In an interview with Tidal done before the Grammys, her husband spoke about why he believed her album deserved to take home the coveted award.

“The truth is, we grew up wanting to be on the Grammys, and it was our goal. We just want them to get it right. That’s what we want,” Jay-Z said, speaking about his own losses at previous Grammys ceremonies. “Even with Bey, I felt like they missed the moment. Not just Lemonade; [also] when Beck won over her [for album of the year at the 2015 show]. I was like, ‘Oh, y’all missed it.'”
