Just two weeks after entering GRAMMY history books for becoming the ceremony’s most awarded singer ever (as we reported here), Beyoncé boasts a similar achievement in the record books of the NAACP Image Awards.
Although the 52nd NAACP Image Awards won’t air live on BET until March 27 at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT (and simulcast CBS, BET Her, VH1, MTV, MTV2, and LOGO), the show’s non-televised awards have been announced all week.
With Friday (March 26) bringing the last unveiling of the non-televised trophies (click here to see the full list), it’s being reported Bey – who entered the night with 7 nominations – has upped her career total count to 22 trophies thanks to wins in the following 2021 categories: Outstanding Female Artist, Outstanding Music Video/Visual Album (‘Brown Skin Girl’), Outstanding Hip-Hop / Rap Song (‘Savage’ remix with Megan Thee Stallion), and Outstanding Duo, Group, or Collaboration (Contemporary) (‘Savage’ remix with Megan Thee Stallion).
The wins push her total past the previous recordholder, late Pop icon Whitney Houston, who reigned over the ceremony with a whopping 19 victories over her nearly 30-year career.
With the record breaking triumph in tow, Bey now boasts being the most awarded singer at the GRAMMYs, MTV VMAs, BET Awards, Soul Train Awards, and NAACP Image Awards.
