They don't call her Queen Bey for nothing.

Beyoncé made history during tonight's 2021 Grammy Awards by breaking the record for most wins of any female artist and most wins for any singer male or female in Grammys history.

Before tonight (March 14, 2020), country singer Alison Krauss held the record for most-awarded female artist with 27 wins. Bey took home four trophies, bringing her total up to 28 tying her with legendary music producer and instrumentalist Quincy Jones. The most awarded person in Grammys history is late conductor Georg Solti with 31.

Among tonight's accolades, Bey took home wins for Best R&B Performance for "Black Parade," Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her "Savage" remix with Megan Thee Stallion and Best Music Video for "Brown Skin Girl." 

Bey lost Best R&B song to H.E.R. & Meshell Ndegeocello's "Better Than I Imagined" and Record of the Year for "Black Parade" to Billie Eilish's "All I Ever Wanted."

Bey and Jay-Z's 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter also made history tonight as one of the youngest Grammy winners in history. The talented mother-daughter duo won Best Music Video for "Brown Skin Girl." The hit track also features SAINt JHN and WizKid.


Bey was the most nominated artist of the night with nine noms. She was visibly shocked when she made Grammys history for her Best R&B performance win.

Another fascinating fact: Beyoncé has garnered a whopping 79 Grammys nominations throughout her impressive career, making her the most nominated female artist of all time.

Bow down, indeed.
