Grammys 2021: Beyoncé Makes History With Most wins, Billie Eilish Wins Second Record Of The Year

Beyonce

Pop wunderkind Billie Eilish won record of the year for the second time in a row while Taylor Swift and Beyoncé both made history at Sunday’s Grammy Awards.

Swift became the first female singer to win album of the year three times – taking this year’s honor with “Folklore” – and Beyoncé set a new record for most wins by a female artist and most wins by a singer, male or female, at the ceremony hosted by Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show.” But it was Eilish who took the night’s biggest prize, following up 2020’s record of the year win for “Bad Guy” with a victory this year for “Everything I Wanted.”

Eilish, though, just wanted to give the honor to Megan Thee Stallion for “Savage,” the Houston rapper’s collaboration with Beyoncé. “This is really embarrassing for me … you deserve this,” Eilish told Megan Thee Stallion. “You had a year that was untoppable. You are a queen. I want to cry thinking about how much I love you. You are so beautiful. You are so talented. You deserve everything in the world.”

Megan Thee Stallion still had a great night, becoming the first female rapper to win the prestigious best new artist honor since Lauryn Hill in 1999. “Savage” won best rap song and best rap performance, and Beyoncé also took best R&B performance for “Black Parade” and best music video for “Brown Skin Girl.” With 28 Grammy wins in all, Beyoncé broke a mark set by Alison Krauss.

“Brown Skin Girl” also featured Beyonce’s 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, making her the second-youngest person to win a Grammy. “I’m so proud of you and I’m so proud to be your mommy,” Beyonce said.

British singer Dua Lipa‘s “Future Nostalgia” was named best pop vocal album. H.E.R. won song of the year for “I Can’t Breathe,” Miranda Lambert’s “Wildcard” was named best country album, and Harry Styles wore a lavender feather boa to accept his pop solo performance award for “Watermelon Sugar.”
