Beyoncé has set a Grammy record , becoming the first female artist to win 28 awards.
“I am so honoured, I’m so excited,” she said as she accepted her trophy for Best R&B Performance. Her win pushed her ahead of the previous record holder, the country singer Alison Krauss.
Taylor Swift’s lockdown album FOLKLORE produced her third win of the Album Of The Year award, making her the first female artist to achieve that feat, only Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and Frank Sinatra have managed it before. She previously won with FEARLESS in 2010 and 1989 in 2016.
Beyoncé’s 28th Grammy was presented in honour of Black Parade, a celebration of black power and resilience, which she released last year.
Commenting on her win Beyoncé said,
“As an artist, I believe it’s my job to reflect the times, and it’s been such a difficult time, so I wanted to uplift, encourage, celebrate all of the beautiful black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the world”.
The star has now equalled super-producer Qunicy Jones’ total of 28 Grammys. Only classical conductor Sir Georg Solti has more, with 31.
