Jay-Z has explained why he believed Beyoncé deserved to win Album Of The Year at the 2023 Grammys with her recent album ‘Renaissance’.
The rapper was speaking to Tidal Magazine ahead of the ceremony, which would see Beyoncé controversially lose out on the award to Harry Styles, who took the Grammy home for his album ‘Harry’s House’.
Hov 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. Every remix is better than the other one.”
On the night, Beyoncé broke the record for the most Grammy wins of all time.
She won four awards – Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for ‘Renaissance’, Best Dance/Electronic Recording for ‘Break My Soul’, Best Traditional R&B Performance for ‘Plastic Off The Sofa’ and Best R&B Song for ‘Cuff It’ – taking her total Grammy wins to 32.
JAY-Z also called out the Grammys,  for snubbing 4:44 in 2018.
 Hov criticized the Recording Academy for overlooking his 13th album in its respective categories that year. According to the Roc Nation boss, 4:44 was truly a moment for Hip Hop as it proved the culture isn’t just a young man’s game.
“In that moment, I was like, ‘They missed the opportunity,’ because people emulate success,” he said. “In that moment, that album, 4:44, was a moment for us to say, ‘Hip Hop is viewed as a young man’s sport. Now here is this album that could take us into the next sphere.’ I feel like they missed the moment.”
