Beyoncé (USA, b. Beyoncé Knowles) collected a total of 28 Grammy awards between 2001 and 2021. She won four trophies – Best R&B Performance (“BLACK PARADE”), Best Music Video (“BROWN SKIN GIRL”), Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance (both as featured artist on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage”) – at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, USA, on 14 March 2021 to take her one win clear of the bluegrass vocalist/fiddle player Alison Krauss, who won 27 Grammys between 1991 and 2012.


As of 2021, Beyoncé was tied in second place (with Quincy Jones) for the most Grammys won by an individual, with conductor/musical director Sir Georg Solti (UK, b. Hungary, 1912-97) still out in front with 31 Grammys won between 1963 and 1998.

Beyoncé won her first three Grammy awards with Destiny’s Child (2001-02) and claimed one with husband Jay-Z as The Carters (2019). Other highlights include five awards (from six nominations) in 2004 and six awards (from 10 nominations) in 2010. Her 10 nominations in 2010 matched Lauryn Hill’s 1999 record for the most nominations for a woman in a single year, and her six wins in 2010 set the record for the most wins by a woman in a single year – equalled by Adele in 2012.
