Beyoncé has broken the record for the most GRAMMY Awards held by a single artist.

During the 2023 GRAMMY Awards held on Sunday night, Beyoncé collected her 32nd trophy, making history as the most-awarded Grammy winner of all time.

Beyoncé was awarded Best Dance/ Electronic Recording for her single Break My Soul, and Best Dance/ Electronic Album for the lead’s record Renaissance. Her song Plastic Off The Sofa also received the award for Best Traditional R&B Performance.

“I’m trying not to be too emotional,” she revealed while accepting the prize, via BBC News. “I’m trying to just receive this night.”

Previously, Hungarian-British conductor George Solti held the record for the most Grammys earned, with 31 to his name. He had retained the title for 20 years before the Break My Soul singer took it at the latest awards ceremony.
