Beyoncé is living out the vocation of her Queen Bey moniker, becoming the most decorated singer in Grammys history.
The singer picked up four awards at the 63rd Grammy Awards, including best rap song and best rap performance for “Savage (Remix) with Megan Thee Stallion; best R&B performance for “Black Parade; and best music video for “Brown Skin Girl, a win she shares with her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, who became the second-youngest Grammy winner in history.
“As an artist I believe it’s my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect time and it’s been such a difficult time,” Beyoncé said as she accepted her win for “Black Parade.” “I have been working my whole life … This is such a magical night.”
Her wins on Sunday put her total wins at 28, the most for any singer in The Recording Academy’s history. She is also the most decorated female Grammy winner, tying with producer Quincy Jones for second place.
The late composer George Solti is the most decorated person at the Grammys with 31 wins, according to The Associated Press.
Despite making history, Beyoncé has never won the coveted album of the year. She was last nominated in that category in 2017 for her culture-shifting visual album “Lemonade.”
Ladies ruled the night, winning in the four major categories.
Megan Thee Stallion won best new artist, H.E.R won best song for “I Can’t Breathe,” Billie Eilish for record of the year for “Everything I Wanted,” and Taylor Swift won album of the year for “Folklore,” becoming the first woman to win album of the year three times.
