Beyoncé: Why She's Not Really Queen of the Grammys

BEYONCE GRAMMYS. Grammy-winning Beyoncé has become the most-awarded artist in history, but...

[Updated Feb 06, 2023 11:44 a.m.] Beyoncé is a queen, there's no denying it. The American singer became, this night at the Grammy Awards 2023, the most crowned artist of all time, in Los Angeles. Nominated in nine categories for her Renaissance album, Beyoncé picked up her 32nd career Grammy Award in Los Angeles, surpassing bandleader Georg Solti, the record holder for most Grammys won in a career so far. Flawless for Beyoncé? Not really.

For the fourth time in the history of the Grammy Awards, it was Harry Styles who took the trophy for album of the year against Beyoncé, for his hit album Harry's House. In 2017, with Lemonade, which had become a classic, she had already failed to obtain the prize for best album. And her track record does not (yet) allow Queen B to take her revenge on Adele, who had to settle for the best pop solo performance.

It should also be noted that Beyoncé's success in the other queen categories is not total: the recording of the year was won by Lizzo and About Damn Time and the song of the year was awarded to Just Like That, title of Bonnie Raitt. If Beyoncé still made a little more history with these Grammys 2023, with her nine nominations for this edition, she had still equaled the record of her husband, Jay-Z, as the most nominated artist of the year. history of these awards, or 88 nominations all the same.
