Calvin Harris didn’t win the Grammy Award for Producer the Year — but that wasn’t due to lack trying!
In 2017, he dropped some the freshest music his career with featuring tons big names like Katy Perry, Pharrell, Big Sean, Migos, Nicki Minaj, Khalid, Future and more. But what he really thought would get the attention the Recording Academy wasn’t his star-studded collaborations.
“Last year I grew a big ol beard in order to be taken seriously by the Grammys as a producer,” Calvin just shared in an Instagram post. “It worked to an extent — my Producer the Year nomination came through and I was happy the beard was performing as well as I had hoped.”
Then, reality struck in…
“But unfortunately this weekend I learned that even a new beard has its limitations. On Sunday I lost out to the incredible Greg Kurstin. A big ol beard can only take you so far.”
“An important lesson learned that I am happy to pass forward to all you good people. Now my beard is gone, the experiment completed and I can move forward with 2018! God bless and thank you for your support!!!”
LOL, ok then. Better luck to Calvin Harris and his beard (or lack there) next year!
