Diplo Expresses Pride in Sharing Grammy Nominations with Beyoncé

Diplo, a renowned producer and DJ, addressed the recent speculation surrounding his reaction to Beyoncé’s win at the recent Grammy Awards.

The singer won the award for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album and was nominated in the same category for a clip by Diplo where he appeared to say, “They bought it.” 

However, in a recent Instagram post, Diplo cleared up the speculation by sharing the clip and subtitling himself with the milder phrase “I’m glad to be part of this.”

He praised Beyoncé and expressed his pride at seeing his own nomination on the screen in such a large venue in the post’s caption.

“She deserves her flowers,” he wrote in the caption. “When she won, I was just proud to see my nomination on the screen in the huge arena.”

This response from Diplo reflects his great respect for Beyoncé and her accomplishments. The singer is widely regarded as one of the greatest artists of our time and her recent awards are a testament to her talent and hard work.  

Despite speculation surrounding his answer, Diplo is proud to be part of the same industry as Beyonce and believes she is a true legend.  

Fans of both artists can anticipate that they will continue working together in the future thanks to this most recent display of support, which is just one more reason.


Diplo’s Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album demonstrates his enduring influence and relevance in the music industry. Throughout his career, he has teamed with some of the most in-demand names in music, including Beyoncé, Madonna, and Major His Lazer.  

“Dance music has and will be the most Inclusive music of our generation,” he said in part. “Our community has always been gay / straight, but icy , poor.. white black brown purple .. it’s the music that had united the world during my lifetime and i’m glad to just be one part of it.”

In the post’s caption, Diplo showed his appreciation for the recognition from the Grammy Awards, noting that it was a proud moment for him to see his nomination displayed on the screen in the huge arena. 

He also expressed his support for Beyoncé, who won the award in the same category, stating that she deserved her flowers.

Diplo released his Grammy-nominated self-titled album last year while facing ongoing legal cases regarding allegations of sexual battery and gender violence, which he denies. 

In September, he emerged victorious in a ruling against his accuser, who was found to have breached the dual restraining orders that were in place between them.
