Fresh off of her record-breaking victory at the Grammys, Beyoncé has won four NAACP Image awards. During the non-televised portion of the annual show, Bey was named this year’s Outstanding Female Artist for her work in Black Parade. Her single, “Brown Skin Girl” took home the trophy for Outstanding Music Video/Visual Album, securing a win for WizKid, SAINt JHN and Blue Ivy Carter — who now owns two awards. The last wins were alongside Megan Thee Stallion as “Savage Remix” won the categories of Outstanding Hip-Hop / Rap Song and Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration (Contemporary).

Other big winners of the award show include Bey’s protegees, Chloe x Halle, who won the awards for Outstanding Soul / R&B Song and Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration (Traditional).

Drake’s Laugh Now, Cry Later project also earned him the title of Outstanding Male Artist award.

A few more notable artists garnered wins in the annual show. Jhené Aiko’s Chilombo, for example, picked up an NAACP award for Outstanding Album. Doja Cat’s “Say So” helped her acquire the trophy for Outstanding New Artist, and Trevor Noah was named Outstanding Host in a Talk or News/Information (series or special) for his night time talk show, “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah.”

Additionally, Grammy-award winner Hit-Boy — who produced both Nas’ King’s Disease and Big Sean’s Detroit 2 — received the Outstanding Producer of the Year award, and Timbaland and Swizz Beatz’s popular Verzuz platform won in the category for Outstanding Variety Show (series or special).

The NAACP Image Awards will go down on Saturday (March 27) at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on BET. LeBron James is set to receive the President’s Award, and Arsenio Hall will present Eddie Murphy with an award as he is inducted into the Hall of Fame. The show will also feature performances from Jazmine Sullivan and Maxwell.
