Queen Bey breaks history again at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony. Last night while accepting the award for Best Rap Song with Houston native Megan Thee Stallion. She was interrupted by host Trevor Noah who shared some great news.
“We want everybody to know that right now Grammy history has been made,” Noah said, “because, with that award, Beyoncé has just tied the all-time record for most Grammy wins ever by a female artist and by any singer, male or female.”
Beyonce becomes the most awarded female artist in the history of the awards. She went in with nine nominations, the most of any artist in 2021, and left out with the magic number 28 for Best R&B Performance for her song “Black Parade.”
“Thank you, guys. As an artist, I believe it’s my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times,” she said. “I wanted to uplift and encourage all of the Black kings and queens who inspire me and inspire the whole world … I can’t believe this happened, it’s such a magical night.”
Blue Ivy Carter also made some history last night by accepting her first Grammy and being the second youngest person to win a music award for Best Music Video “Brown Skin Girl.”
“I know my daughter is watching; two daughters and my son are watching,” she said. “Blue, congratulations you won a Grammy tonight. I’m so proud. I love you so much, my rock.”
