Beyoncé Breaks Record for Most GRAMMY Wins of All Time
Simply put, Beyoncé has established herself as the holy grail of music, reigning at the GRAMMY Awards. Queen Bey officially holds the record for the most GRAMMY wins in history, with 32 GRAMMYs over 88 nominations across her career.
The record-breaking moment occurred when Beyoncé won the award for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album, surpassing George Solti, who previously held the title. Prior to the evening ceremony, Beyoncé had tied her hip-hop legend husband JAY-Z as the most nominated artist in GRAMMY history. Beyoncé’s fourth GRAMMY of the night saw the indelible artist take home Best R&B Song for “Cuff It.” She was also awarded two GRAMMYs at the pre-show ceremony for Best Dance/Electronic recording for “Break My Soul” and “Plastic Off the Sofa” won for best traditional R&B performance.
In the historical moment, Beyoncé dedicated the award to the queer community as she has said time and time again that her album RENAISSANCE was made in tribute to Black and queer dance music — “I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing the genre.” Bonobo, Diplo, Odesza and Rüfüs du Sol were part of the beat work behind the album that has garnered Beyoncé to becoming the first Black woman to win in this dance album category and break a GRAMMY record.
