Beyoncé has broken yet another record, becoming the most awarded woman in Grammy Awards history after taking home her 28th Grammy for Best R&B Performance at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony Sunday night!
Winning her history-making Grammy for her 2020 song “Black Parade,” Beyoncé is solidified in music history as also being the first Black woman to become the most Grammy awarded. Until this night bluegrass singer Alison Kraus held the title for being the most awarded woman in Grammy History, earning a total of 27 Grammys.
“As an artist, I believe it’s my job to reflect the times, and it’s been such a difficult time,” Mrs. Carter said during her acceptance speech. “So I wanted to uplift, encourage, celebrate all of the beautiful black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the world,” Beyoncé continued.
In honor of Beyoncé ’s win Michelle Obama took Twitter to express her congratulations.
“So amazed by @Beyonce and her record-breaking 28 #GRAMMYs wins! Congrats, Queen Bey—album after album, your music continues to define and elevate the moment, bringing us joy, soothing our pain, and filling our hearts with so, so much pride.”
As of now Beyoncé is tied with legendary producer Quincy Jones, equaling his total of 28 Grammys. Alongside making Grammy history, Beyoncé also was instrumental in helping rapper Megan Thee Stallion achieve Grammy history as well.
According to BBC, “Beyoncé was also part of another historic moment – when Megan Thee Stallion became the first female artist to win the best rap song award. The Houston musician picked up the prize for her breakout hit Savage (Remix), on which Beyoncé delivers a guest verse.”
Additionally, Beyoncé also won Best Rap Performance for the Savage remix, and Best Music Video for Brown Skin Girl, totaling in four Grammy wins for the night.
