The turbulence over who should have won Album of the Year at this year’s Grammys seems to be (almost) behind us. There is still some debate circulating that the Grammys awarding Beck over Beyoncé speaks volumes about how the music industry really works. Unfortunately, less than 20 percent of Album of the Year accolades are awarded to artists of color. Even astronauts are talking about Yoncé’s snub.
As much as we—and especially Kanye—would have loved to see Beyoncé go home with a win, there’s a bit of a silver lining. This SoundCloud mashup between Beck’s “Single Loser” and Queen Bey’s “Single Ladies” might be the perfect mediator.
Give it a listen while we lay our discrepancies to rest. Winner or not, we all know Beyoncé is our number one. And we do love Beck a little more knowing how good of a sport he was about the whole thing.
