Adele wins Record of the Year, Song of the Year AND Album of the Year over Beyonce’s Lemonade (2017)
There arguably hasn’t been a more impactful pop album in the past five years like Beyonce‘s Lemonade. “Formation” alone had Beyonce reminding the world that she’s Blackity Black Back and a woman in charge. But a fire single and a poignant hour-long music-movie was no match for safe pop music by a White artist. They couldn’t give Beyonce ONE of the big three Grammy awards.
A complete robbery.
Adele herself knew it in her acceptance speech above.
