National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences President Harvey Mason said the AI-generated song “Heart On My Sleeve” will not be nominated for a Grammy Award. The composition by anonymous musician Ghostwriter was created using neural networks based on the voices of The Weeknd and Drake. Hypebeast writes about this.
Mason said reports that the song “Heart On My Sleeve” could qualify for a Grammy is false. “Even though the composition was written by one person, the vocals were obtained illegally and their use was not approved by either the label or the artists themselves,” she said.
Harvey added that he follows the development of technology with interest and takes artificial intelligence seriously, but so far the rules for participation in the award have not changed. “The Academy is here to support, appreciate and protect human creators, period,” he concluded.
