It is nothing short of iconic from Beyoncé Knowles, who has set a new record with her twenty-eighth win at the annual Grammy Awards.


It was a big night at the Grammys for the musical artist Beyoncé, who is now the most decorated woman artist in Grammy history.

On one of the biggest nights for music, Knowles was not the only woman artist to make history. Taylor Swift also made her mark in the books, becoming the first woman to win the album of the year three times.

The occasion saw Queen Bey bag herself several awards, including best R&B performance for "Black Parade," the best music video for "Brown Skin Girl," which also saw Blue Ivy win her first Grammy and become the second-youngest Grammy winner ever.


Beyoncé also accepted an award's best rap performance and best rap song for her collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion on the hit song, "Savage."

Her success on the night ties her with the music producer legend Quincy Jones who also had twenty-eight Grammys. The only other artist with more Grammys is Hungarian classical conductor Sir Georg Solti, who has thirty-one.

"As an artist I believe it's my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect time 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".

Knowles said when accepting the award for "Black Parade."

Among those making history was "Willow" singer Taylor Swift, who scooped the award for her album "Folklore." She swiftly adds that to her collection of "best album of the year," having won for "Fearless" in 2010 and "1989" in 2016.

Among the main winners on the night include Billie Eilish accepting the award for record of the year for "Everything I Wanted." Song of the year was awarded to H.E.R for "I Can't Breath." A title that quotes the final words of George Floyd.
