Queen Bey did not show up to the Grammy’s to play! Gracing the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards beautifully draped in all black, she made Grammy history by accepting her 28th Grammy. Beyoncé was nominated for 9 awards and she won 4 of them. She is now the Grammy Awards most-decorated female artist, receiving more lifetime awards than any woman.
Beyoncé took home two of her awards for her contributions in Megan Thee Stallion’s, “Savage remix.” The song won in best rap song and best rap performance category. Beyoncé also shared an award for best music video with her beautiful 9-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, making Blue the second youngest to win a Grammy. Blue won as a collaborator on the song, “Brown Skin Girl.”
Taking the cake, Beyoncé won in best R&B performance category for her song, “Black Parade.” She released, “Black Parade,” in 2020 in honor of Juneteenth. Juneteenth also known as Freedom Day, is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the U.S.
Queen Bey gracefully accepted the award for “Black Parade,” with a beautiful and simple acceptance speech where she said,
“As an artist, I believe it’s my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect the times. It’s been such a difficult time, so I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all the beautiful black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world.”
She continued with a sweet message directed specifically to her daughter Blue and the rest of her family stating,
“Blue, congratulations, you won a Grammy tonight, I am so proud of you and I am so honored to be your mommy, all of your mommy’s … and I’m so proud of ya’ll, I love you so much my rock.”
