Muni Long's 'Made For Me' Misses Chance for Grammy in 2025

Jermaine Dupri, the song's producer, took to Twitter to share his frustrations with the recording academy.

Sing along: Twin! Where have you been? Nobody knows me like you do (nobody). Nobody gon' love me quite like you (nobody, yeah). Can't even deny it, every time I try it. One look in my eyes, you know I'm lying, lying! This viral hit, “Made For Me” by Muni Long, is the stuff Grammy wins are made of, right? Wrong! 

Apparently, this hit single will not see a Grammy Award win. According to the song’s producer, Jermaine Dupri, “Made For Me” is not eligible for the 2025 Grammys because it was submitted for the 2024 Grammys this year. “You know how crazy that is!?” Dupri asked on X, formerly known as Twitter.

He continued, “The likelihood of me and Bryan [Michael Cox] producing another song of this magnitude might not ever happen again!”

Aww, don’t sell yourself short, Jermaine! With hits like Mariah Carey’s “Honey” and “We Belong Together,” Usher’s “You Make Me Wanna” or “My Boo,” it’s clear the hits are hitting! 

Fans and colleagues were in the comments of Dupri’s post and offered workarounds for his Grammy situation. Many suggested Dupri put out the “Made For Me” Soul Train live version.

The Grammys have historically played in the faces of deserving artists for decades. Many popular songs have been snubbed by the recording academy, like “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “Hey Jude” by The Beatles and “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber to name a few. 

And not to mention Beyoncé consistently being snubbed for album of the year four times! Even her husband, Jay Z, who won the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award at the 66th Grammy Awards, couldn’t seal his lips when it came to taking the recording academy to task. During his acceptance speech, with daughter Blue Ivy by his side, Jay said, “She has more Grammys than everybody and never won album of the year. So even by your own metrics that doesn’t work. Think about that.”

Jay said it best, “We want y’all to get it right.”
