The win has led her to be the second-youngest person to take home the music award.
Along with her mom, and WizKid, Blue Ivy won Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl” during the Grammys pre-telecast ceremony Sunday afternoon.
The all-time record for a woman with the most Grammys was held by Alison Krauss with 27 wins until Queen Bee surpassed it this weekend with 28 total wins.
Beyoncé was nominated for nine awards at the 2021 Grammys, which took place Sunday night in Los Angeles.
The song “Brown Skin Girl” is from Beyoncé’s album The Lion King: The Gift, where Blue Ivy sang the opening and closing lines.
“When I see fathers singing ‘Brown Skin Girl’ to their daughters, to know that my daughter can have the same opportunities and feel confident and feel like she doesn’t have to take her braids down, she can comb her Afro out, she can glisten in her brown skin. That’s why I make music,” Beyoncé said in an ABC special on the making of the album.
“I wanted to uplift, encourage, and celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world,” she said during her acceptance speech.
“This is so overwhelming. I’ve been working my whole life since 9 years old. I can’t believe this happened. This is such a magical night. Thank you so much.”
“I love you so much, my rock,” she said, turning to her husband Jay-Z in the crowd. “Enjoy your night.”
