8/13/20 O&A NYC THROWBACK THURSDAY: Prince and Beyoncé perform Prince Medley (2004 Grammy Awards)

Beyoncé had a very good Feb. 8, 2004. She won five out of the six Grammy awards for which she’d been nominated, including Best R&B Song with “Crazy In Love” — and she spent five spirited minutes performing with Prince.

According to Grammys executive producer Ken Erlich, Prince had been asking Beyoncé to work with him in some capacity, and her manager (her father Matthew Knowles) suggested the ceremony as a possible performance venue. After some negotiations, all parties agreed to go for it, and Prince wrote the arrangement within a day.
