Frank Ocean's new albums ineligible for Grammys

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Frank Ocean's new music will not be able to receive any Grammys next year as the singer did not submit his albums "Blonde" and "Endless" by September 30, which was a deadline to be considered for the February awards show.

Grammys representative has confirmed the news, saying the 28-year-old singer's albums are ineligible for the 2017 Grammys race as he did not submit them on time, reported Entertainment Weekly.

Even though Ocean's albums "Endless" and "Blonde" were released on August 19 and 20, respectively, much before the deadline, his reason for not submitting them on time is still unclear.

"Blonde" also debuted at No 1 position on Billboard's Top 200 albums chart in its first week. Initial entries for Grammy consideration were due August 24.
