Historic Wins for Women at 2021 GRAMMY’s Awards
The 2021 GRAMMY Awards prove to hold several historic wins. Artists like Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Megan Thee Stallion are among the few that will go down in history after that night.
On the evening of the awards, Beyoncé became the most-awarded woman in GRAMMY history. Taylor Swift became the first female artist to win Album Of The Year three times, and Megan Thee Stallion won for Best New Artist. These wins ushered in a new sense of female empowerment in the music industry.
As if twenty-eight overall wins and nine nominations just this year weren’t enough for Queen Bey, her daughter, Blue Ivy, won as well. She became the second-youngest person to win a GRAMMY Award for her writing credit “Brown Skin Girl,” which won Best Music Video. Taylor Swift won Album Of The Year for Fearless in 2008, 1989 in 2014, and Folklore this year. Megan Thee Stallion, a breakout artist for this year, won awards for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song, along with a nomination for Record Of The Year, for her song “Savage.”
“Our Best New Artist [Megan Thee Stallion] acted as an empowering avatar for the female-led pop vanguard,” says Morgan Enos, Staff Writer at GRAMMY.com.
These three artists are beloved by women and LGBTQ+ people worldwide for their relatable and feel-good music. Their winnings signify a new era of inclusivity and empowerment for not only women but all marginalized communities.
