One of the prominent female singers in R&B music, Jhené Aiko received nominations for the Grammys for Album of the Year, Best Progressive R&B Album, and Best R&B Performances and shared her happiness with her followers by penning down a meaningful note on her Instagram account.
Nominations have been determined for the 63rd annual Grammy Awards to be held in January. However, while names like Justin Bieber, The Weeknd were not pleased with the result, Jhené Aiko expressed her satisfaction but also revealed what is more important for her in making music.
On Friday, Jhené Aiko began her note by stating that she could only write now because they lost Uncle Cappy due to COVID-19 on the day her Grammy nominations were announced. Expressing that she will never forget this bittersweet moment, she summarized her feelings in three words and expressed that she felt humbled, honored, and grateful.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Jhené Aiko began her music career by singing vocals for the R&B group B2K and has since become one of the prominent female singers in R&B music. For this reason, as an artist who always puts everything forward for success, revealed that producing a new album or any piece of art is a very tiring process both mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Moreover, she pointed out that when you are rewarded and recognized for your work, it gets fulfilling and it means a lot. However, according to Aiko what is more important is to meet and hear the stories of people who feel connected with their art and has helped them in any capacity.
Here’s the caption:
“Humbled. honored. grateful 💙 the same hour these nominations were announced, I got a call that my Uncle Cappy passed away from Covid 😔
A bittersweet moment I will never forget. anyone who has ever put their entire being into making an album or any piece of art knows, it is no easy feat.
Mentally, physically and spiritually draining, but also rewarding and fulfilling when you finally decide it’s complete and get to share it. as artists, writers, musicians, creators, etc…
To be recognized professionally for our work means a lot, but not more than getting to meet and hear the stories of people who feel connected and who our art has helped in any capacity.
Thank you for inspiring me to continue in my purpose 🙏🏼 I hope this message finds you well and in good spirits 💙”
