Detroit’s own Big Sean went from leading America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday to celebrating his third Grammy Award nomination on Tuesday. 

Big Sean’s track “Bounce Back” from his 2017 album “I Decided” landed him in the Best Rap Performance category of the 60th Grammy Awards.

When asked  how he was celebrating the nomination, he replied via Twitter: “by working harder, bless.”

Big Sean was nominated in 2016 for the song “One Man Can Change the World” on the “Dark Sky Paradise” album. The track,  which featured Kanye West and John Legend, was in the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category, but he lost to Kendrick Lamar for “These Walls.”

And in 2013, “Mercy,” which featured West, Pusha T and 2 Chainz, was nominated for Best Rap Song but lost to West for his single “Ni**as in Paris” with Jay-Z. 

The Cass Tech grad has not made any public statements on his Best Rap Performance nomination.

In that category, Big Sean is nominated alongside Cardi B for her single “Bodak Yellow,” “4:44” by Jay-Z, “Humble” by Lamar and “Bad And Boujee” by Migos featuring Lil Uzi Vert. 

The Grammy Awards will air Jan. 28 on CBS (Channel 62). James Corden will host the event at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
