The United States Music Superstar, Beyonce Giselle Knowles has become the most Grammy wins with 28 awards, now stands as the most decorated female artist in the history of the Grammys. Beyonce secured the record on Sunday, after winning Best R&B Song for her hit “Black Parade,” a single celebrating Black culture and activism dropped in the wake of mass protests ignited by the death of George Floyd in police custody in the summer of 2020.

Managing to cause all sorts of conversation without even performing at the 63rd annual ceremony Sunday night, the music superstar led the pack heading into the evening with nine nods, extending her reign as the most nominated female artist of all time. The singer, who made a surprise showing at the gala which she has skipped for past several years, said “I am so honored. I’m so excited. Thank you, As an artist I believe it’s my job and all of our jobs to reflect our times.

“So I wanted to uplift, encourage, celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world,” she continued, wearing a curve-hugging black leather mini dress. “It’s such a magical night, thank you so much,” Beyonce said, adding her gratitude to her children — after the eldest, Blue Ivy, won her first Grammy for her appearance in the music video “Brown Skin Girl.”

“I’m so honored to be your mommy, all of your mommies. Y’all are my babies. And I’m so proud of y’all. I love you so much, my rock,” she said, nodding to her husband, rapper Jay-Z. Despite not releasing a new album over the past year, Beyoncé dominated across various categories thanks to her single “Black Parade,” which was up for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song.

She is the Grammy’s most nominated female artist ever with 79, tied with Paul McCartney as the second most nominated act and only one behind husband Jay-Z and industry legend Quincy Jones.

Prior to 2021, the megastar boasted 24 Grammy wins to her name — but notoriously lost Album of the Year in 2017 to British balladeer Adele, a controversial snub often cited as an example of the Recording Academy’s diversity issues.
