The record for the most Grammy Awards won in a lifetime is held by Beyoncé, an American singer, songwriter, record producer and dancer, who has won 32. It was previously held by Georg Solti, a Hungarian-British conductor, who won 31.
But who previously held the record?
Bey made history at last night’s 65th Annual Grammy Awards by nabbing four new golden gramophones. In total, her Grammy wins now amount to 32—breaking the all-time record for the most-awarded musician in Grammys history.
“I’m trying not to be too emotional. I’m trying to just receive this night,” the singer said during her acceptance speech last night. “I want to thank God for protecting me. Thank you, God. I’d like to thank my Uncle Jonny, who’s not here, but he’s here in spirit.”
She also expressed her gratitude to the queer community, who heavily influenced her seventh studio album, Renaissance.
“I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing the genre,” she continued. “Thank you so much to the Grammys.”
Following close behind Bey is Georg Solti, the late Hungarian British conductor who previously held the title, and Quincy Jones.
