Beyoncé has made history by becoming the most decorated female Grammy winner ever after picking up her 28th award in the socially-distanced LA ceremony.

On the biggest night of the year for music, the singer walked away with the gongs for best R&B performance for Black Parade, best music video for Brown Skin Girl and best rap performance and best rap song for Savage – her collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, Sky News reports.

She is now tied with record producer Quincy Jones for the second most Grammy wins ever, with the most being held by the late Hungarian conductor Georg Solti, who won 31 awards.

Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z, shared the award for best rap song as he co-wrote Savage, and nine-year-old daughter Blue Ivy took home her first Grammy for her part in the video Brown Skin – shoring up the Carter family’s place in music royalty.

Collecting her gong for best R&B performance for Black Parade, she said: “As an artist I believe it’s my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect time and it’s been such a difficult time.

“I have been working my whole life… this is such a magical night.”
