Beyoncé breaks all-time Grammy record, Styles wins for best album
Queen Bey is once again shut out for album of the year, but breaks the all-time Grammy record.
Pop singer Beyonce, known as the Queen Bey, reigned supreme at the Grammys on Sunday, breaking the all-time record for wins with her 32nd prize and fourth of the night. However, Album of the Year slipped from her fingers and went to Harry Styles.
All of the top contenders including Adele, Taylor Swift and Lizzo went home with an award.
Following the release of "Renaissance", Beyonce entered the ceremony with the most chances at Grammy gold. She broke the all-time Grammy record by winning the prize for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album for her smash "Renaissance," thus surpassing the late classical conductor Georg Solti, who had 31 awards.
"I'm trying not to be too emotional. And I'm trying to just receive this night," Beyonce said, wearing a shimmering, curve-hugging gown, her hair in mermaid waves as her peers witnessed the history-making moment.

On the other hand, while her album was considered a likely candidate for best album, it was Harry Styles who stole that prestigious award.
"On nights like tonight, it's obviously so important for us to remember that there is no such thing as bests in music," said Styles.
Styles wasn't the only one to shut Beyonce's album out. Back in 2017, Adele swept the top prices at the glitzy music biz gala, shutting out Beyonce's "Lemonade" album.

Even though she broke the record, Beyonce has never won Album or Record of the Year, which this time around went to Lizzo for "About Damn Time." She only scored Song of the Year once, for 2008's "Single Ladies."
Beyonce was nevertheless the top winner on Sunday with her four gramophones.
