Jay Z Said Grammys “missed the Moment” Before Beyoncé’s Snub for Album of the Year.

As one of the most powerful couples in the music industry, Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been dominating the Grammy Awards for years. In the days leading up to this year’s awards ceremony, Jay-Z had some thoughts on the Recording Academy’s track record in the Album of the Year category.

In a recent interview with Tidal, Jay-Z offered insight into why he feels the Recording Academy continues to “miss the moment” when it comes to Beyoncé. He pointed to the 2017 Grammy Awards where Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” lost album of the year to Adele’s “25” and the 2015 ceremony where Beck’s album of the year win over Beyoncé’s namesake album.

Despite Beyoncé’s record-breaking year at the 2023 ceremony, her 2022 hit dance/pop album “Renaissance” lost out to Harry Styles’s “Harry’s House” for the album of the year award. It’s an accolade that many felt was due to be awarded to Beyoncé, who has now lost four times in that category to other artists.

When asked if he felt “Renaissance” deserved to win album of the year, Jay-Z said, “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.”

Despite missing out on the Album of the Year award, Beyoncé still had plenty of reasons to celebrate. She became the most awarded artist in Grammy history at Sunday’s ceremony, with her four wins that evening bringing her to a grand total of 32 trophies. For his part, Jay-Z has won 24 total trophies and together, the power couple are tied for the most nominations for any artist (88).

This blog post takes a look at Jay-Z’s thoughts on the Recording Academy’s track record in the Album of the Year category and how he feels about Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” album. Join us as we explore what Jay-Z has to say about the Grammys and why he believes Beyoncé deserves more recognition.
