The top winners of the 2021 Grammy Awards were all women. Female artists took over the top four categories, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist. Meanwhile, Beyoncé broke a new record as the artist with the most Grammy awards in history with a total of 28 wins. Let's take a look at the achievements of the most influential artists in their genres around the world.
After being out of the Grammys for five years, Taylor returned to the ceremony performing "Folklore" and taking home the Grammy for Best Album of the Year. She competed in six categories. Recently, the "Cardigan" singer pointed out in one of her Instagram posts that some of the songs on this album are written from the perspective of different characters, including people she knows and people she has never met. Fans were happy to welcome Taylor during the celebration.
At 19, Billie has become one of the most successful singers of this generation. Her name always tops the music charts. She is also one of the best-known artists during the most famous musical ceremonies for winning awards in the main categories. This year, she received with her brother Finneas the Grammy for Record of the Year for her song "Everything I Wanted." In the music video for this song, she is in a car with her brother, sinking into the deepest, darkest part of the ocean. Another recognition of her: her sensitivity and her unique voice earned him the opportunity to sing the theme of the new James Bond film "No Time to Die."
Dua won the Best Pop Vocal Album award for her masterpiece "Future Nostalgia." As a six-time nominee, the talented singer was expected to add a new Grammy to her collection. At the 2019 ceremony, she took home the trophies for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording. Since just two years later, she has accomplished a lot, throwing bop after bop. The "Physical" singer delighted the audience with her performance during the ceremony in which she presented her hits "Levitating" ft. DaBaby and "Don't Start Now". Her live performance of her at this year's Grammys is the number one video right now on YouTube.
Megan Thee Stallion
Megan Thee Stallion won Best Rap Performance, Best New Artist, and Best Rap Song. She gave an unforgettable performance with Cardi B of her song "W.A.P." Megan performed two of her other hit songs, including "Body" and her collaboration with Beyoncé "Savage Remix." Thanks to her talent and her collaboration with prominent artists, she has become a popular and respected name in the music industry.
Finally, H.E.R.'s "I Can't Breathe" took home a Grammy for Song of the Year. The song became an anthem for the Black Lives Matter movement, in which it addresses in its lyrics the death of George Floyd, one of the most famous victims of police brutality in the United States towards the black community. Through his powerful message, H.E.R. showed that more than worrying about topping the music charts, real artists use their voices to talk about what really matters.
All of these amazing women continue to inspire female communities to speak up, be themselves, and never lose the conviction to move forward with their dreams and talents.
