With her 32nd Grammy, Beyoncé breaks the record for most wins at the Grammys. On Sunday, Beyoncé won the most awards of her career.
Following the release of her rich, multilayered ode to club music, “Renaissance,” the 41-year-old singer had the most opportunities to win a Grammy with nine at the start of the day.
She beat the late classical conductor Georg Solti, who had 31 awards, to the title by winning the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for her smash hit “Renaissance.”
”I’m trying to keep my emotions to a minimum. And I’m trying to just accept this night,” Queen Bey said as her peers witnessed the historic moment. She was wearing a gown that hugged her curves and was shimmering. Her hair was in mermaid waves.
Beyoncé thanked her family and paid special tribute to the queer community, which she said was responsible for inventing the genre she honored in her historically layered record that pays tribute to pioneers of funk, soul, rap, house, and disco.
Beyoncé is still a strong contender for album, record, and song of the year on the night. The same is true for British balladeer Adele, whose contemplative album “30” received seven nominations.
The contest in 2023 has sparked obvious comparisons to 2017, when Adle defeated Queen Bey’s “Lemonade” to win the glittering music industry gala.
Beyoncé continues, curiously, to be somewhat of an underdog in the big three awards, despite breaking record after record.
He has never won Album of the Year, and she has eight nominations for Record of the Year, but she has never won that award either.
She won Song of the Year only once, for “Single Ladies,” in 2008.
