Drake’s microphone was cut off at the 2019 Grammy as he was in the middle of delivering an acceptance speech.

According to reports on, near the end of the speech for Best Rap Song the 32-year-old rapper took a long pause, so the cameras panned away and the exit music started to play.


A representative explained, “During Drake’s speech, there was a natural pause and at that moment the producers did assume that he was done and then cut to commercial,” a rep for the Grammy told Variety in a statement, adding, “However the producers did speak with Drake following his speech and did offer him to come back on stage to finish whatever his thoughts were. But Drake said he was happy with what he said and didn’t have anything to add.”
