OK, so this is my humble opinion. Lemonade is 2016’s greatest album among the nominees. I’m not hating on Adele. Adele is not hating on herself. 25 is fantastic. 2016 was a great album year in fact. Let’s not forget Bowie’s Blackstar. There are a lot of things to regret about 2016 but the album releases are not one of them. But conceptually, artistically, visually, the live perfomances. It was Beyoncés Lemonade all the way.
It may seem trivial to some, but black people are seriously lacking in representation when it comes to Album of the year wins in the Grammys. It’s not trivial to a lot of people out there, believe me. And if Beyoncé would have won, it would have meant a lot. There’s no denying.
Beyoncé, you’re an awesome woman. And if it’s any consolation, sometimes I have dreams that come true and the other night I dreamt that Blue Ivy (Bey’s oldest daughter) became the US president that saved the world. Here’s seriously hoping.
