No seriously, we aren't worthy.
As Beyoncé ended her incredible, soul-snatching performance at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, her entire family stood by in the audience cheering her on.
There were nonstop congratulatory claps and beaming pride coming from her mother, Mama Tina Knowles Lawson, and daughter Blue Ivy Carter, but perhaps the most adorable and sweetest moment came from her adoring husband, Jay Z.
An accomplished Grammy winner in his own right, Jay stood by front row in the audience as his pregnant wife got all the viewers at home in formation and slayed the stage.
His facial expression, most importantly, said it all: Black love is alive and beautiful.
Over the years, Mr. and Mrs. Carter have hit the red carpet, sat front row at countless awards shows, shared onstage moments and allowed us into only some of their most private moments. Nonetheless, the gaze he places upon his wife as she glows is always glorious. In other words, it’s the definition of goals.
What we see from the notoriously private couple on both the biggest stages and even in their most intimate, is that Jay Z, a Black man from Brooklyn, isn’t afraid to be vulnerable, prideful and completely in awe of his wife.
We really aren’t worthy of the way Jay Z looks at Beyoncé but then again, we should all be taking note of it.
