American rap legend, Jay-Z has called out Grammy organisers for not giving his wife, superstar singer, Beyonce the best album award.
Jay-Z made this known during his acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards after winning the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award for his contribution to the music industry.
Beyonce sat in the crowd, listening to the speech.
While accepting his award, Jay-Z said that there were more important things in life than winning Grammys, noting that they were based on personal preferences, and pointing out his wife, Beyonce, had never won best album category.
“I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than everyone and never won Album of the Year.
“So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that. The most Grammys; never won Album of the Year. That doesn’t work.”
“Beyoncé has more Grammys than anyone and never won album of the year”
