Singer Beyonce is all set to pass Hungarian-British conductor Georg Solti’s 31-win record win at the Grammy Awards 2023 to become the most decorated artist in the show’s history. The singer won a third Grammy thus far and 31st overall in a career spanning more than two decades to break her tie with Quincy Jones, who was second with 28 Grammys.

Beyoncé and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, have received 88 nominations each, making them the two artists with the most Grammy nominations to date. With a total of 22 trophies, U2 now maintains the record for most awards received by a group.

The song “Cuff It” by Beyoncé won the award for best R&B song, outshining tracks by Mary J. Blige, Muni Long, Jazmine Sullivan, and PJ Morton.

Beyoncé wasn’t there to accept the prize in person. The-Dream, one of the eight writers listed on “Cuff It,” took the stage in her stead, with the program bleeping his prepared remarks. He swiftly added, “Beyoncé thanks y’all,” and walked away.

Who was Georg Solti?

Georg Solti, a Jewish man who was born in Budapest in 1912, fled the nation during World War II as anti-Jewish policies in Hungary were becoming more prevalent. The Bavarian State Opera hired Solti as its music director following the war. He served as music director of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden from 1961 to 1971.

From 1969 to 1991, Solti then spent 22 years as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s music director. Queen Elizabeth II bestowed a knighthood on Solti in 1972 in recognition of his remarkable musical achievements.
