In a quest to expand its diversity and scope, the music world’s most prestigious, comprehensive and — at times — contentious annual awards show is expanding its four biggest categories.

    BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — When Harvey Mason jr. took the helm at the Recording Academy, the Grammy-nominated producer knew there would be an uphill climb. He’s heard firsthand from some in the music community that the academy wasn’t a fit for them, the award voting process was ineffective, and that the organization lacked diversity. Those critical responses have fueled Mason’s mission as the academy’s CEO to right the wrongs and listen to the voices of the unheard. He’s already replaced the nominations review committee with a new member peer-driven voting system, overhauled the leadership with two co-presidents, increased membership and committed to hiring more diverse candidates with an inclusion rider for next year’s Grammy Awards. So far, Mason feels like the academy — which annually produces the Grammys — is moving in the right direction to regain the trust of the music community. “We’re learning and we’re changing,” Mason said in an interview at his studio in Burbank, California. He’s a successful producer who has worked with Beyoncé, Chris Brown and Whitney Houston. He was elected president and...

    Canadian singer-songwriter The Weeknd is calling out the Grammys, blasting the Recording Academy as “corrupt,” and announced his decision to not submit his music to be considered for recognition despite the organization’s latest commitment to reform. Born Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, the three-time Grammy-winner was reportedly the catalyst for recent rules changes the Recording Academy made that eliminated the secret nominating-review committees that considered past nominees for awards. The Weeknd criticized the awards because he was shut out even though his album After Hours was one of the industry’s biggest albums, and “Blinding Lights” was one of the most-streamed songs of the year. “The trust has been broken for so long between the Grammy organization and artists that it would be unwise to raise a victory flag,” The Weeknd told Variety.
