With her 28th win, Beyoncé has become the most-awarded female artist in the 63 year history of the Grammy Awards.
Beyoncé, who received nine nominations in the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, won four of them to surpass Alison Krauss to become the most-awarded woman in the show’s history and tie Quincy Jones as the artists with the second-most wins.
Beyoncé and her 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter won the best music video award for the single “Brown Skin Girl.”
She also won the award for best R & B performance for “Black Parade,” a song to reflect the Black Lives Matter movement. Accepting the award, Beyoncé said, “As an artist, I believe it’s my job to reflect the times, and it’s been such a difficult time.”
“So I wanted to uplift, encourage, celebrate all of the beautiful black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the world,” she added.
Beyoncé and her fellow Houston native Megan Thee Stallion won the Grammy for best rap performance for the remix of the latter’s “Savage.” Queen Bey also shared the award for best rap song for the same tune.
Overwhelmed by the achievement, Beyoncé said, “I’ve been working my whole life, since 9 years old, and I can’t believe this happened.”
