In 2024, Minaj was nominated for ‘Barbie World’ with Ice Spice in the ‘Best Song Written For Visual Media’ category. Ice Spice is also nominated in the ‘Best Artist’ category. But, during the pre-show announcements, the Recording Academy accidentally announced ‘Barbie World’ as the ‘Best Rap Song’ only to delete it, which angered Barbz.

    The Grammys have made a major blunder with their pre-show announcement of the ‘Best Rap Song’ winner at the Grammys 2024. There were many rap extraordinaires nominated in the category. Artists like Doja Cat, Lil Uzi Vert, Drake, 21 Savage, and others were nominated in the category with their respective nominated songs.

    Along with them, Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice’s ‘Barbie World’ was also nominated in the category. ‘Scientists & Engineers’ by André 3000 and Killer Mike were also nominated. The social media team announced the winner before the show.

    They first announced that Nicki and the ‘Munch’ rapper had won the Grammy. However, they pulled out the tweet immediately and gave the award to Killer Mike. The mistake has caused a stir on social media, as Barbz calls it a smear campaign against Nicki Minaj, following her beef with Megan Thee Stallion after she released her diss track ‘Hiss’.

    Now, Barbz has reacted strongly to the Recording Academy’s blunder.
