Beyonce, the queen of pop, dominated the Grammy Awards, setting a new record for victories with her four awards of the evening and 32nd overall. The release of "Renaissance," the 41-year old's rich ode to club music, gave her nine chances to win a Grammy for best dance album.
She claimed the distinction by defeating the late classical conductor Georg Solti, who had 31 Grammys, by winning the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album with her big hit "Renaissance."
Beyonce expressed gratitude to her family and paid particular appreciation to the LGBTQ community, whom she credited with creating the genre that is recognised in her historically rich album, which also honors the forefathers of funk, soul, rap, house, and disco.
Harry Styles' "Harry's House" took up the Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album awards. Record of the Year went to Lizzo's song "About That Time." The Best Music Video award went to Taylor Swift's "All Too Well: The Short Film," and the Best Rap Album award went to Kendrick Lamar's "Mr Morale & the Big Steppers."
