Beyoncé and her Renaissance album stolen at the Grammy

Beyoncé and her Renaissance album stolen from the Grammy


The day after the Grammy ceremony – evening during which Beyoncé collected 4 statuettes -, several people are indignant at not having seen her win the prizes for the album and the song of the year. 

This was to be Beyoncé's year, writes the Rolling Stone. However, following the Grammy ceremony held on Sunday evening, the magazine protested – just like the admirers of the popular 41-year-old singer – of the two prestigious awards that were allegedly stolen from the artist: those album of the year for Renaissance and song of the year. 

On various discussion forums and on social networks, the singer's admirers say they are furious and disgusted by these results, going so far as to say that the voters of the Recording Academy did not deserve it. »

Rolling Stone describes as “a disappointing moment that ended an otherwise spectacular night on a sour note” when Harry Styles (who has been criticized for appearing lackluster during his performance and exhausted during his thanks) won the trophy for album of the year for Harry's House. Same goes for Bonnie Raitt's Song of the Year win with “Just Like That.”

Those wins would be fueled by votes from older Grammy voters, Rolling Stone believes. Many viewers pointed to the similarity to Herbie Hancock's 2008 victory, which won album of the year for River: The Joni Letters against Amy Winehouse's cult album Back to Black.


Queen Bey broke the record for the most Grammy wins in the history of the series. However, she has never yet received these ultimate distinctions, despite a career rich in more than 25 years full of success. 

Her album Renaissance won four awards, including the best Dance/Electronic album.
