Beyoncé failed to win Album of the Year with Renaissance on Sunday night and speaking to Elliott Wilson Jay-Z said his wife deserved to the award over Harry Styles’ Harry’s House, who took home the award.
“Look what it’s done to the culture. Look how the energy of the world moved. They play her whole album in the club. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that. The whole entire joint — like, everything?! Every remix is amazing. Everyone’s inspired. It has inspired the world. Every remix is better than the other one,” he said.
“It’s inspiring creativity. You know how The Black Album had The Grey Album [Danger Mouse’s 2004 mashup project]? And the one with Radiohead? It was called Jaydiohead [Minty Fresh Beats’ 2009 mashup]. When it just inspires creativity, that’s an album. That has to be Album of the Year. It has to be.”
Bey is now the most awarded artist in Grammy history but her fans were upset she did not win AOTY.
