LOS ANGELES, Feb 7, (Agencies): Kelly Rowland expressed admiration and affection for JAY-Z, applauding the powerful message he delivered at the GRAMMYs regarding the Recording Academy’s historical oversight of his wife, Beyoncé. On the red carpet at the premiere of “Bob Marley: One Love” in Los Angeles, Rowland shared her thoughts on JAY-Z’s comments and emphasized her pride in him.

“Shawn Carter is one of the greatest men I know, and his words ring so loud to me,” said Rowland with a smile. “I couldn’t be more proud of him.”

Discussing JAY-Z’s impactful statements, Rowland expressed her happiness, noting that he made many artists feel acknowledged and heard during his time on stage. The rapper, known for hits like “Dirt Off Your Shoulder,” took the opportunity at the GRAMMYs to address the Recording Academy’s past oversights, including the snubbing of DMX in 1998 and, notably, his wife Beyoncé.

Accepting the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award alongside his 12-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, JAY-Z emphasized the need for the Recording Academy to correct its mistakes. He highlighted the subjectivity of music and opinions while urging the Academy to strive for accuracy in its decisions.

Although he avoided directly mentioning Beyoncé to spare her embarrassment, JAY-Z underscored the injustice of the most decorated artist in GRAMMY history, with 32 wins, never receiving the Album of the Year accolade. His speech aimed to bring attention to this disparity on a global stage, making a significant impact on the music industry conversation.
