The GRAMMY Goat celebrated her historic milestone of becoming the most decorated artist of all time with her husband Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, Lizzo, Chris Martin, and more. Adding to the excitement, Beyoncé also dropped her highly anticipated “Cuff It (Wetter Remix)” on all streaming platforms. Go inside the post-Grammy bash, listen to the “Wetter Remix,” and tell us your thoughts on Bey never winning Album of the Year inside…
Beyoncé made history at the 2023 Grammy Awards by winning her 32nd award, breaking the record for the most Grammy wins of all time!
Having won four awards during the 2023 ceremony, the win that pushed her past the all-time record was for her chart-topping album, Renaissance, which won Best Dance/Electronic Album. Not only did the win make her a living legend, it also made her the first Black woman to win in the Best Dance/Electronic Album category. Woot!

Mrs. Carter also won a Grammy for Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa,” Best R&B Song for “Cuff It,” and Best Dance Recording for “Break My Soul.”
To commemorate this momentous occasion, Beyoncé threw an extravagant party, surrounded by friends and fellow music heavyweights, including her husband Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, Lizzo, Chris Martin, her mom Tina Knowles Lawson, and many more. The GRAMMY Goat looked like perfection in custom Schiaparelli haute couture that featured a black mirror corset, silk velvet column skirt, and black velvet gloves.

In recent years, the Grammy Awards, one of the most prestigious music awards in the world, have been the center of controversy and conspiracy theories.
One such conspiracy is that Beyoncé, despite being one of the biggest music artists of our time, has been consistently losing in the top GRAMMY categories.

Yes, she’s the most decorated artist of all time. However, fans and critics alike have noticed that despite being a dominant force in the music industry, she has consistently lost in the top categories, such as Album of the Year and Song of the Year, to other artists.
During the 2023 Grammys, Bey lost the award for Album of the Year to Harry’s House, by Harry Styles, which caused all hell to break loose on social media.
It was her fourth AOTY loss at the Grammys, and her 15th in one of the ceremony’s top categories of Album, Record, and Song of the Year. Only one of Bey’s 32 Grammys over the last two decades has been a major award: Song of the Year, which she won in 2010 as a writer of “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” The rest have come in genres such as R&B Song and Urban Contemporary Album.
Only three Black women have won Album of the Year at the Grammys: Natalie Cole, Whitney Houston, and Lauryn Hill. Unfortunately, Beyoncé has yet to join their ranks.
Conversations with voters centered on the night’s top four categories: Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Album of the Year.
A “Grammy-winning producer-engineer who has been a voter for nearly 20 years” explained their choices. They claimed they voted for Lizzo in the Record of the Year category because of her influence. They also appeared to be tired of Bey always coming out on top.

when those anonymous grammy voter quotes came out i knew…someone said they weren’t voting for beyoncé because she has enough like…boo

I read some of the anonymous voters comments and one voter described her rollouts as portentous. America has this odd fascination with wanting to humble Black women. And if that’s what it takes for Beyonce to with a lil AOTY Grammy, I hope she never wins. https://t.co/HJG3JsFrFV

It’s so blatant they don’t respect her and her artistry

And we wonder why? Take a wild guess in the comments.
Notably absent from the Grammy festivities was Beyoncé’s sister Solange Knowles.
