What a crazy time it is right now… next month are the GRAMMY Awards and I couldn’t be more thrilled / humbled / excited to be nominated with Wiz Khalifa for See You Again!
To celebrate, I’m teaming up with the GRAMMY Foundation to give you a chance to hang out with me at one of my upcoming concerts. I’ll give you a private performance backstage, we’ll hang out, and you’ll have VIP seats to the show!
I still can’t believe what an honor it is to be performing my songs for all of you, and this is my way of saying THANK YOU to everyone who’s been supporting me!
It only takes $5 to enter, and all of the money helps the GRAMMY Foundation provide music education for people all around the world. The more money you donate, the more rewards there are, too… and the more chances you have to win the VIP trip to my show! Did I mention that airfare and hotel are included?! It’s true.
This is my first campaign with Prizeo, and I would love to have your support. Everyone should have the opportunity to play music and tell their stories… and you can help make this happen!
THR.COM – The Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Pluth song was previously honored with Golden Globe and Grammy nominations but missed out on an Oscar nom.
“See You Again,” the hit song and emotional Paul Walker tribute by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth on the Furious 7 soundtrack, was named best song at the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday.
The win comes three days after the song was notably left out of the Oscar race as it failed to land a nomination.
The category was one of several that were not part of the live Critics’ Choice telecast and was revealed on Twitter by the awards’ official account before the show started.

The song beat out “Love Me Like You Do” from Fifty Shades of Grey, “Til It Happens to You” from The Hunting Ground, “One Kind of Love” from Love & Mercy, “Writing’s on the Wall” from Spectre and “Simple Song #3” from Youth.
This year’s Oscar mentions for best song include “Earned It” (Fifty Shades of Grey), “Manta Ray” (Racing Extinction), “Simple Song #3” (Youth), “Til It Happens to You” (The Hunting Ground) and “Writing’s on the Wall” (Spectre). The last hip-hop song to win the coveted golden statuette was Three 6 Mafia for “It’s Hard out Here for a Pimp.
“See You Again” shattered records, proving that the Walker farewell song had gone mainstream and stuck with audiences. According to Billboard, “See You Again” is the first hip-hop video to hit one billion YouTube views and broke the Spotify record for most streams in a single day.
The tune has, however, received awards action elsewhere with one Golden Globe nomination and three Grammy nominations. The Roots’ Questlove tweeted his shock of the Oscar snub, writing, “I woulda bet the farm that @wizkhalifa was taking that statue home for “See You Again”. Guess they told me huh? #Oscars “
