Taylor Swift has created history after becoming the first ever female artist to win the most Grammys for Album of the Year Award, and also becomes the ONLY artist to win the award in three different genres (country- fearless, pop- 1989, indie/folk- folklore)
The other nominees for the award were – Hollywoods’ Bleeding by Post Malone, Future Nostalgia by Dua Lipa, Women in Music PT. IIIby HAIM, DJesse VOL.3 by Jacob Collier, Everyday Life by Coldplay, Black Pumas (Deluxe Edition) by Black Pumas, and Chilombo by Jhené Aiko.
“We just want to thank the fans,” said Swift, who won the top prize with Folklore. She previously won album of the year with her albums Fearless and 1989.
Swift also performed at the Grammys, and sang two songs from her album Folklore and one song from Evermore: She started with “Cardigan” and “August” from Folklore and then sang “Willow” from Evermore. She was joined by the collaborators who helped her make the albums, Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner, who both won album of the year with Swift.
Along with Taylor, Beyonce also created history by becoming the first woman with the most Grammys awards, after winning her 28th Grammy for the Best Rap song for ‘Savage” with Megan Thee Stallion.
She also won the best R&B performance for “Black Parade,” best music video for “Brown Skin Girl” as well as best rap performance.
“As an artist I believe it’s my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect time and it’s been such a difficult time,” Beyonce said onstage as she won best R&B performance for “Black Parade,” which was released on Juneteenth.
She went on to say she created the song to honor the “beautiful Black kings and queens” in the world.
“I have been working my whole life … This is such a magical night.”, she added.
Beyonce is now tied with producer and multi-instrumentalist Quincy Jones for the second most Grammy wins. The late conductor Georg Solti is the most decorated Grammy winner with 31 wins.
