Beyonce Makes History/Ties All-Time GRAMMY Nominations Record with Husband Jay-Z+On Course To Become The Most Decorated GRAMMY Winner In History [Details]

Posted November 17, 2022

Beyonce became the top nominee for the 2023 Grammy Awards when the nominations were announced earlier this week as we previously told you.

Queen Bey received nine nods thanks to her hit album ‘Renaissance’, followed by Kendrick Lamar with eight, Adele and Brandi Carlile with seven each.

This marks the sixth time Beyoncé has led (or co-led) the annual Grammy nominations but now she has set yet another Grammy record thanks to this round of nominations.

Her nine nods bring her career total of nominations to 88, which puts her in a direct tie with her hubby, Jay-Z for the most Grammy nominations in history. Jay received five nods this year.

Following Jay and Bey are Paul McCartney (81 nods) and Quincy Jones (80 nods) for the most career nominations.

Beyoncé is also the first woman of color to receive four album of the year nominations (as a lead artist). She had been tied with Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and H.E.R. with three nods each in the category.

Out of all of her nominations over the years, she currently has 28 GRAMMY wins to date. She also became the performing artist with the most GRAMMY wins ever in 2021 and joined Quincy Jones in a direct tie after beating Alison Krauss for the most GRAMMY wins ever by a female artist at that time.

The only other person ahead of Bey and Quincy is the late classical conductor Georg Solti, who has 31 GRAMMYs to date. So in summary, if Beyonce wins at least 4 of her 9 nods at the 2023 show, she will replace Solit as THEE artist with the most GRAMMY wins in history.

The 65th Annual GRAMMYs will broadcast on Sunday, February 5 from Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena and air on CBS and Paramount+.

Peep her wins from last year’s show.
