s latest album, Changes , is an R&B album, but has been nominated as a pop album at the Grammys. The 26-year-old does not understand that. “If you look at the chords, melodies, vocals and even the hip-hop drums that have been chosen, it is undoubtedly an R&B album!”

Bieber emphasizes that one should not think that he is “ungrateful” and that he is still happy with his nominations, only the genre was very important to him. ” Changes was and is an R&B album. I grew up with that genre and it was very important for me to make an album out of it.”

Incidentally, it is not the case that the Canadian has an aversion to pop music. “To be clear: I absolutely love pop music, but I wasn’t going to make it this time.”

Bieber has been nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Duo / Group Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album. The Grammy Awards will take place on January 31st.
