Music megastar Beyoncé added a few more major milestones to her career portfolio Sunday night, becoming the all-time winningest artist in the history of the Grammy Awards.

Queen Bey won her 32nd Grammy when she became the first Black woman to win the Best Dance/Electronic Album during the live broadcast at the Arena in downtown Los Angeles.

Before the broadcast even started, Beyoncé moved out of the second place tie she shared with mega-producer Quincy Jones (as both had 28) as she picked up her 29th and 30th wins in Best Dance/Electronic Recording and Best Traditional R&B Performance for two songs from Renaissance.

Those pre-broadcast wins had put her just a win away from tying opera conductor Georg Solti. When she won for best R&B song earlier in the night for “Cuff It,” she put herself in a tie for the all-time most Grammy wins with 31. Now she is alone at the top. 

Perhaps becoming the all-time winner will take some of the sting out of losing in the Best Album category again, this time to Harry Styles.
