Beyoncé Knowles-Carter may be the winner of the most awards in Grammys history, but she’s equally happy to see fellow musicians get rewarded for their talent and hard-earned work. After Taylor Swift’s Folklore project was named victorious in the category for Best Album of the Year, Queen Bey gifted her with some flowers to celebrate her win.
Swift then took to Instagram on Friday morning (March 19) to share a photo of the bouquet, which was sent along with a handwritten note. “Taylor, Congratulations on your Grammy. It was great seeing you on Sunday night,” Beyoncé wrote. “Thank you for always being so supportive. Sending love to you and your family. B.”
Alongside the photo of her gift, Swift expressed her gratitude before applauding Bey for making Grammys history. “Woke up to flowers from the queen of grace & greatness @beyonce, and suddenly it’s the best Friday EVER,” she wrote. “Thank you B, and congratulations on your epic achievement Sunday night!!”
Beyoncé’s sweet gesture brings back the memory of the unforgettable moment Kanye West interrupted Swift during her acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Though West thought Bey deserved the honor for Best Video, Mrs. Carter brought Swift up on stage later that night so she could “have her moment.”
“I remember being 17 years old, up for my first MTV Award with Destiny’s Child, and it was one of the most exciting moments in my life,” Beyoncé said at the time. “So, I’d like for Taylor to come out and have her moment.”
As reported by REVOLT, Beyoncé’s victories in the categories of Best Music Video, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance and Best R&B Performance make her a winner of 28 Grammys — the most awards given to any singer, male or female, in the show’s history.
Amid her record-breaking moment, however, she took the time to congratulate another winner: her daughter Blue Ivy Carter. Bey also praised Megan Thee Stallion when “Savage Remix” beat out the nominees for Best Rap Song. “I am so proud of you,” she told Meg. “I just want to quickly give my love to Megan. I have so much respect for you. I am honored that you asked me to be apart of this song.”
