Beyoncé Sweeps Dance/Electronic Grammys, Televising The Category For The First Time

Beyoncé was the major winner of the Grammys last night. Not only did the pop legend win four awards causing her to break the record for most Grammy wins of all time with 32, but she also swept the Dance/Electronic categories.

Her 2022 album, RENAISSANCE, took home Best Dance/Electronic Album, and the lead single, “BREAK MY SOUL” won for Best Dance/Electronic Recording. RENAISSANCE featured house music greats in production credits like Honey Dijon and Green Velvet.

Moreover, in a win for dance music as a whole, the dance awards were televised for the first time since the category was created 23 years ago.

RENAISSANCE beat out extraordinary pieces by Diplo, ODESZA, Bonobo, and RÜFÜS DÜ SOL, leading many dance music fans to uproar over Beyoncé’s domination.

However, the visibility Beyoncé gave the category was also echoed by her praise of the LGBTQ+ roots in house music and the LP. During her speech, Beyoncé said, “I’d like to thank the queer community for the love, and for inventing the genre.”

She also credited her uncle who introduced her to “disco/funk and soul,” inspiring her to create a “club-focused album.”
