At the 2023 Grammy Awards, Beyoncé made history as the artist with the most Grammy wins of all time, surpassing the previous record with her 32nd award.
This win came for her album “Renaissance,” which was recognized for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
Beyoncé Accepts 32nd Grammy Award For ‘Best Dance/Electronic Album’
In her acceptance speech, Beyoncé thanked God, her late Uncle Johnny, her parents, her husband Jay Z and children, and the queer community “for your love and for inventing the genre.”
“I’m trying not to be too emotional and I’m trying to just receive this night,” she said, after breaking the record a little more than two hours into the main telecast. “I want to thank God for protecting me. … I’d like to thank my uncle Johnny, who’s not here, but he’s here in spirit.”
The singer thanked her parents, husband and three children before including her queer supporters.
“I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing this genre.”
Beyoncé Wins Grammy For “Cuff It” Before Breaking Record
Earlier, when Beyoncé won for “Cuff It” in her absence, jokes were made by the host Trevor Noah about her not being present yet, attributing it to L.A. traffic. The award for Best R&B Song was presented without Beyoncé in attendance, about 30 minutes into the telecast.
The-Dream, who co-wrote and co-produced the song, made a humorous comment about “CP time” at the podium, which was edited for broadcast. Nile Rodgers, who played on the track, also briefly spoke at the podium, uncensored.
