Beyoncé continues winning streak at 2023 Grammys
The singer continues to set new standards for Grammy wins between her albums and genre experiments.
Beyoncé isn’t just breaking records with the amount of Grammy nominations she’s getting. She’s also setting new standards for artists by winning a Grammy for every solo album she has ever released.
With her latest Grammy wins for various tracks off of her new album Renaissance, Beyoncé officially has won at least one Grammy for every solo album she’s ever released.
Her wins at the 65th annual Grammy Awards include Best Traditional R&B performance and Best Dance Electronic Recording so far.
Not only that, but with this 2023 win, she also becomes the second artist in history to win a Grammy in four distinct categories: dance, pop, R&B, and rap. The first was Mary J. Blige, who won in the fields: R&B, rap, gospel, and pop.
Beyoncé has a lengthy and successful history at The Grammy Awards. Beginning with her ‘Dangerously In Love’ album in 2003, Beyoncé won five Grammys that year and continued to win at least one Grammy for every solo album she has put out since.
Beyoncé's Grammy-winning history
After ‘Dangerously in Love’ Beyoncé released ‘B’Day’ in 2006, which brought home one win for Best Contemporary R&B album. Two years later her release of ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’ resulted in six Grammy Awards.
Her 2008 wins placed her as having the most Grammy award wins in one night for a female artist. This record was matched by Adele two years later.
In 2011, Beyoncé's ‘4′ won one Grammy, followed up by her self-titled album in 2013, which earned her another three Grammy Awards.
Three years later her album ‘Lemonade’ was awarded two Grammys. This year ‘Renaissance’, which earned nine nominations, has been awarded two Grammy wins so far with the ceremony having yet to be concluded.
Continuing to break records
Beyoncé also won a Grammy for her 2018 album with husband Jay-Z, titled ‘Everything is Love’, meaning every studio album she has released since 2003 has won at least one Grammy.
With the 65th annual Grammy Awards, Beyoncé surpasses Quincy Jones and becomes the second most decorated Grammy-winning with 30 wins total. Beyoncé breaks this record not more than halfway into the award ceremony, with several of her nominated categories still to be announced.
Beyoncé's next potential groundbreaking achievement would be becoming the most decorated Grammy Award winner of all time. To do so she would have to surpass Georg Solti’s 31 wins.
