Jay-Z and Beyoncé just took home a major prize overseas, but it’s the way they accepted it that’s making waves on the internet.
On Wednesday (Feb. 20), the power couple won Best International Group at the 2019 Brit Awards, and to accept the award, the two uploaded a video of themselves accepting the trophy in front of a portrait of Meghan Markle, a retired American actress who married Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex last year.
Taking things back a bit, Hov and Bey, collectively known as The Carters, were honored for their collaborative project Everything Is Love, an album that includes their hit single “Apeshit.” In a video she uploaded to her Instagram account, Bey thanked her fans.
“Thank you so much to the Brit Awards for this incredible honor, you guys have always been so supportive. Everything is love. Thank you,” said the Queen Bey, with Hov jokingly replying back, “You’re welcome.”
In another photo, Beyoncé’s writes in the caption, “Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle. How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova. 🙌🏾 In honor of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy.”
This award adds to their Grammy win earlier this month for Best Urban Contemporary Album for Everything Is. Love.
