Beyoncé ties the record for most Grammy Awards of all time

Beyoncé has tied the record for the most Grammy Awards of all time with 31, having won four awards in the 2023 proceedings. Three were handed out during the non-televised afternoon premiere ceremony, and she subsequently picked up one more during the prime-time broadcast of “Cuff It” for Best R&B Song.

She’ll break the all-time record if she wins just one more award during the broadcast, which would bring her tally to 32 — a definite possibility, given that the win for “Cuff It” left her with four more nominations to go. evening.

“Beyonce is on her way,” said host Trevor Noah, as the R&B Song award was presented without the honoree yet in attendance, half an hour into the broadcast. A joke about “CP time” rang out when it aired. Nile Rodgers, who was playing on the track, made a short speech in his absence.

The three awards announced for Beyoncé in the pre-broadcast proceedings were for Best Song Written for Visual Media for “Be Alive” (from the 2021 film “King Richard”), Best Dance/Electronic Recording for “Break My Soul” and best traditional music. R&B performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa” (the last two tracks on her “Renaissance” album).

He lost in two of the five categories he entered during the opening ceremony. Newcomer Muni Long prevailed in the best R&B performance category with her song “Hrs & Hrs,” beating out Beyoncé’s “Virgo’s Groove” in that category. And she was beaten in the category of Best Song Written for Visual Media, where she was nominated for XX, with “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from “Charm.”

The yet-to-be-decided awards that could take her to the top include record of the year, song of the year, album of the year and best dance album.

Prior to the 2023 Grammys, the record for most Grammy Awards was held by the 31 won by classical music figure Georg Solti, a benchmark set in 1997 when he won his final award, for Best Recording. of opera. Solti died that same year.

Beyonce led the 2023 nominations with nine, putting her in a tie for all-time Grammy nominations with her husband, Jay-Z: 88 each. Beyoncé’s account includes her work prior to her soloing as a member of Destiny’s Child. Prior to Sunday’s awards, she had won 28 Grammy Awards, already making her the most-awarded female artist in awards history.

Jay has won 24 Grammy Awards. He previously held the title with the most nominations, with 83 nominations before 2023.

This year marked Beyoncé’s first nominations in the dance/electronic categories, along with her R&B and general field nominations. Her release of “Renaissance” was featured in Best Dance/Electronic Album instead of competing for Best R&B Album.

Credited as the composer of “Renaissance,” Jay-Z is nominated alongside Beyoncé for album of the year and song of the year. His work on DJ Khaled’s “God Did” is also nominated for song of the year, rap song and rap performance.

If Jay-Z wins even one Grammy during the late-night broadcast, he’ll break a record himself, for the most wins of all time for a rapper. He came into the 2023 ceremony tied for that record with Kanye West, with 24 wins prior to this year.
