Omarion was clearly not pleased with the 2016 Grammy nominations on Monday morning. The R&B singer headed to Twitter after the announcements to vent his disappointment that his song “Post to Be” was not nominated a Grammy.

‘”Post to be’ is one of the greatest R&B collaborations ever,’ Omarion wrote. “Even though people act like its easy to make a hit (& it’s not). As an artist you look forward to being acknowledged by the game.” The singer went on to clarify that the snub doesn’t so much anger him as it does motivate him, writing, “This isn’t a “im upset” (post to be) rant. This is a- ok so that wasn’t good enough. I’ll be back. Have my Grammy’s ready.”

This year’s Best R&B nominees were “Coffee” by Miguel, “Earned It” by The Weeknd, “Let It Burn” by Jazmine Sullivan, “Really Love” by D’Angelo and the Vanguard, and “Shame” by Tyrese.

“Post to Be” reached 13 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 list, and features vocals from Jhene Aiko and Chris Brown. Aiko’s verse, which featured the line “he gotta eat the booty like groceries,” helped spur the song’s popularity on social media.
