A Look At The Beyoncé Grammy Award History
The 64th Grammy Awards will took place on Sunday, and surprisingly, Beyoncé does not have a single Grammy nomination this year. This is the first time in six years that the “Crazy in Love” singer will go unannounced on Grammy Awards night.
The star currently has 28 Grammy Award wins to her name, which is only three awards away from reaching Georg Solti’s all-time record of 31. Although she won’t be adding a Grammy Award to her tally this year, Bey remains one of the biggest pop stars in the world.
She is hardly a stranger to the prestigious award, having been first nominated in 2001 when she was just 19 years old. Beyoncé went on to win two awards that night, alongside her group Destiny’s Child. They won Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for the song “Say My Name.”
By 2004, Destiny’s Child had won another two more Grammys: Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for “Survivor” and “The Closer I Get to You.”
She left the girl group eventually, but she continued to gain nominations and win Grammys. As of last year, the Beyoncé Grammy Awards history includes being nominated for 79 awards, and her 28 wins mean she has won more than one award with every three nominations.
Beyoncé notably won Best Contemporary R&B Album for Dangerously in Love and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for “Dangerously in Love 2.” She also has Grammy wins with her husband Jay-Z: Best R&B Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Crazy in Love”.
In 2021, Beyoncé won four Grammys, all in different categories and with different songs as well. She won Best R&B Performance for “Black Parade,” Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “Savage” (remix by Megan Thee Stallion featuring Beyoncé,) and Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl” (by Beyoncé, Saint Jhn and Wizkid featuring Blue Ivy Carter.)
“Brown Skin Girl” also marked the first win for Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter, who was just nine years old at the time.
