Beyonce makes Grammy Awards history

Beyonce made history at the Grammy Awards on Sunday by becoming the most awarded singer ever. The Crazy in Love superstar picked up four trophies at the prizegiving, including Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her Savage collaboration with fellow Texan Megan Thee Stallion, taking her career tally to 28. That ties her with music legend Quincy Jones and puts her three wins behind German conductor Georg Solti on the all-time Grammy wins list, but now Beyonce is the most awarded singer and female artist. Hitmaker Jimmy Jam announced the news as he presented the award for Best R&B Performance to Beyonce, stating: "History has just been made. Breaking the all-time record for the most Grammy wins ever by any female artist or any singer, male or female, the Grammy goes to Beyonce." The star took the mic and said: "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 and celebrate all of the beautiful black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world." Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy, was also a Grammy winner on Sunday - she picked up her first award when she was named among the visionaries behind her mother's Brown Skin Girl promo, which was named Best Music Video. Taylor Swift also made history by becoming the first female artist to win the Best Album award three times. She picked up her 11th overall Grammy on Sunday night for Folklore and thanked her boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn, for helping to inspire her through the COVID lockdown, calling him "the first person that I play every single song that I write", and adding, "I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine". Meanwhile, Megan Thee Stallion was a triple winner as she also picked up Best New Artist at the top of the televised part of the show and she appeared stunned when she realised she would be receiving the Best Rap Song award with her Savage collaborator Beyonce, as the two superstars took to the stage. The rapper giggled through her acceptance speech after the Crazy In Love singer initially left her speechless, thanking Beyonce and stating: "If you know me, you have to know that ever since I was little I was like, 'You know what, one day when I grow up I'm gonna be, like, the rap Beyonce'. That was definitely my goal." Holding back tears, she also thanked Beyonce's husband JAY-Z for "putting me on Roc Nation", adding: "My life has changed." There were double wins for Billie Eilish, Fiona Apple, Maria Schneider, Kaytranada, and late stars John Prine and Chick Corea, while the night's biggest honours went to Taylor Swift (Album of the Year), H.E.R (Song of the Year), and Eilish (Record of the Year).
