Heading into Sunday's show, she had more nominations than any other artist with 9 and with her 4 latest wins, Beyoncé now has won a total of 32 Grammy Awards. Her record-breaking and 32nd career Grammy Award came when her latest album "Renaissance" earned the award for Best Dance Electronic Album.

After accepting her award, Beyoncé said, "I’m trying not to be too emotional and I’m trying to just receive this tonight." She was in attendance with her husband, Jay-Z who she thanked among others, during her acceptance speech. "I'd like to thank my parents, my father, my mother, for loving me and pushing me. I'd like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children, who are at home watching." Her other three awards of the night came for Best R & B song for "Cuff It," Best Dance/ Electronic Recording for "Break My Soul." and Best Traditional R & B Performance for "Plastic Off the Sofa."

Beyoncé's first Grammy win came over 20 years ago, with Destiny’s Child in 2001 when they won Best R & B Performance by a Duo or Group and Best R & B Song for “Say My Name."

Next up is her massive "Renaissance World Tour" which will kick off in Stockholm, Sweden on Wednesday, May 10th. She will make stops in 14 cities overseas before returning to the United States for the North American part of her tour in July.
