At the 65th Grammy Awards, which took place in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 5, 2023, Harry Styles’ album Harry’s House won Album of the Year, beating out Beyoncé’s Renaissance
The 53-year-old rap legend discussed his 41-year-old wife’s previous album of the year losses for 2013’s Beyoncé and 2016’s Lemonade in an interview with Tidal before the ceremony.
He stated, “The truth is, it was our goal to be on the Grammys when we were kids.” We simply want them to do the right thing. That’s what we want… Of course, music is subjective, but you have to be within a reasonable range.”
The rapper said, “Even with Bey, I felt like they missed the moment,” referring to his 2017 and 2015 Grammy defeats. In addition to Lemonade; [ also] when Beck won her over [at the 2015 show for album of the year]. “Oh, y’all missed it,” I thought.
He went on to say why he believed Renaissance should win album of the year.
“Look at the damage it has done to the culture. “Look at how the world’s energy moved,” he said. In the club, they play her entire album. I don’t recall ever seeing that. Everything in the joint, like everything. Each remix is fantastic. Everyone is motivated. The world has been inspired by it.
Beyonce made history when she won gold for Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Song Written for Visual Media, Best R&B Song, and Best Dance/Electric Record, despite not winning Album of the Year.
The ‘Crazy in Love ‘singer now has won 32 Grammys, the most of any artist.
