H.E.R. holds her Grammys for Song of the Year and R&B Song of the Year. Along with H.E.R., Taylor Swift and Beyonce made history at the 2021 Grammys. Swift became the first female to win three Album of the Year awards, and Beyonce became the winner of the most Grammys ever for a female artist.

The 2021 Grammys was a perfect reflection of how women in the music industry should be celebrated. Yes, the month of March is Women’s History Month, but society should not limit uplifting women to these 31 days. 

Beyoncé made history by breaking the female record for having the most Grammys ever. The song she is featured in, “Savage Remix,” won her best rap song and best rap performance. Her song “Black Parade” won her best R&B performance, and “Brown Skin Girl” was awarded with best music video. 

Taylor Swift also made history by becoming the first female to win album of the year three times. She won this award with her quarantine album “Folklore.” We were all surprised when Swift announced this album because rather than a sneak peak three months prior to the release like her past albums, she posted a simple picture on Instagram with a 12-hour countdown. Who would’ve guessed that this acoustic, stripped down album would make history?

Megan Pete, also known as Megan Thee Stallion, won her first three Grammys, including best new artist. “Savage Remix” earned her best rap song and best rap performance. The song featured Beyoncé, so these awards were received by them together. This achievement brought Megan to tears as she thanked her mom and God for the award. 

The list of female winners goes on, some of which include Billie Eilish for record of the year and best song written for visual media, and H.E.R. with song of the year and R&B song of the year. 

Congratulations to all these outstanding females who were given the recognition they deserved at the 2021 Grammys. Happy Women’s History Month, ladies.
