Despite Adele’s vociferous pleas, Beyonce did not win Album of the Year at the Grammys on Sunday for Lemonade. She did collect her share of trophies though, and tear down the stage with a glowing performance and delivering a heartfelt acceptance speech. All while carrying two of the heirs to the Beyonce-Jay Z throne inside her because that’s just what bosses doe.
Still, even without claiming the big award to end the night, Lemonade did snag the trophy for Best Music Video, so Bey celebrated by dropping two more visuals from the visual album for the songs she performed at the show. Technically “Sandcastles” and “Love Drought” are new videos, but they’ve also been seen before on Lemonade — the film — when it premiered last year on HBO. To date these are the fifth and sixth videos from the film to be released on Bey’s Youtube account, following “All Night,” “Formation,” “Hold Up” and “Sorry.”
With ‘Yonce set to be preoccupied with stuff like being a mom and childbirth, it might be some time before we get new music from the Queen so these videos will have to suffice. But then again, I wouldn’t put it past her to drop a whole new album on the same day she drops two whole new children. Pregnancy didn’t stop her tonight and it reportedly won’t stop her in April when she’s set to headline Coachella either. We all know she’s “strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business.”
Between these new videos, and Beyonce and Jay Z dropping a new track with DJ Khaled immediately after the Grammys, it’s clear the Carter family had big plans for Grammy night 2017.
