Jay-Z and Beyoncé Prove They Are The Most Powerful Couple In Industry At Grammys

By  |  594 Comments

beyandjaygrammyCollectively Jay-Z and Beyoncé took home a total of four awards from the Grammys. But that is not what makes this couple the ultimate power couple. In Between The Sheets singer, Ron Isley, predicted the couple would be where they are today, when they first started dating.

If you watched closely they’re branding was everywhere. There was cross promotion throughout the entire show, for these two. Just like the SuperBowl, Pepsi was an endorser of the Grammys, which, you guessed it, works in Beyoncé’s favor. During the breaks you could see the airing of a Pepsi commercial that featured the songstress and the announcement for her world tour.

Jay-Z took home awards for his work on “N****s In Paris”, which he rapped and produced. Jay-Z even helped his buddy, Justin Timberlake, when he emerged from the front row, mic in hand, to spit a few verses.  But that was not the thing that proved that he is a man of power in this industry. What proved it was when he went up to accept the award for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration”  for “ No Church In The Wild” , which featured Frank Ocean and Kanyé West.

After everyone that joined him, on stage gave their spill, the exit music began to play. But the music suddenly stopped when Jay-Z began to speak , making a funny comment about producer, The Dream’s, hat, “I want to thank the swap meet for his hat.” Now that’s power. Any other artist would have been quickly ushered off stage.

    When you consider the fact that Blacks own .5 of 1% of businesses in this country, you begin to assess wealth from a different perspective. I am always happy when Black people accumulate any type of wealth, (especially if is are acquired through humanistic endeavors) but we have to start thinking about the bigger picture. We have to start focusing on group wealth because that is what keeps us respected and protected.

    Society only serves and protects those that have a strong economic foundation.

    Mr.Dixon ,what is wrong with living while you are here?Too much emphasis is placed on dying by most people.Beyonce and Jay-Z are royalty in the music industry. Let them live and enjoy the purple rain while they can.I don’t envy them but I can say some of the things most people are concerned about are not their worries.
    I hear too much “hateration “about those two.I Just wish they would share the joy more with their people and fans.

    Overall more hype
    Has either one of them said anything about why so many black people being killed and locked ?
    Has either one discuss the creation of a liberation currency system to help a vast % of poor black people .
    Right now a vast % of black people both genders are under some type of media brainwash spell of hype and more hype.
    Glad I missed the show period..

    If you shake your head at this, you are a hater. If you question this, you don’t want folks to succeed. If you mention Illuminati in the Music industry, you are a conspiracy theorists, if you question the worth of these two as role models, “Put A Ring On It” & “N****s in Paris”, you just don’t know what’s up. And if you say anything about the palsy wowsy goings on between these two and the POTUS, well you are all of the above and some. But I ask, how are they relevant? Why are they being given accolades about music that is clearly leading the youth down the wrong track? And why is this okay??? Just saying! The days of true warriors and leaders for African Americans are long gone. The media gives us this, as if “this” is all we have to offer to each other and the world. SMDH 🙁

      Ms. Nana—– if you listen to the ignorance of the folk who are caught up in the –wow look at what they got syndrome– you will stunt your growth-as one who has the vision to see things that are relevant to the progress of our people who are unfortunately victims of MATERIAL SLAVERY which prevents them from seeing what you may see. So stay focused and surround yourself around like minded people.

      Peace.

    B. and J are just a small part of the equation—let them BE——we cannot control every black persons movements—–Some are gonna go for the illusion and that’s just the way it is—-we do not live in a single minded world – whose to say they’re not asleep with one eye open.

    I don’t have anything against Beyonce or Jayz, but yes people are putting too much emphasis on the couple, yeah they are good singers, however they aren’t the best.I still love Baby Face,Jennifer Hudson, Mary J Blige, Mariah Carey, SADE, Alecia Keys ,still big time songbirds in my book, and they will not outshine the legacy voices of Whitney Houston or Michael Jackson, ones who not only song really great but has done great things for children/or on behalf of children and enjoyed giving to different charities.Up shaking your butt and thugging in rap songs often, does not keep cheering you on at the end of the day or mark a touching momemt in somebody’s life. AND NO IM NOT A HATER BUT HELL YEAH A REALIST!!!!!!!
