JAY-Z may have chastised the Recording Academy for Beyoncé’s lack of an Album of the Year award, but Mathew Knowles, Beyoncé’s father, blamed her former label. Knowles told TMZ, “People don’t know the process. Your record label can only appoint one person in a category. So that means her record label, Columbia Records, has never really put her in that category for consideration.” When asked why Columbia Records would prop up an artist like Adele over Beyoncé, Knowles says it could be several things, including that it may be felt that Beyoncé has success and another artist is who they choose to give a break to.
