The-Dream Says ‘N****s Be On CP Time’ With Beyoncé Stuck In Traffic During 2023 Grammy Awards Debut Speech
The-Dream was almost too candid in accepting Beyoncé’s first Grammy Award from TV broadcasting because she was stuck in traffic.
During this year’s ceremony, Beyoncé won Best R&B Song for her viral track “Cuff It,” earning her her 31st Grammy.
The post The-Dream Says ‘N****s Be On CP Time’ With Beyoncé Stuck In Traffic during First 2023 Grammy Speech appeared first on Blavity.
Instead of the singer accepting the award, The-Dream and Nile Rodgers, who worked on the song with her, accepted the honor on Queen Bey’s behalf.
“Y’all know niggas on CP time,” The-Dream said. “Beyoncé thank you all.”
Rodgers went on to say, “When I got called on to play on this song, it was the most organic thing that has ever happened to me. I heard the song and I said, ‘I want to play on this now.’ It was a catch. I promise. I played there. It was a catch. I never even had, ‘Well, Nile, maybe you should do this, maybe you should do that.’ It was just what I felt in my heart. I am so happy to work with all of you.
Host Trevor Noah then gave an update on Beyoncé’s ETA.
“Beyoncé is on her way. The advantage of hosting the Grammys in Los Angeles is that anyone can be here. The downside of hosting the Grammys in LA is the traffic,” Noah joked. “Beyoncé is on her way.”
Immediately after The-Dream’s comment, Twitter erupted with reactions to the unexpected remark.
Shortly after, Beyoncé was seen with husband Jay-Z in the audience and accepted the award for Best Dance/Electronic Album in her first speech of the night.
“The Queen is officially in the building. Beyoncé Knowles. Thank you so much. I was shocked to learn that traffic could stop you. I thought you could travel through space and time,” Noah said.
