There’s been a lot of talk lately about the talents of Beck and Beyonce. Of course, none of that talk has really been done by the artists themselves. Instead, most of the talk has simply been Kanye West arguing with himself.
After Beck beat out Beyonce at the Grammy Awards for album of the year, Kanye West went on a rant about how Beck has no respect for artistry.
Kanye said: “I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists, to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t gonna play with them no more. And Beck needs to respect artistry and he should’ve given his award to Beyoncé. Because when you keep on diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in their face after they deliver monumental feats of music, you’re disrespectful to inspiration. And we as musicians have to inspire people who go to work every day, and they listen to that Beyoncé album and they feel like it takes them to another place.”
While Kanye later backtracked and said that he “loved Beck,” he still doesn’t think that Beck deserved the album of the year award. And a lot of people agreed with him. There’s been an ongoing debate about who really had the best album.
But what if Beck and Beyonce recorded an album together? A new track by “Beckyonce” recently popped up on SoundCloud. Check out “Single Loser: Put A Beck On It” below.
