Beyoncé deserved Album of the Year at the Grammys. Even Adele, who won that very award, agrees, so much so that she used her acceptance speech to fully Kanye herself, calling out that Beyoncé has one of the best albums of all time. ALL TIME.

Past Grammy winner Frank Ocean anticipated this upset, and didn't submit his own work for awards consideration to protest what he sees as a dated system that neglects black artists.

After Beyoncé was robbed of an award she so clearly deserves, her sister (and great artist in her own right) Solange tweeted out Ocean's recent anti-Grammys essay, suggesting that she feels the same way.

"I've actually been tuning into CBS around this time of year for a while to see who gets the top honor and you now what's really not 'great TV' guys? 1989 getting Album of the Year over To Pimp a Butterfly. Hands down one of the most 'faulty' TV moments I've seen," Ocean wrote on Tumblr, in a post addressed directly to the Grammy producers who criticized the boycott.

He writes, in all caps:

IF YOU’RE UP FOR A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE CULTURAL BIAS AND GENERAL NERVE DAMAGE THE SHOW YOU PRODUCE SUFFERS FROM THEN I’M ALL FOR IT.

The trend repeated itself again with Beyonce's loss and um, people are catching on.

In addition to tweeting out Ocean's post, Solange tweeted out a beautiful, inspirational message out to black girls and women.

Since we're here, we might as well rewatch Beyoncé's beautiful acceptance speech for the award she did win, Best Urban Contemporary Album.
