Taylor Swift, the US singer, has set a record for album of the year wins at the Grammy Awards.


On Sunday night, ‘Midnights,’ Swift’s most recent project, beat out entries from SZA, Olivia Rodrigo, Lana Del Rey, Miley Cyrus, Jon Batiste and Janelle Monáe to take the Grammys’ top album prize.

Swift becomes the first singer to win that category four times — more than any other artiste in the 66-year history of the prize.

Phoebe Bridgers, the US singer, also won the highest number of awards at the 2024 Grammy Awards.


Bridgers, alongside her Boygenius music group, won four awards including the ‘Best Alternative Music Album’ and ‘Best Rock Song’ categories.

Other categories won are ‘Best Pop Duo/Group Performance’ and ‘Best Rock Performance’.

Davido and Burna Boy were among the six Nigerian artistes that lost their categories at the prestigious award ceremony.


Davido, who is a first-time Grammy nominee, was nominated in three categories — including ‘Best Global Album’ for his latest album, ‘Timeless’.

Others are ‘Best African Performance’ for his song ‘Unavailable’ and ‘Best Global Music Performance’ for his track ‘Feel’.

He, however, lost the ‘Best African Music’ category to Tyla’s ‘Water’, ‘Best Global Music Performance’ to ‘Pashto’ by Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain featuring Rakesh Chaurasia, and ‘Best Global Album’ to Shakti’s ‘The Moment’.

Burna Boy, who was nominated in four categories — including ‘Best Melodic Rap’, ‘’Best Global Music Album’, ‘Best Global Music Performance’ and ‘Best African Music Performance’ — also failed to win in all the categories.


The ‘Twice as Tall’ hitmaker lost the ‘Best African Music’ category to Tyla’s ‘Water’, and ‘Best Global Music Performance’ to ‘Pashto’ by Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain featuring Rakesh Chaurasia.

Shakti’s ‘The Moment’ won the ‘Best Global Album’ category while ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ went to Lil Durk’s ‘All My Life’ featuring J Cole.

Tyla, the South African singer, edged past the likes of Asake, Olamide, and Ayra Starr, to win the ‘Best African Music Performance’, the newly introduced category.

Tems also lost the ‘Best Song Written for Visual Media’ category. She had been nominated for her contribution to the movie ‘The Black Panther (Wakanda Forever)’ with the song ‘Lift Me Up’ alongside Rihanna and Ludwig Goransson. But the award went to Billie Eilish and Finneas for their song ‘What Was I Made For’.


The award ceremony was held at the Peacock Theater. It was broadcast live on GRAMMY.com and the Recording Academy’s YouTube channel.
