Beyoncé’s artists, Chloe X Halle, received two awards for Outstanding Duo, Group, or Collaboration (Traditional). Their hit single, “Do It,” won the Outstanding Soul/R&B Song award. Ironically, Beyoncé’s “Black Parade” was nominated for the award as well.
During the night, Doja Cat was named Outstanding New Artist, and Drake took home Outstanding Male Artist. Jhene Aiko‘s Chilombo was awarded the Outstanding Album prize. Beyoncé’s NAACP success follows her breaking the record for having the most Grammy Award wins by a female artist.
About breaking the record, she said:
“I’m so honored. I’m so excited.”As an artist, I believe it’s my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times, and it’s been such a difficult time. So I wanted to uplift and encourage all of the Black queens and kings. I can’t believe this happened. It’s such a magical night.”
