Beyonce is truly more than we deserve.
After being snubbed in the three major categories at Sunday’s GRAMMY Awards, Queen Bey has already blessed us with a new song -- a DJ Khaled collab also featuring her husband, Jay Z -- and it’s just the track we needed to lift our spirits.
The single, titled “Shining,” features Khaled’s typical pageantry and stellar sample work (plus his adorable infant son, Asahd, as the cover art) along with sultry, raw vocals from Queen Bey and a Watch the Throne-era verse from Jay Z, which not-so-subtly references the couple's GRAMMY dominance and also shouts out their recent pregnancy news.
“Ran to the dealer bought twin Mercedes / the European trucks for the twin babies,” the 47-year-old rapper flows, even admitting, “Want a boy and girl to fight for truth / whatever God give me I’m cool.”
However, vocals from Beyonce, 35, are unsurprisingly the highlight of the song, including the titular chorus and a recurring line that will likely become her latest anthem: “Money don’t make me happy / and a fella can’t make me fancy.”
