Beyoncé has surpassed the record set by legendary musician Georg Solti for the most Grammy Awards wins. The award was given to the singer in four categories: Best Dance/Electronic Album, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best R&B Song. She now has a record of 32 Grammys, breaking Solti’s previous record of 31 Grammys.
Solti was nominated for 74 Grammys in addition to winning 31. He rose to prominence after being nominated for Best Choral Performance and Best Classical Album at the 41st Grammy Awards in 1999.
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, also known as Beyoncé, has been nominated for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance, and Best Song Written for Social Media. The majority of her nominations have been for her upcoming album, Renaissance, which is set to be released on July 29, 2022.
Following her victory, she delivered a speech in which she thanked her parents, husband, and three children, as well as the queer community for supporting her latest album. According to Beyoncé: “I’m trying not to get too emotional and just enjoy this night. I want to thank God for keeping me safe. I’d like to thank my uncle Johnny, who isn’t physically present but is present in spirit.”
