Grammy 2021: Beyoncé Breaks Record and Becomes the Artist with the Highest Number of Grammy Wins Ever

Singer, Beyoncé made history on Sunday by becoming the female artist with the highest number of Grammy wins, with a record number of 28.

The 28th time is a charm! Such was true for the legendary hip hop queen, Beyoncé, who took home four wins at the Grammy Awards 2021.

She excelled in the Best Rap Performance and Best Rap song categories, for her performance in the remix of Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage.”

Beyoncé went on to snag a third win in the Best Music Video category, for her song collaboration with Wizkid and Saint Jhn, “Brown Skin Girl,” featuring Blue Ivy Carter.

However, the night’s tiebreaker was “Black Parade,” which earned the songstress a Grammy win in the Best R&B Performance category, bringing up her total wins to 28!

Queen Bey’s 28th Grammy win tied her with entertainment legend Quincy Jones, as the artist, male or female, with the most Grammy wins alive.

The duo falls behind late conductor Georg Stolti who holds the highest Grammy wins ever, with a record number of 31. While the “Black Parade” crooner still has Jones and Stolti’s records to contend with, she flawlessly surpassed the record in the female category.

Beyoncé beat previous record holder, Alison Krauss’s 27 wins, to become the female artist with the most Grammy wins ever. Thus, she set the new scoreline as the Grammy Awards most decorated female artist.

Winning four categories out of these nominations further cemented the icon’s place as Hollywood royalty

While accepting her gramophone for Best R&B Performance for “Black Parade,” Beyoncé expressed her excitement and disbelief over the “magical” night’s event. She also thanked everyone for their support, giving special nods to black kings and queens who inspire her daily.

Before leaving the stage, the legend gave a shoutout to her 9-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, who snagged her first-ever Grammy win for “Black Is King.”

Completing the family streak, Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, who co-wrote Savage, also took home a Grammy win in the Best Rap Song category, alongside Queen Bey and Stallion.

Beyoncé acknowledged her respect for Stallion, who in addition to her two wins for “Savage” remix, took home the Best New Artist award. She went on to tell the newest star on the block how honored she was to have featured in her song.

The legendary hip-hop queen first established her place as a force to reckon with at this year’s Grammys last November by earning nods in nine categories. Her nine nominations were the most held by any artist at the 63rd Grammy Awards.

Winning four categories out of these nominations further cemented the icon’s place as Hollywood royalty. She now boasts of an impressive 79 nominations for the prestigious award, second to her husband, Jay-Z who is tied with Quincy Jones with a total of 80 Grammy nods.

Achieving these feats at just 39 puts Beyonce in the ranks of legendary artists who reshaped the world with their music and record-breaking feats.
