Beyoncé may have entered the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards as the night’s most nominated act, but she’s leaving it as the most-awarded singer in history.
Already the most nominated female act in GRAMMY history (with 79 nods), Bey began GRAMMY night 2021 with 24 trophies to her name – making her just 4 wins shy of becoming the award show’s most decorated female act (second only to Country legend Alison Krauss).
After an early win in the ‘Best Music Video’ category for her inspirational ‘Brown Skin Girl’ visual (click here to read more), Bey collected an additional three trophies in Best Rap Song (for ‘Savage’), Best Rap Performance (for ‘Savage’), and Best R&B Performance (for ‘Black Parade’) categories over the night.
The new golden gramophones make her the most GRAMMY-awarded singer in history. Now tied with legendary super-producer Quincy Jones at 28 wins, only the late composer Georg Solti has more (31 wins).
