Carlos Santana landed in a soup after criticizing singer Beyonce Knowles. The legendary musician says his comment was taken out of context.

Following the Grammy Awards which saw Adele winning the most coveted Album of the Year, the guitarist praised the British star.

"I think Adele won because she can sing, sing," he said.

"With all respect to our sister Beyonce, Beyonce is very beautiful to look at and it's more like modelling kind of music - music to model a dress - she's not a singer singer, with all respect to her."

As he received a lot of backlash, Santana apologized on Facebook: "I would like to clarify a comment that was reported when I was doing an interview for some upcoming shows in Australia and New Zealand. My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammies. My comment about Beyonce was regretfully taken out of context."

Santana added that he has utmost respect for Beyonce as an artiste and a person.

"She deserves all the accolades that come her way. I wish Beyonce and her family all the best."
