Taylor Swift set a record at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday, becoming the first artist to win album of the year four times.
Prior to the win, she had been tied with Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder. Her album “Midnights” beat out Jon Batiste, boygenius, Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, Janelle Monáe, Olivia Rodrigo and SZA.
“I would love to tell you that this is the best moment in my life,” she said in her acceptance speech. “But I feel this happy when I finished a song or when I cracked the code to a bridge that I love or when I’m shortlisting a music video or when I’m rehearsing with my dancers or my band or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show. For me, the award is the work.”
Earlier in the night, Swift took home the award for best pop vocal album for “Midnights,” and in her acceptance speech, she surprised fans by announcing her brand-new album, “Tortured Poets Department.”
Swift’s wins come after a series of success. The “Eras Tour” concert film also became the highest-grossing concert film of all time in the U.S. and Canada within days of its premiere.
