Beyoncé breaks grammy record for most wins
American singer, songwriter and dancer, Beyoncé has broken the record for most career wins at the Grammy Awards even as she was pipped to the post for the night’s top prizes, including the coveted Best Album, which was won by British singer Harry Styles.
Beyoncé claimed four Grammys, including the Best Dance/Electronic Album for Renaissance, bringing her career total to 32, surpassing the 31 prizes won by the late classical conductor Georg Solti.
“I am trying not to be too emotional. I am trying just to receive this night,” Beyonce said at the event on Sunday. “I want to thank God for protecting me. Thank you, God.”
The singer paid special tribute to the queer community, who she credited with inventing the genre she celebrated in her historically-layered record that pays homage to pioneers of funk, soul, rap, house and disco.
