"Stream + Repeat" is a weekly series in which we share tracks we can't get enough of and the lyrics that's got us like, YAAAASS.

In the spirit of today's Grammys nomination announcement, we asked five people to name drop one song or artist they felt was snubbed by the Recording Academy. Click on the artist to stream the song.


Major Lazer + DJ Snake ft. MØ

Record of The Year/Dance Recording

"I have no idea why this song has no nods. Maybe because Diplo is involved in Jack Ü, who did get nominated, and his team chose to push that project? I don't know, little bewildered. #1 streamed song of all time on Spotify with over 500 million plays. It was also #1 on the Top 40 charts in America. Was released in March of 2015 so it's eligible for these Grammys." - Alex Harrow, Milk & Honey LA
