Trevor Noah, who will host the 2023 Grammy Awards, has a song that made his life after The Daily Show easier to transition into. Read on to find out why “Break My Soul” from the Renaissance album is the Beyoncé song that did it for him!
Trevor Noah’s Life After The Daily Show
As reported by ET Canada, Trevor Noah left his talk show in December 2022 after seven seasons. The standup comedian admitted that leaving the show allowed him to “have a little more time in soaking up the cities that [he is] visiting” and “to be present and explore”.
How “Break My Soul” Became Noah’s Life Soundtrack
Beyoncé’s hit track Break My Soul, which is nominated for Album of the Year, has a line in the lyrics that goes “I just quit my job/I’m gonna find a new drive”. The song references the need to “leave yer work” and “release the worry”, as well as the call to go look “for something that lives inside me”.
Trevor Noah has acknowledged, as noted by this article, that hosting The Daily Show was “incredibly enjoyable”, but he is also enjoying his newfound freedom and is “genuinely living [his] best life” by not having to stress out so much. The 38-year-old said he will now be able to appreciate the Grammy ceremony–which he will host for the third time–even more.
Is Beyoncé His Favorite Female Performer?
Trevor Noah teased during his interview for the PEOPLE Everyday Podcast that “one of your favorite performers is a woman, and that woman is going to be performing at the Grammys”, leading fans everywhere to speculate that Beyoncé is the performer he meant. Trevor Noah’s statement comes just in time as Beyoncé has been in the spotlight multiple times this year already, especially after announcing her upcoming world tour. Beyoncé has won several Grammy Awards previously, with her 2021 win in the Best R&B Performance category being one of her most memorable moments in the industry to date.
