Making waves yet again is none other than Beyoncé, who recently made history at the 63rd Grammy Awards after earning her 28th win, making her the show’s most-decorated female history, ‘I can’t believe this happened – it’s such a magical night’, she said in her acceptance speech.

This means that Queen B beat Alison Krauss’ previously held record of 27 wins and is now tied with Quincy Jones for the second-most Grammy wins. Meanwhile, conductor Georg Stolti holds the record with 31 Grammys.
While accepting the award for best R&B performance for ‘Black Parade’, Beyoncé said she was ‘honoured’ and ‘so excited’ to recieve her 28th award.
She continued, ‘Thank you guys. As an artist, I believe it’s my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times. I wanted to uplift and encourage all of the Black kings and queens who inspire me and inspire the whole world … I can’t believe this happened, it’s such a magical night.’
Her 9-year-old daughter, Blue, also took home her first Grammy for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ with her mum, as well as her 3-year-old twins Rumi and Sir, all of which she shares with husband Jay-Z.
