Beyoncé Made Grammys History By Winning Her 28th Award, And Blue Ivy Carter Won One Too
Blue Ivy Carter is 9 years old and before yesterday, she was already an NAACP Award winner and a BET Soul Train Award winner. And last night, she became a Grammy winner. Not to be outshone by her own child, Beyoncé also took home a bunch of wins and became the most-awarded female artist and tied for the most-awarded living artist in Grammys history. And now Quincy Jones, who she’s tied with, better watch his back because the Beyhive is going to harass him into giving up a few of his Grammys so their God can take the record!
At the 2021 Grammys, Blue Ivy and her mom won for Best Music Video for Beyoncé’s Brown Skin Girl from her Black Is King visual album. Blue is in the video, so she got an award. Blue is not the youngest person to ever win a Grammy, that title belongs to Leah Peasall of The Peasall Sisters, who were credited on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, which won Album Of The Year in 2002 when Leah was 8 years old. Close, Blue! But don’t worry, she’ll probably be nominated and possibly win again next year since she narrated the audiobook version of Matthew A. Cherry‘s Oscar-winning short film, Hair Love. So expect a 2022 Best Spoken Word Album win from Blue.
Blue Ivy Carter’s mom also won Grammys for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for Savage with Megan Thee Stallion, and Best R&B Performance for her song Black Parade. Those wins earned Beyoncé a total of 28 Grammys. This made her the most-winning female artist at the Grammys ever. That record was previously held by Alison Krauss who has 27 wins. Now Beyoncé is tied for the second-most Grammy wins ever alongside 88-year-old legend, Quincy Jones. The most Grammy wins is 31, a title held by the late Hungarian-British conductor, Georg Solti.
Here’s Beyoncé winning a Grammy for Black Parade and making history:
I have to say Beyoncé is serving me such a look here that screams 80s vampire. The golden nails on her opera-length gloves? The leather mini-dress? And these 20-pound droplet earrings? How strong are homegirl’s ear lobes? I would be Dumbo by the end of the night.
A #GRAMYs night to remember. 🎶 @Beyonce makes history!

The good thing about those earrings is if she caught Jay-Z creeping on another, she could just swing really fast and knock him in the head so that he’ll know to behave while cameras are around. And I’m sure Beyoncé will win a few more Grammys next year and become the biggest Grammys winner of all-time. If not, I’m sure noted Beyhive member Adele will give Bey some of hers.
