    I

    I guess you’re entitled to your own wrong opinion. Speaking of.. 4 didn’t get into Urban Contemporary? How? And Chris Brown’s panned album did?

    The Grammy’s love to ignore artists during their “flop” eras. 4 was perceived as Beyoncé’s flop era. They did the same with Gaga for ARTPOP and many of other artists that they usually like.

    Beyoncé’s best work is Lemonade IMO. Her self titled was a good project but it wasn’t anything special music-wise.

    The real loss was Lemonade losing to 25. Adele was gonna win everything anyways, so why not just give Beyoncé the damn award? Even to this day, Lemonade is still charting while 25 already left the 200.

    25 has lasted many more weeks on the Billboard 200 (it spent over three years on the charts, so not sure why you said “already”), and Lemonade is back because of Homecoming and it was released to streaming sites. That is not even a fair comparison.

    And there was no “urban contemporary” when 4 was released. It was competing for Best R&B Album. Urban Contemporary Album was created a year later.

    I still find it colossally messed up that they intentionally snubbed what was probably the biggest R&B release that year, and definitely one of the better ones, to instead recognize a domestic abuser on an apology tour and a known pedophile. And another one of the R&B nominees/winners that year was accused of rape not long after that year’s awards.

    They screwed up big time.

    To be precise, 25 spent 173 weeks on BB200, whereas Lemonade spent 80. I Am Sasha Fierce spent a whopping 190 weeks on BB200. Self-titled spent 185 weeks.

    So for some reason, Lemonade had shorter longevity.

    Every music body tried on the Chris Brown bandwagon that year and the year after… BET, MTV, AMAs, etc. It’s crazy how fast he was able to come back from that.

    Lemonade’s longevity was stunted by it not being on streaming services.

    Still, 25 had been on the charts since 2015 with only a few weeks outside. Not sure why its longevity vs. Lemonade’s was used against it, especially when it held up well. Plus, 25 will likely be back on it.

    Honey, Lemonade is a hot overrated ass mess.  Take away the visuals (which are mediocre), you’re left with generic songs.  25 is WAY better.

    B’Day is Beyoncé’s best album.

    IMO, Beyoncé’s last great album was 4. Her albums that have been nominated for AOTY would not have been worthy winners in that category.

    I was surprised that Lemonade ended up in the top 5 for the year end list even though it only spent 80 weeks but I guess that was due to sales. The lack of availability on streaming services is what prevented it having even greater commerical success and I still have no clue why Beyoncé thought that was a good idea.

    And even then, I agree that Self Titled losing to Pharrell was more shocking than her losing in the GF categories for either that or Lemonade.

    She probably made more money than she would have if Lemonade went on Spotify and Apple Music, because she encouraged purchases of the album, which retailed for $20 on iTunes.

    It’s still frustrating because this blocked songs like Formation and Sorry from being bigger hits than what they were even though they sold 1M pure each. They would’ve done wonders on streaming if released properly.

    There’s also the case to be made that she could have been more competitive against Adele had the album been available everywhere. Imagine how many people never listened to it because you could only buy it or stream it on Tidal.

    Beyoncé couldn’t do anything against “25”. Adele’s universal force is unstoppable.

    But “Lemonade” would have been more successful in the R&B field if it was on streaming.
