DJ Khaled may not have been a big winner at last night’s Grammy Awards, but he’s put together a winning trio with husband and wife duo Jay Z and Beyoncé.
Last night the trio attended the Grammy Awards, where Beyoncé delivered an inspiring and emotional performance after receiving a touching introduction from her mother, Tina Knowles. Beyoncé performed two tracks from her nominated album Lemonade, including “Sand Castles” and “Love Drought,” which means the singer has now performed every song from the 2016 record at an award show.
The performance-packed award show extended into almost four hours, but the party didn’t stop when the end credits rolled, thanks to DJ Khaled. The famous DJ dropped “Shining,” a new single with Beyoncé and Jay Z and their first collab since 2013’s “Drunk In Love.”

The new track heavily features Queen Bey, who takes on the first half of the song with a flow we don’t often hear from the singer, boasting, “All of this winning / I’ve been losing my mind.”
As for Jay Z, he addresses a possible beef with Drake, as well as his expanding fatherhood with the line, “Ran to the dealer / Bought twin Mercedes / The European trucks for the twin babies.”
DJ Khaled produced the single, which is expected to appear on his upcoming tenth studio album Grateful, along with Toronto native and OVO recording artist PARTYNEXTDOOR.
“Shining” is unsurprisingly streaming on Tidal, but it’s worth checking out not only for the bouncy single, but also for the super cute artwork that features DJ Khaled’s son, Asahd.
At last night’s award show, Bey took home two awards, including Best Urban Contemporary Album for Lemonade and Best Music Video, although she did not win Album Of The Year, which went to a very shocked Adele.
While her loss came as a surprise even to the winner herself, if we’ve learned anything from Beyoncé’s formidable career and Lemonade, nothing will slow her down.
