Ciara’s “Body Party” may have been a huge song this year, but the r&b singer was snubbed by the Grammys this month when the song wasn’t nominated for any awards. Ci took to Instagram to post a note explaining why her hit single didn’t get any love, writing:
“‘Body Party’ going number one this year was a blessing within itself, and for that I am thankful! Unfortunately, it couldn’t be eligible because of the ‘My Boo’ sample in it. I discovered this before the songs allowed for nomination were set … However, this year has been incredible considering the journey a few years prior, and it is JUST the beginning. So, I’za happy, happy girl and thankful to have a Grammy already!! Let’s keep all this good stuff going!”
“Body Party” peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs charts, and #6 on the r&b charts.
