After performing “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” from the album, a pregnant and radiant Beyonce took home the award for “Best Urban Contemporary Album.” In her speech, she addressed the importance of representation in media and popular culture, saying her “intention for the film and album was to create a body of work that will give a voice to our pain, our struggles, our darkness and our history.”
Though Adele took home the “Album of the Year” trophy for 25, she tearfully praised Beyonce in her acceptance speech, calling her “the artist of my life.” Beyonce could be seen visibly tearing up, as Adele continued to praise her and Lemonade for being one of the best albums of the year.
