This year's Grammys was one for the books!

Beyonce was named the artist with the most Grammy wins of all time after taking home dance/electronic recording, dance/electronic album, R&B performance, and R&B song awards. However, when it came down to album of the year, fans were shocked again to see Renaissance lose to Harry Styles' album Harry's House. This makes the fourth time Bey has lost the award with the last time being her 2016 album, Lemonade, losing to Adele's 25. During Adele's acceptance speech, even she said she felt like Beyonce was more deserving of the award.

Jay-Z is now mimicking most people who feel Beyonce was snubbed this year in the Album of the Year category saying, “Even with Bey, I felt like they missed the moment,” the rapper said, referencing the 2017 Grammy Awards where Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” lost album of the year to Adele’s “25.” He says he felt the same way with regard to Beck’s album of the year win over Beyoncé’s namesake album in 2015. He goes on to say, “Look what it’s done to the culture. Look how the energy of the world moved,” Jay-Z said of “Renaissance” when asked if he felt it deserved to win album of the year. “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.”

She may have lost the award, but she definitely won the Grammys that night making history (and during Black History/Herstory Month, too!).
