American billionaire Rapper, Jay Z has slammed the Grammy Academy for not awarding Global Impact award to wife and songstress, Beyonce.
Jay-Z accepts the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award alongside his daughter Blue Ivy on stage during the 66th Annual Grammy Awards at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on February 4, 2024.
“Obviously, it’s subjective because, you know, it’s music and it’s opinion based. But you know, some things, you know, I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than everyone and never won album of the year,” Jay-Z said, as the camera cut to his wife, Beyoncé. He was accepting the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award.
“So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that. The most Grammys; never won album of the year. It doesn’t work,” he said as their daughter Blue Ivy stood beside him.
