Jay-Z Defended Beyoncé At The Grammys & He Was Proper

That is the Grammys, and it’s imagined to be in regards to the greatest. Taylor Swift’s newest album isn’t even within the high 5 of Swift’s catalog. Somebody tweeted that it ought to have been known as ‘MIDnights’ and I laughed out loud on the accuracy. If we’re simply contemplating this album towards the opposite nominees, Swift doesn’t have the most effective voice (everybody within the class beats her there, however as for her direct friends, Olivia Rodrigo and Lana Del Rey can each outsing her), the most effective manufacturing (Jon Batiste and Janelle Monae would love a phrase), or the most effective stage presence or movies (Miley Cyrus laps circles round her right here) and even the most effective songs (“Flowers” and “Kill Invoice” are extra memorable than something on Midnights and Swift’s greatest music of 2023 was “Merciless Summer season” which got here out in 2019 and gained reputation once more final yr). So if it’s a meritocracy, what are we even speaking about? Some Swift defenders declare the Album of the 12 months is meant to go to the artist who had the largest yr in popular culture. You may argue Swift (because of her Eras tour, her romance with Travis Kelce, and being named Time Individual of the 12 months) had a giant yr, but when that is the barometer used to award Album of the 12 months, Beyoncé ought to have three of them — a minimum of. If we’re simply speaking in regards to the music, let’s be sincere: Taylor Swift didn’t even belong within the class. That’s not a knock on Swift’s work essentially, however on the Grammys insistence on awarding her, even when she hasn’t met her personal customary of high quality.
