The 63rd edition of the Grammys- the most elite awards when it comes to the music industry took place not 12 hours ago and netizens are going gaga over it. “Who runs the world: Girls!” Well, Beyonce surely said it right a few years ago and the singer has now set a historic record with Grammys. After winning big in Grammys 2021, Queen Bey now has 28 Grammys in total surpassing the record held by singer Alison Krauss to become the female artist with most trophies awards by the Recording Academy. What’s interesting is that the three big awards of the evening went to women. Billie Eilish won Record of the Year for Everything I Wanted, H.E.R. won Song of the Year for I Can’t Breathe and Taylor Swift was awarded with Album of the Year for her latest album Folkore. Also, Swift became the first woman to receive Album of the Year award.

What is even more interesting is that Megan Thee Stallion emerged as the biggest winner as she took home three Grammys on Sunday. She won awards for Best Rap Song, Best New Artist, and Best Rap Performance for Savage and was praised by many.
