Following his controversial snub from this year's Grammys nominations, The Weeknd said "Because of the secret committees, I will no longer allow my label to submit my music to the Grammys".
His 2019 single, Blinding Lights, was crowned the Top Global Digital Single of 2020. The song delivered 2.72 billion subscription stream equivalents globally. The IFPI Global Digital Single Award is presented to the world’s best-selling single of the year across all digital formats – including single track downloads, and streams on both paid subscription services and ad-supported platforms.
