Popular Pop queen Beyonce last night reigned supreme at the Grammys, smashing the all-time record for wins with her 32nd prize and fourth of the night to resounding applause.
While receiving the award, Beyonce thanked her family, and paid special tribute to the queer community, who she credited with inventing the genre she celebrated in her historically layered record that pays homage to pioneers of funk, soul, rap, house and disco.
Beyonce remains a powerhouse contender for the night’s major awards of album, record and song of the year — but the same goes for British balladeer Adele, whose introspective album “30” earned her seven nods.
The 2023 face-off has prompted obvious comparisons to 2017, when Adele swept the top prizes at the glitzy music biz gala, shutting out Queen Bey’s culture-shaking “Lemonade.
Despite breaking record after record, when it comes to the big three awards, Beyonce curiously remains something of an underdog in those categories.
She has never won Album of the Year honors and although she has the most Record of the Year nods with eight, she’s never won that prize either.
She only scored Song of the Year once, for 2008’s “Single Ladies.”
