Beyoncé is seen as a leading figure in the pop music industry. Her numerous top-charting songs and enthralling musical performances have earned her a devoted worldwide fanbase, cementing her legacy in music history. While she made history at the Grammys, it seems Jay-Z believes she deserved to win ‘Album Of The Year’ as well.
The singer became the single most-winning artist in Grammys history, smashing a longstanding record that had been standing since 1998, with 32 Grammy awards to her name.
That being said, Beyoncé did not win ‘Album Of The Year.’ While speaking with Tidal, Jay-Z talked about his wife not being able to win the award. The rapper made it clear that he believes she deserved to win ‘Album Of The Year.’
“The truth is, we grew up wanting to be on the Grammys, and it was our goal. We just want them to get it right. That’s what we want.
Even with Bey, I felt like they missed the moment. Not just [her 2016 record] Lemonade; [also] when Beck won over her [for Album of the Year in 2015]. I was like, ‘Oh, y’all missed it.’
Look what it’s done to the culture. Look how the energy of the world moved,” the “Empire State of Mind” musician said. “They play her whole album in the club. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that. The whole entire joint — like, everything?!”
He continued: “Every remix is amazing. Everyone’s inspired. It has inspired the world. When it just inspires creativity, that’s an album. That has to be Album of the Year.”
Despite being nominated for the Album of the Year distinction four times, Beyoncé was never able to win the award. Later in the evening, Harry Styles won Album of the Year for Harry’s House. Regardless, Beyoncé still made history and that’s all that matters.
