Grammy Awards: Beyoncé is about to set a new record

What’s up with Beyoncé? She recently performed a concert – her first in four years – at a hotel in Dubai. The fact that she didn’t play any songs from her current album “Renaissance”, which is heavily influenced by black queer club culture, shouldn’t have been a coincidence, after all, the United Arab Emirates is a homophobic country in which same-sex sex is forbidden – extramarital sex too, by the way.

Queen Bey is said to have received an amount in the double-digit millions for appearing at the Sheikhs. She really shouldn’t be suffering from a lack of money.

Especially since she announced this week that she is going on tour. She cuts Berlin and will instead complete her Germany appearances in Frankfurt, Hamburg and Cologne. In view of the Dubai number, I don’t think it’s that bad. Also, I saw her with her husband Jay-Z at the Olympic Stadium in 2018, which was very impressive.

The list of her Grammy nominations is also very impressive: Beyoncé is represented in nine categories with “Renaissance” and is therefore the frontrunner in the nominee field. Should she win four awards, she will be the most awarded artist in Grammy history. It would have to be hell if the 41-year-old didn’t break this record on Sunday night in Los Angeles.

However, in the king category “Best Album” she has strong competition in Kendrick Lamar, Harry Styles, Adele and Bad Bunny. Abba are also represented here with “Voyage”, but should have more of an outsider chance.

For “Song of the Year,” Beyoncé competes with “Break My Soul” against, among others, Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” – and also a bit against Jay-Z, who was one of four featured guests on DJ Khaled’s “God Did”. has. Perhaps Harry Styles will win the race here with his ubiquitous a-ha memory track As I Was.

The six-time Brit will appear on the Grammy show hosted by Trevor Noah. Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Steve Lacy, Lizzo, Kim Petras and Sam Smith are also announced. Not Beyoncé – maybe the fee was too low for the most important US music award.
