After winning the GRAMMY for the Best Dance/Electronic Music Album with her highly acclaimed RENAISSANCE album, Beyoncé has officially become the winningest artist in GRAMMY history with 33 GRAMMYs.
On the heels of her massive tour announcement, one which has two dates in Houston, Beyonce continues to prove her legend status. Last night, the iconic artist won her 33rd GRAMMY, unseating the previous GRAMMY record holder, Hungarian-British conductor, Sir Georg Solti.
“Thank you so much. I’m trying not to be too emotional, and I’m trying to just receive this night,” Beyoncé said in her acceptance speech.
“I wanna thank God for protecting me, thank you God. I’d like to thank my uncle Johnny, who’s not here, but he’s here in spirit. I’d like to thank my parents, my father, my mother, for loving me and pushing me. I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children who are at home watching. I’d like to thank the queer community for your love, and for inventing the genre. God bless you. Thank you so much to the Grammys, thank you.”
In total, Beyoncé secured three GRAMMYs last night: the Best Dance/Electronic record, one for best RNB song, Cuff It, and Best Dance/Electronic Recording for Break My Soul.
Ahead of the award ceremony, Beyoncé tied with husband, Jay-Z, as the two most nominated artists in GRAMMY history.
Beyoncé was also nominated for the Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year, but lost to Harry Styles, Lizzo, and Bonnie Raitt, respectively.
The GRAMMYs might not have a spotless record, but Beyoncé being the winningest artist in GRAMMY history indicates that the organization is doing something right.
