Jay-Z's album 4:44 failed to win a Grammy in 2018, despite Jay having the most nominations that year for the project.

He recently spoke with Tidal about the snub and said the nominating committee missed a golden opportunity.

"In that moment, I was like, ‘They missed the opportunity,’ because people emulate success," said Jay. "In that moment, that album, 4:44, was a moment for us to say, ‘Hip Hop is viewed as a young man’s sport. Now here is this album that could take us into the next sphere.’ I feel like they missed the moment."
 
 “I didn’t feel bad for myself, because I know it’s the Grammys," he continued. "I probably won some joints I shouldn’t have won and I probably lost some joints I should’ve won. That’s the way it goes, so I actually had a party. I had a great time, staying out until 6 in the morning.”

Were you surprised that 4:44 didn't win a Grammy?
