Beyoncé has officially tied the most wins in Grammys history.

Beyoncé has officially tied for the most wins in Grammys history after her success at the awards ceremony on Sunday night. Her track “Cuff It" notched her a win for Best R&B Song, while “Break My Soul” helped her win Best Dance/Electronic Recording. Additionally, she won Best Traditional R&B Performance with “Plastic Off the Sofa.”

Despite the historic performance, Beyoncé was unable to accept the awards in person. She was reportedly 45 minutes late to the ceremony while stuck in L.A. traffic. "Beyoncé is on her way. The upside of hosting the Grammys in L.A. is that everyone can be here. The downside of hosting the Grammys in L.A. is the traffic," host Trevor Noah joked. "Beyoncé is on her way."

All-in-all, Beyoncé received nominations in nine categories at this year’s Grammy Awards. She is also up for Record of the Year (“Break My Soul”), Album of the Year (Renaissance), Song of the Year (“Break My Soul”), and Best Dance/Electronic Music Album (Renaissance). Elsewhere in the night, Viola Davis achieved EGOT status for her work on the audiobook for her memoir, Finding Me. Kendrick Lamar also took home several awards.

Beyoncé released Renaissance back in July 2022, over six years following her previous solo studio album, Lemonade. The album featured collaborations with Nova Wav, The-Dream, Symbolyc One, A. G. Cook, Honey Dijon, Beam, Tricky Stewart, BloodPop, Skrillex, Hit-Boy, No I.D., and more. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, with 332,000 album-equivalent units.

Later this year, Beyoncé will be embarking on her “Renaissance World Tour 2023." For the shows, she'll be stopping in Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Washington D.C., and many more cities across the globe. Revisit Beyoncé's "Break My Soul" below.
