“I’ve seen Beyoncé from the very beginning of her career,” Wonder told Billboard backstage at California’s BottleRock Festival on Friday (May 27), and explained that he’s witnessed her music “mature”.
He continued: “Now we have ‘Lemonade’, which is to me a great art piece.”
The singer then went on to say that if he were to say anything to Beyoncé, he’d say, “Why don’t you get the words written in braille so that every single person can read the words?”
Watch the interview with Stevie Wonder below:
On July 10 Wonder is due to appear at Hyde Park for the only UK date of his ‘Songs In The Key of Life’ tour this year, which will now last at least 18 months.
Williams, who is generally considered a superstar in his own right, admitted that the chance to play with a figure as legendary as Wonder was an honour.
“Stevie Wonder was a fixture in my life as a child,” Williams said. “His music is probably the closest thing to auditory transcendence.”
