The Grammys have been targeted by some artists as not being transparent with how the awards are nominated and winners picked, but Beyonce’s new record shows they do recognize some of the top artists in the world.
Queen Bey won four prizes on Sunday night, including Best R&B Performance for “Black Parade”, Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl”, and Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her feature on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage”. With those wins, Beyoncé broke the record for the most Grammy wins by a woman, passing Alison Krauss, who previously held the record. She also ties Quincy Jones as the living person with the most Grammys with 28.
Her daughter, Blu Ivy, also received a Grammy to become the youngest artist ever to receive the highly coveted honor. Blu Ivy’s father also picked up GRAMMYS for being the songwriter for Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage remix” and Beyonce’s “Black Parade”.
