Let’s Talk About The Grammy’s

Last year, Kendrick Lamar lost out to Taylor Swift and a lot of people were disappointed. Nevertheless we all tuned in to see Beyonce and Chance The rapper sweep the awards this year.

I don’t have anything against Adele, I absolutely adored Hello! Her voice is impeccable and her ability to emote is incredible. I don’t doubt that she deserved awards for Hello but when it comes to Album of the year, I agree with her in saying that award belonged to Beyonce’s Lemonade.

One of the pre-Grammy commentators predicted that Adele would win the award and her reasoning was

“You know, I just think Adele’s album did a better job of bringing us together.”

The only reason why this statement infuriates me is that it takes Beyonce’s album from a masterful celebration of black womanhood to a device purely employed to bring division, and that is not what it is.

I don’t know what your thoughts are but I have the same question as Adele.

“What the f– does Beyonce have to do to win album of the year?”

I hope she never resorts to creating “safer” music and continues to bare her soul in her music because it truly is empowering for people all around the globe.
