When Beyoncé and Jay-Z arrived at the Grammy Awards in 2021, they abruptly ended the performance.
When the billionaire couple was spotted halfway through the socially distanced ceremony, shortly before Beyoncé won two history-making awards back to back, they created quite a stir on social media timelines.
Many social media users went insane, as they had thought they would not be able to attend. Jay-Z has thrown his support behind Beyoncé, who has refused to appear at this year’s award show.
Megan The Stallion, too, was taken aback by Beyoncé’s presence. As Beyoncé stood next to her to accept their Grammy for Best Rap Song for “Savage,” the singer, who won Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance, was nearly speechless. Megan admitted that she has always wanted to be the “rap Beyoncé,” and that her mother inspired her to do so.
Beyoncé went on to win Best R&B Performance for “Black Parade,” making her the most decorated female artist in Grammy history.
When accepting her history-making prize, the 28-time Grammy winner said she was “so honored” and “so excited.”
“As an artist, I believe it’s my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times so I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world,” she said. She also thanked her three children and congratulated her eldest, Blue Ivy Carter, for her very first Grammy win at age nine for “Brown Skin Girl.”
