Beyoncé Sets Record For Most Grammy Wins
After winning the award for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album at the 2023 Grammys, Beyoncé became the most awarded artist in Grammys history.
Until Sunday, Beyoncé was sharing the all-time record for most Grammy wins with Hungarian classical conductor George Solti. Her win for Best Dance/Electronic Album for celebrated euphoric album “Renaissance” put her Grammy total at 32, the most of all time.
Beyoncé arrived at the stage for her acceptance speech to a standing ovation. After thanking God and her family, she highlighted a group that made a special impact on this record.
“I’d like to thank the queer community,” she smi led, crediting the early voices in the dance and electronic realm. She also thanked her late uncle Jonny, who helped make her stage outfits, and inspired Renaissance.
In host Trevor Noah’s eyes, the conversation about who is considered the GOAT to be over, Beyoncé’s legacy is far from finished.
Queen Bey also won Best Dance/Electronic Recording award for “Break My Soul”, Best Traditional R&B Performance award for “Plastic Off The Sofa” and Best R&B Song award for the joyful single “Cuff It”. But as she was late after getting stuck in downtown Los Angeles, the award for Best R&B Song was instead accepted on her behalf.
Beyoncé had already marked another record: tying her husband Jay-Z as the most nominated artists in Grammy history.
Despite becoming the most-crowned artist at the Grammys, Beyoncé lost the coveted album of the year award for the fourth time – this year to Harry Styles.
