The 65th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, hosted Sunday night (Feb. 5), saw the megastar break the record for most Grammy wins after being awarded Best Dance / Electronic Music Album for her album Renaissance.

The accolade was her fourth win of the night – alongside Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best R&B Song, and Best Dance/Electronic Recording – with Record, Song, and Album of the Year still up for grabs.”

“This is an honor,” said James Corden said as he announced the winner. “Because we are witnessing history tonight. Breaking the record for the most Grammy wins of all time, the outstanding, and show your respect, it’s Renaissance, Beyoncé.”

Beyoncé then took the stage to accept her historic win. “Thank you so much. I’m trying not to be too emotional. I’m trying to just receive this night,” she said holding back tears. “I want to thank God for protecting me. Thank you, God. I’d like to thank my Uncle Johny who is not here. But he’s here in spirit.” Beyoncé went on to thank her family, including her parents, her husband, and her children, and then thanked the queer community for their “love and for inventing this genre. God Bless you, and thank you so much to the Grammys.”

Beyoncé’s seventh studio album, Renaissance, dropped last July and has since stunned critics and fans alike. As 2022 came to a close, the album garnered numerous award show wins, including Favorite R&B Album at the American Music Awards and Album of the Year at the Soul Train Music Awards. It is the most nominated album at this year’s Grammys ceremony.

The star recently put on her first concert since 2018, performing in Dubai where she brought up her 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, onstage. Shortly after, Queen B announced a 2023 Renaissance world tour, her first solo trek since 2016.

Beyoncé’s globetrotting tour will kick off in Stockholm, Sweden, on May 10. She will tour Europe and the United Kingdom through the early summer and, by July, return to the States. The tour will come to a close on September 27 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The singer has already doubled up some of her North American dates due to high demand.
