Beyonce lost a couple of Grammys to Adele, but she’s not letting that bring her down. Instead, the “Formation” singer dropped a new song with DJ Khaled and husband Jay Z after the curtains closed on Sunday night.
Immediately after the Grammys concluded, the track called “Shining” from DJ Khaled’s upcoming album “Grateful” was released on Tidal.
Bey’s chorus goes, “All of this winnin’ I’ve been losin’ my mind, yeah / Oh, hold on, hold on, baby / Don’t try to / Slow me down.”
Beyonce lost to Adele in the categories “Record of the Year,” “Album of the Year,” “Song of the Year” and “Best Pop Solo Performance.”
When Adele won “Album of the Year,” she said she felt that “Lemonade” was robbed and proceeded to praise Beyonce and the work she does.
“I can’t possibly accept this award,” Adele said in her acceptance speech. “I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful and gracious, [but] the artist of my life is Beyonce, and the album to me, the “Lemonade” album, was so monumental, and so well thought out. And so beautiful and soul-bearing and we all got to see another side of you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that.”
She added, “All us artists adore you. You are our light. And the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves. And I love you. I always have. And I always will.”
However, Beyonce didn’t walk away empty-handed: Queen Bey won “Best Urban Contemporary Album” for her album “Lemonade” and best music video for “Formation.”
And she ultimately won the night with her goddess-like performance.
