  • DJ Khaled, Beyoncé and Jay Z drop new single, ‘Shining,’ after the Grammys

They dropped a single with DJ Khaled immediately after the Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The track, featured on DJ Khaled’s upcoming album, “Grateful,” is called “Shining” and is available only on Tidal, Jay Z’s streaming music service. It’s the first new music from Beyoncé and Jay Z since “Drunk In Love,” in 2013.

Bey sings about her mega-success in the chorus: “All of this winnin’ I’ve been losin’ my mind, yeah / Oh, hold on, hold on, baby / Don’t try to / Slow me down.”

The lyrics may be about the winning streak, but the song was released after Beyoncé lost to Adele for album of the year.

Adele acknowledged Bey’s album “Lemonade” in her speech, calling it “monumental,” “beautiful” and “soul-baring.” Adele even broke her Grammy in half as a symbol that she wanted to share the award with Beyoncé.

Beyoncé didn’t walk away empty-handed. She won best music video, for “Formation,” and best urban contemporary album.
