Beyoncé Just Became The Most Awarded Artist In Grammy History

Beyoncé Just Became The Most Awarded Artist In Grammy History

"We can finally end the GOAT debate," host Trevor Noah said at last night's 65th Grammy Awards. “…This is not LeBron. Not Jordan. This is not Tom Brady. Not Messi. It's Beyoncé."

A little while ago, Beyoncé received the 32nd Grammy Award, making her the most awarded artist in the history of this prestigious award. This has officially surpassed the record of Hungarian-born British conductor George Salty, who died in 1997.

The superstar won four Golden Gramophones last night for his work on his seventh studio album, Renaissance . The debut album's number one single "Break My Soul" won Best Dance/Electronic Recording and "Plastic Off the Sofa" won Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance. "Cuff It" won Best R&B Song, TV.

The award Beyoncé won for Best Dance/Electronic Album went to Renaissance , a critically acclaimed dance music album inspired by the weird black club music of the '80s and '90s.

"I'm trying not to get too excited, I'm just trying to get through tonight," Beyoncé said in her speech. He credited his family, including his late uncle Johnny, with introducing him to house music and queer culture. "He's here in spirit," Beyoncé said.

"I would like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing this genre," he wrote.

Beyoncé has earned a record 88 nominations (she shares the record for the most Grammy nominations with husband Jay-Z). Since her first nomination in 2000, her notable wins include 2008's Single Ladies Song of the Year for Put on a Ring and 2019's Best Musical for Homecoming .

While Beyoncé is officially the most awarded person in Grammy history, she's also notorious for being snubbed in major categories. Ben Cesario of the New York Times writes that he was removed from those categories again last night. For example, "Album of the Year" went to Harry Styles, who received the award for his latest pop album "Harry's House" .

Beyoncé has never won album of the year. Beyoncé's self-titled album (2013) lost to Beck's Morning Phase and Lemonade (2016) to Adele's 25 .

Over the years, the Grammys have been repeatedly accused of racial discrimination, especially against black artists. In its 65 years, only 11 album of the year awards have been given to black artists, and only 3 of those have gone to black women: Natalie Cole in 1992, Whitney Houston in 1994, and Lauryn Hill in 1999.
