It’s official: Beyonce has the most Grammy wins of all time. On Sunday night, she made history with four wins, bringing her career total to 32, reports ‘Variety’.
Her ‘Renaissance’ win for best dance/electronic album put her in the history books, after also winning best R&B song for ‘Cuff It’, best dance/electronic recording and traditional R&B performance.
Apart from Beyonce’s accomplishment, there were no sweeps that left any other winners guaranteed to make all the headlines. The top three all-genre categories went to three different winners — none of them the ones that were being widely prognosticated. Harry Styles picked up album of the year, Lizzo won record of the year and Bonnie Raitt got a truly unforeseen win for song of the year.
Besides album of the year, Styles won for pop vocal album; ‘Harry’s House’, which also won for best engineered album, non-classical, although that trophy does not go to Styles.
Other multiple winners included three trophies for Brandi Carlile and three for the music of ‘Encanto’. Raitt ended up with two, having won in an Americana category as well as best song. Other winners included Sam Smith and Kim Petras for pop duo/group performance for the single ‘Unholy’ and Willie Nelson for best country album.
