Beyoncé has won the 2023 Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for Renaissance over Bonobo (Fragments), Diplo (Diplo), Odesza (The Last Goodbye), and Rüfüs Du Sol (Surrender).
According to Pitchfork, it’s Beyoncé’s fourth win of the day, following triumphs for Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best R&B Song. “Thank you so much, I’m trying not to be too emotional. I’m trying to just receive this night,” Beyoncé said to open her acceptance speech. “I’d like to thank my Uncle Johnny, who’s not here, but he’s here in spirit. I’d like to thank my parents, my father, my mother, for loving me and pushing me. I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children who are at home watching. I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing this genre. God bless you and thank you so much to the Grammys.” Find the speech below.
She has now won 32 Grammys in her career, making her the winningest artist in Grammys history. (She is also tied with her husband, Jay-Z, for most nominations in Grammys history, with each Carter garnering 88 career nominations.)
Beyoncé was nominated in nine categories at this year’s Grammy Awards, picking up additional nods for Record of the Year (“Break My Soul”), Album of the Year (Renaissance), and Song of the Year (“Break My Soul”).
