Grammys 2021: Beyoncé breaks bags the most wins

Beyoncé is now the holder of the record for most Grammy wins by a female artist and by any male or female singer. The star has picked up three awards at the Grammys 2021 ceremony tonight (March 14) – Best Music Video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’, Best R&B Performance for ‘Black Parade’, and Best Rap Performance for her remix of Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Savage’.

When she won Best R&B Performance, she officially broke the record, scoring her 28th victory. “I am so honoured, I’m so excited,” she said when accepting the award.

“Thank you guys. As an artist, I believe it’s my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times. It’s been such a difficult time so I wanted to uplift, encourage, celebrate the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world.

Beyoncé now has the same amount of Grammys as producer Quincy Jones. Only one person has more wins than her – the late conductor Georg Solti holds the record for the most Grammys victories with 31.

Beyoncé won her first three Grammys with Destiny’s Child, adding to her total with her first solo victories at the 2004 ceremony. She is also the most-nominated female artist in the awards show’s history with 62 nominations so far.
