Beyonce Becomes The Most Awarded Artist At Billboard Music Awards

Published: Sunday 21st May 2017 by Sam

Beyonce continues to rack up the accolades.

Ahead of this evening’s Billboard Music Awards, it has been revealed that Queen Bey has become the most awarded act at the coveted ceremony.

At the untelevised pre-show, the 36-year-old bagged five honors – a feat that saw her eclipse Taylor Swift as the most rewarded name in BBMA history.

For, Bey now has 11 awards with Destiny’s Child and 11 solo – totalling 22 (and besting Swift’s 21).

Her gongs from today are:

Top Female Artist (2017)

Top Touring Artist – The Formation World Tour (2017)

Top R&B Album – LEMONADE (2017)

Top R&B Tour – The Formation World Tour (2017)

Top R&B Artist (2017)

Needless to say, congratulations are in order for Mrs Carter.

Will she bring home more awards before the night is done or will she cede her most honored title to another act before the day is done? Stay tuned!

    Wait, how many does janet has. I thought she has 33!

    • Shady Gates May 21, 2017

      Nope Only 10 Sweetie… Sorry ?

      • Jeans May 21, 2017

        Janet has way more than 10 sweetie. Please check your facts before replying. K. Nice try though

      • Yandi May 21, 2017

        That’s a lie…. but ok… sh won 15 in one night…

      • SMH May 21, 2017

        Wrong. Janet won 11 between 1986-88 during the Control era, 15 in 1990, 3 in 1991, 1 in ’95, ’01, ’06 & ’08. Do your homework dear, and I don’t mean just Wikipedia either.

      • Truth May 22, 2017

        Janet has 33 she won 15 in one night get it together

    • YoFavsCouldNEVER May 21, 2017

      Nope 10 is correct. She won 8 in 1990 and 1 in 1995 another in 2001.

      • Jeans May 21, 2017

        Wikipedia is not correct. Please stop looking there lol

      • Its me guwrl May 22, 2017

        Kiss my a$$ bish! #Janetisqueen

      • Drew May 22, 2017

        Wikipedia is using Billboard itself as a source Lol. Taylor Swift has the most wins with 21. Janet has 10 and Beyoncé 11. Don’t lie to yourselves.

      • Derrick May 22, 2017

        Janet has won 33 awards, Mariah 31 and MJ 30. Those are facts. Billboard discontinued many categories and the affected their numbers. It is complete b*******!

      • VH May 23, 2017

        Actually 15 in 1 night!: 8 MAJOR award categories which were televised (Billboard awards) 7 untelevised (Billboard/Tanqueray Sterling award). 33 total throughout her career which include 2 achievement awards, and Whitney is next in line with 31… Billboard has “streamlined” their categories which now happen to “favor” white artists… Interesting that all Janet’s other award category wins no longer exist, so Billboard isn’t acknowledging them. But guess what, a Grammy winner is still a winner and an Oscar winner still an Oscar winner regardless of category changes

  2. TrellBeyLike May 21, 2017

    Most awarded at the BET Awards, VMA’s, Soul Train Awards, and Billboard Awards. 2nd most awarded woman at the Grammys. She isn’t done yet. Lol Beyoncé CONGRATULATIONS on all your success! This era has been so powerful and impactful!

    • YoFavsCouldNEVER May 21, 2017

      Can’t wait for her to snatch the Grammy’s Crown. The meltdowns to come LOL!

    • gina May 21, 2017

      you mean this era has been the most purchased. other artists have sold more & had more hits but she gets the awards? #PURCHASED

      • notabeystan May 21, 2017

        Don’t you think if she purchased awards she would’ve purchased AOTY, SOTY, and ROTY at the Grammys??????

  3. LiveYoLife2017 May 21, 2017

    They do Rihanna so wrong. Rih had 5 Top 5 Singles on Billboard, this year. A #1 Single On Billboard, Album is still on Billboard Top Album chart a year later, and she STILL has 2 singles on Billboard Hot 100 a whole year later! Bey is so overrated.

    • Rihboy May 21, 2017

      Yeah it’s rigged! She needs the limelight to add too the tumultuous boasting of her unborn! Clearly shows that they were t earned! But it’s ok because to this day billboard still shows whose album got more usage and spins.

    • Metzo May 21, 2017

      Beyonce had 12 songs enter the Hot 100 Simultaneously last year. She sold more singles than Rihanna in the U.S in 2016. In addition to that She sold more albums in the U.S. Way more. Hence why she beat Rihanna. BB awards are about numbers, Tours and chart entries; and in 2016, Beyonce had the upper hand over Right. Sorry not sorry.

      • Rihboy May 21, 2017

        Bogus! What singles outsold work? I’ll wait. All of those songs dropped within a week! The point is worked out lived everything on lemonade! Needed me, and love on the brain did as well. ITs rigged. Just leave it at that. Sorry not sorry. This ain’t about tours. It’s about longevity of Music on the chart she as well as numbers. None of beys entries thrived for more than two weeks.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler May 22, 2017

        Talking about longevity meanwhile Lemonade sold twice as much. Take away streams and Anti had sold near to nothing in comparison. Btw billboard does take tours into account. Hence the reason why she won best tour act ya big dummy

    • Pat May 21, 2017

      She pays for those awards and noone can tell me different! There is no way that forgotten about non-charting Lemonade album is winning these awards without throwing money out there!

      • Gift June 20, 2020

        Calm down! She isn’t as low as your thoughts and opinion

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler May 22, 2017

      You’re only overrated if your achievements outweigh your efforts. Tell me which other singer puts as much effort into their craft as Beyoncé. Fight me.
      Lemonade was the best selling 2016 release. The formation tour grossed over $230 mill and you honestly feel like Anti was more deserving ? Are you dumb ? * Remy Ma Voice*

      • Jamon May 22, 2017

        I feel Work deserved an award, but there was some big number hits this year, so I understand why she loss. I need to point out Beyonce did not have the top selling release of 2016, if she did wouldn’t billboard have given her the award of top 200 album over Drake? He had the biggest selling release of 2016, physical sales (by a few thousand) and streams.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler May 22, 2017

        No he did not. Lemonade is the best selling 2016 release Views comes in 2ND.

  4. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!!! May 21, 2017

    Taylor done it all by herself, and is younger.
    I can’t wait to buy Taylor new album!

    • Caleb May 21, 2017

      She is terrible, and the fact that she won AOTY twice at the Grammys proves that Grammys don’t mean s*** anymore.

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!!! May 21, 2017

        Eh. That’s your opinion. If you don’t like taylors music that’s fine, but clearly others do.
        The music industry awaits her new music!

  5. Lala May 21, 2017

    Yes b****!!!!!!

  6. I HATE BLACK and WHITE B****** May 21, 2017

    Congrats to bey and the artists she stole from….they never get a award

  7. DanYiel Iman May 21, 2017

    Beyoncé haters drive in droves to downplay her work & its crazy she’s s SANGER & the haters are doing exactly what they always do HATE!!✌??

  8. Rihboy May 21, 2017

    Drake is the most awarded tonight by the way.

  9. SMH May 21, 2017

    More fake news from camp beyonce. Janet is the most awarded by Billboard with 33, followed by Mariah with 31, then MJ with 30. Of course beyonces camp can sell these lies because they know her fans are too dumb to do their own research.

    • Stephy May 21, 2017

      Did they change the rules or something? Because they got Mariah at 14 and Janet at 10.

      • gina May 21, 2017

        wikipedia lies.

    • Jeans May 21, 2017

      THANK YOU!!! People on this board saying janet has 10! We both checked they asses!

  10. gina May 21, 2017

    she still out there buying awards. that’s why nobody takes awards shows seriously anymore. and she does not have more billboard awards than MJ, Janet and Mariah.

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler May 22, 2017

      Rhianna is out here purchasing her own plaques and album certifications . That’s why no-one takes Anti seriously. It’s been overshadowed by Lemonade at every award show thus far. Anti is a non event compared to the slayage that was Lemonade, the best selling release of 2016.

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler May 22, 2017

      Lemonade was the best selling release of 2016…
      You could triple the Anti tours earnings and Formation would still gross more. Rhianna didn’t deserve to win over Bey, not this era.

      • Jamon May 22, 2017

        Drake was the best selling release, that’s why he won top 200 billboard album.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler May 22, 2017

        No he did not

  11. Rihboy May 21, 2017

    Thank goodness drake won!

    • LadyEmpress8 May 21, 2017

      I’m not watching. Who did he win against?

  12. BHYISI May 21, 2017

    ?? Some of you are so pressed. Janet Jackson’s hasn’t won no damn 33 Billboard Awards. If she doesn’t have more than Whitney or Mariah how could she?
    If Beyonce was out here buying awards ,I’m sure she’d of brought herself an AOTY by now.
    Meanwhile Rihanna out here losing every award she’s nominated for. When you play dirty(Buying certifications) you never win.

    • Jeans May 21, 2017

      Um it’s a fact. Janet has 33. Check the facts.

  13. King B May 21, 2017

    When you have talent, you sweep relevant and irrelevant awards. Beyoncé will be the most awarded artist ever in the future thanks to vocal awards, visual, sales etc. None of her peers and past legends have done this. GRAMMY is based on quality. Billboard is based on sales. VMA is based on popularity. Do you think Janet and Madonna can win Grammy with their non existent vocals? Mariah, Whitney and Celine can win VMA? BEYONCÉ is the combination of all.

    • Jamon May 21, 2017

      I’m guessing you’re around 12. You’re putting

    • Jamon May 21, 2017

      I’m guessing you’re around 12. Putting down true legends, who’s talent and impact goes way beyond how many awards they have. No one cares about how many awards someone has, in the end it’s really about sales, which Beyonce can’t compare, since you said billboard is about sales. If Beyonce debuted in the 90’s and 80’s with the ladies you mentioned, do you honestly think she would have that many Grammys? Music today is so basic, to the point Taylor Swift has won AOTY twice (no shade to her). Whitney Houston is the most awarded artist, and this was when there was some serious competition.This is a completely different and f***** up decade. Theres no quality and no competition.

      • Lonnie May 22, 2017

        sis why you arguing with that stupid Beyonce stan from a third world country.They always talk down on legends just to make their fave seem superior they been doing the same with MJ. I like Beyonce but her stans annoy the s*** out of me

  14. Boosie May 22, 2017

    Accolades can’t take away from raw talent, and these lesser artists can have more of them than the greats, and the powers that he might try to fool us into thinking that this means that they are but the fact is that they’re not.
    Congrats on your latest award and the rest that’s yet to come but the classic music/voices live on and beyond them.

  15. Your Mother May 22, 2017

    Janet has 33 Billboard awards!!!! More than Bey and Destiny’s Child put together!!!!! Bey is not a Billboard darling!!!!

  16. JOHNVIDAL May 22, 2017

    Congrats to her. But if in fact this is TRUE (which I´m doubting judging by the comments), it is just ridiculous. Beyonce is obviously not the biggest Billboard queen ever to deserve being the artist with more Billboard awards ever. I don´t know if it is the lack of competition since music industry went to the pits or what is it… but all these awards have become ridiculous, including the grammys (Taylor Swift winning the big awards for awards supposedly for talent… come one!).

  17. Derrick May 22, 2017

    Fake New! Janet Jackson has 33! Billboard disconnected some of the categories and that affected Janet, MJ, and Mariah’s numbers. It’s a bunch of BS to me. Janet won 15 in one night, only 8 was televised.

  18. Mark Davidson May 23, 2017

    B******* Janet Jackson holds the record

  19. Nano May 24, 2017

    Queen Janet for most bbma awards!! All u others… go home!

  20. eclat June 6, 2017
