Ice Spice added a unique twist to a famous Chance The Rapper lyric following an unforgettable encounter with Beyoncé at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

At the Los Angeles awards ceremony on Sunday (February 4), the Bronx rap star had a chance meeting with Queen Bey and JAY-Z in the audience. Wearing a fur-laced denim jacket and a matching skirt, Ice Spice beamed while exchanging pleasantries, shaking hands, and even engaging in conversation with Mr. and Mrs. Carter.

Post-show, the “Munch (Feelin’ U)” artist took to X (formerly Twitter) to express her excitement about the encounter, writing: “just met beyonce im never goin to fail.” This was a playful reference to a line from Chance The Rapper’s verse on Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam,” where he rapped: “I made ‘Sunday Candy,’ I’m never going to hell/ I met Kanye West, I’m never going to fail.” Chance’s lyric itself pays homage to Kanye’s line in “Otis” from 2011: “I made ‘Jesus Walks,’ I’m never going to hell.”

Despite the thrilling encounter with one of her idols, Ice Spice left the Grammys without any awards, having been nominated in four categories. The 24-year-old was up for Best New Artist (won by Victoria Monét), Best Rap Song (“Barbie World” with Nicki Minaj), Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Karma” with Taylor Swift), and Best Song Written for Visual Media (“Barbie World”).

While JAY-Z and Beyoncé were not nominated for major awards this year, JAY-Z was honored with the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award to celebrate his legendary career. During his acceptance speech, the Roc Nation mogul called out the Recording Academy for consistently overlooking his wife in the Album of the Year category.

“We want y’all to get it right,” he emphasized, standing with his 12-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. “She has more Grammys than everyone and never won Album of the Year!”

Beyoncé, holding the record for the most Grammy wins at 32, has been nominated for Album of the Year four times (I Am… Sasha Fierce in 2010, Beyoncé in 2015, Lemonade in 2017, and Renaissance in 2023) but has yet to secure the prestigious award.
