Make way for the queen. Just an hour ago, Beyoncé broke another glass ceiling as she became the most-recognised female artist in Grammy history. With a total of 28 wins and 79 nominations, she is now tied with Quincy Jones as the artist with the second-most wins ever. The ultimate record to beat is conductor Georg Solti's 31 Grammys. Her 28th trophy is for her single, Black Parade, which won under the Best R&B Performance category.
Having graced the music scene with girl group Destiny's Child, the trio produced numerous hits like "Say My Name" and "Bills, Bills, Bills". In 2003, Beyoncé debuted a solo album entitled Dangerously In Love which topped the Billboard charts with the now-iconic hit, Crazy In Love.
Her subsequent albums including the eponymously-named Beyoncé, Lemonade, and the single Black Parade have been a move towards a social commentary on the issues facing the black community and representation thereof. Black Parade which came out during the onus of the Black Lives Matter movement has been praised for its insightful message and call to action.
