Queen Bey’s emotional triumph after securing the Best Dance/Electronic Album Grammy for “Renaissance” is a win for the queer community.

Beyoncé, one of the most successful black people in the world, continues to prove her salt. 

The American superstar also swept the Best R&B Song for “Cuff It,” the Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa” and the Best Dance/Electronic Song with “Break My Soul. 

In February, Beyoncé thanked her fans for their immense support and loyalty. She posted a photo dressed in a pink statement piece and a gold headgear on Instagram.

“Thank y’all so much for all of your love and loyalty! Big thank you for the BREAK MY SOUL and CUFF IT wins!!! To The Dream, Tricky, HOV, and Big Freedia. I love y’all! It feels great to be honored for the vocal performance. Thank you to all the talented vocalists who killed those beautiful TikTok renditions! I feel very grateful and filled with joy!” she captioned the post.

The chart-topping superstar delivered an emotional speech onstage when she went to collect her historic win. She had special messages for her husband, kids while dedicating the award to the queer community

“I’m trying not to be too emotional. I’m trying to receive this night … I want to thank God for protecting me. Thank you, God. I’d like to thank my uncle Johnny, who’s not here, but he’s here in spirit. I’d like to thank my parents. My father and my mother for loving me and pushing me. My beautiful husband and beautiful three children. Thank you to the queer community for your love and for inventing this genre. Thank you so much to the Grammys.”

Beyoncé, who set a new record with 32 Grammy Awards, now joins the league of iconic singers like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey for the most BBMA wins for women of color.
