Solange Knowles has come out with some shade for The Grammys, after watching her sister Beyoncé lose out on Album Of The Year to Adele.
Taking to Twitter, Solange retweeted the missive Frank Ocean posted before the show, in which he explained he’d be boycotting the ceremony due to its “cultural bias”:

While it’s *only* two words and a link, the message is pretty transparent: she doesn’t seem too keen the night’s top award went to someone who isn’t Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter.
And that’s after Solange took the award for Best R&B Performance for the beaut Cranes In The Sky. “Wuddup” indeed.
Despite the fact Adele was effusive with her praise for Bey upon collecting her award, fans of the Lemonade gun – and even regular civilians who are a lil’ confused by The Grammys’ selection criteria – have had their say on the night’s biggest upset:
2013 – mumford over frank
2014 – daft punk over kendrick
2015 – beck over beyonce
2016 – taylor over kendrick
2017 – adele over beyonce

Adele wins the electoral college, but Beyoncé wins the popular vote.

“Hello,” is a good record, but 25 is not a better album than Lemonade. As total project? Even her own 21 is better than 25. #GRAMMYs

I’m so glad Adele is being real about this because they completely snubbed Beyoncé. Smh.

Beyoncé not winning record/album of the year is a travesty. I love @Adele, but this is a disaster.

Important note: the Beyhive ain’t attacking Adele. Hell, they love Adele, especially after her mid-speech callout.
They’re exclusively mad at The Grammys for apparently overlooking what was, by all accounts, one of 2016’s most vital pop-cultural moments in favour of a highly-polished but not epoch-defining record.

Watch this space to see if this whole deal results in more Frank-style boycotts in 2018.
