Grammys 2023 reaction

Beyonce broke a huge record at the 2023 Grammy’s by becoming the most successful artist in Grammy history with 42 awards. She did so by winning the award for best dance/electronic album.

However, many fans of Queen Bey felt she was unlucky to miss out on the most prestigious prize of album of the year.

Beyonce is yet to win the award for album of the year in her career so far and she missed out this year as well, with Harry Styles instead taking the prize for his blockbuster album Harry’s House.

One user tweeted: “Renaissance was robbed of the prize.”
