Hello, Adele? It appears that you might have had a wee bit of shade cast your way from Justin Timberlake.
The “SexyBack” singer took to Twitter on Wednesday to heap praise on the Calvin Harris/Frank Ocean/Migos collaboration, “Slide.”
He also opined that Ocean’s latest album “Blonde” was the real top long-player of 2016, no matter what the Grammy Awards had to say about it.
“That Calvin Harris/Frank Ocean/Migos tho……..,” Timberlake tweeted on Wednesday, before adding, “While I’m at it… Frank Ocean had the REAL Album Of The Year with BLONDE. #NotFakeNews.”

As music fans might recall, Adele took home Album of the Year honors at the Grammys in February, and it didn’t appear to be the result of an envelope mix-up of any kind.
Ocean, meanwhile, opted not to submit “Blonde” for consideration in the latest Grammys, telling the New York Times that the Grammys process “seems to be dated.”
“That institution certainly has nostalgic importance,” Ocean told the Times. “It just doesn’t seem to be representing very well for people who come from where I come from, and hold down what I hold down.”
Ocean added, “I think the infrastructure of the awarding system and the nomination system and screening system is dated … I’d rather this be my Colin Kaepernick moment for the Grammys than sit there in the audience.”
