Beyonce won four Grammy Awards and broke a long-standing record to become the most decorated female artist in history when she won her 28th Grammy for best R&B performance for “Black Parade.” She currently sits in second place, tied with Quincy Jones, on the list of most-decorated artists — woman or man. The win came right on the heels of her 27th win for best rap song for her “Savage (Remix)” collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, which is when Grammys host Trevor Noah announced that Beyoncé had tied with Alison Krauss for the honor.
“As an artist, I believe it’s my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect the times, and it’s been such a difficult time. I wanted to uplift, encourage, and celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and the whole world,” the singer said while accepting her win. “This is so overwhelming. I’ve been working my whole life, since I was 9 years old, and I can’t believe this happened. This is such a magical night.”
Although we do not doubt that Beyoncé’s record-breaking win will always have a special place in her heart, we’re pretty sure there was one other win she probably treasures a little more — her win for best music video for “Brown Skin Girl,” because she worked with her daughter Blue Ivy to create it. Its win actually gave Blue Ivy’s a Grammy Award too!
