Bieber picked four nominations this year for Best Pop Album, Best Pop solo performance, Best Country duo performance, and Best Pop group performance.
But, Bieber expressed dissatisfaction at the nomination category, stating that his album was set out to be R&B, not Pop.
On his Instagram page, Bieber wrote:
“To the Grammys, 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 is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album which is very strange to me.”
Bieber, however, expressed gratitude to the Grammys organizers for nominations and for respecting his music.
His post added: “Please don’t mistake this as me being ungrateful, these are just my thoughts take them or leave them.”
