American singer and song writer Beyoncé won a record-breaking 32nd Grammy Award at this year’s ceremony in Los Angeles.
Beyoncé made history as she won best dance/electronic album for her euphoric dance creation, Renaissance.
In doing so, she overtook Hungarian-British conductor George Solti, whose record of 31 Grammys had stood for more than 20 years.
Queen Bey went on to thank her family, including her late uncle Jonny, who helped make her stage outfits before her fame.

Beyoncé has previously said his battle with HIV influenced her interest in dance music, and its historical ties to the LGBTQ community, on Renaissance.
Overall, Beyoncé won four prizes at the ceremony – but missed some of the early presentations after getting stuck in traffic on her way to the venue.
“I’m surprised traffic could stop you,” joked the host Trevor Noah. “I thought you travelled through space and time.”
Despite her success, Beyoncé was once again locked out of the coveted album of the year award.
She has now lost the prize four times, most notably in 2017 when her confessional masterpiece Lemonade was beaten by Adele’s 25.
