Taylor Swift has officially become the first-ever artist to win four Album of the Year awards after her historic win during the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday for “Midnights.”
Swift, who was nominated a whopping six times this year including for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Performing Solo Performance, has broken the three-way stalemate between Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder, each of whom only won three of the coveted gramophones.
The “Cruel Summer” singer, who attended the award ceremony without her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, began her Album of the Year journey in 2009 when she won the award for her second album, “Fearless,” beating out several top-tier competitors.
The songstress, 34, famously lost the Album of the Year award in 2014 because several of the LP’s critics claimed that “Red” straddled the line between country and pop too much and was not a cohesive album.
In the “You Belong With Me” singer’s documentary “Miss Americana,” the singer said the loss prompted her to focus more on the “pop” side of the industry, thus paving the way for her comeback album “1989.”
Swift’s dedication to reinvention paid off after she went for gold again in 2016 with her pop album “1989” and secured a win for the music video of “Bad Blood,” featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar.
