Beyonce made history for Most Grammy Award Wins Of Any Female Artist. The ‘Formation’ singer won four Grammys on Sunday (Mar. 14) while receiving ten nominations. Bey thanked her husband, Jay-Z, and kids – Blue, Sir, and Rumi – on her historical night.
“I’m so honored. I’m so excited,” Beyonce said during her acceptance speech. “As an artist, I believe it’s my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times and it’s been such a difficult time,” the recording artist shared. “So I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world. This is so overwhelming.”
Bey reflected on her oldest daughter, Blue, who won a Grammy Award for her work on the music video for ‘BROWN SKIN GIRL.’
“I know my daughter is watching,” the celebrity mom told attendees. “Two daughters and my son, they’re all watching,” Bey added. “Blue, congratulations. She won a Grammy tonight. I’m so proud of you and I’m so honored to be your mommy, all of your mommy’s. Y’all are my babies, and I’m so proud of y’all. I love you so much, my rock.”
Beyonce released her latest track, ‘Black Parade,’ last year. The song, which paid tribute to the Black Experience and struggles for justice in the United States, received the R&B Performance Award at the Grammys last night.
‘Black Parade’ came just in time for Juneteenth last year. “Happy Juneteenth Weekend,” Bey exclaimed on Instagram upon releasing her new song. “I hope we continue to share joy and celebrate each other, even in the midst of struggle,” the recording artist said.
“Please continue to remember our beauty, strength, and power,” Bey continued. “Being Black is your activism. Black excellence is a form of protest. Black joy is your right.”
