Mathew Knowles Explains Why Beyoncé Hasn’t Won Album of the Year at the Grammys

Written by on February 11, 2024

During a chat on TMZ Live, Mathew Knowles pointed the finger at Beyoncé’s record label, Columbia Records, rather than the voting members of the Recording Academy. He explained that record labels can only submit one artist per category for consideration. Knowles suggested that Columbia Records hasn’t prioritized Beyoncé for the Album of the Year category.
He cited the 2017 Grammy Awards, where Adele’s album 25 trumped Beyoncé’s Lemonade. Both artists are signed under Columbia Records, leading Knowles to speculate about potential financial motives behind the decision. He hinted that Adele’s stellar global album sales might have influenced her win over Beyoncé.
