Beyoncé Wins Best Urban Contemporary Album with 'LEMONADE' at 2017 Grammys

Edging out Rihanna’s ‘ANTI.’

After delivering a jaw-dropping performance of “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles,” Beyoncé has received the honor of Best Urban Contemporary Album with LEMONADE at the 59th Grammy Awards. Beating Rihanna’s ANTI, Anderson .Paak’s Malibu and more, the singer thanked God, her husband Jay Z, her daughter Blue Ivy and her fans in her acceptance speech.

“We all experience pain and loss, and often we become inaudible,” said Beyoncé. “My intention for the film and album was to create body of work that will give a voice to our pain — our struggles, our darkness, and our history. To confront issues that make us uncomfortable.” She continued,

It’s important to me to show images to my children that reflect their beauty so they can grow up in a world where they look in the mirror first at their own families as well as the news, the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the White House, and the Grammys, and see themselves and have no doubt that they’re beautiful and intelligent and capable. This is something I want for every child of every race, and I feel it’s vital that we learn from the past and recognize our tendencies to repeat our mistakes. Thank you again for honoring LEMONADE.

Beyoncé was nominated in nine different categories this year, including Song of the Year and Best Music Video for “Formation.” Watch her moving speech above and head over here to see more of 2017 Grammys.
