Taylor Swift Makes Grammy History with Fourth Album of the Year Win: In a dazzling display of her Grmusical prowess, Taylor Swift emerged victorious at the 2024 Grammy Awards, securing her fourth Album of the Year trophy for “Midnights,” her 10th studio album released in 2022. This monumental win propels her into a league of her own, surpassing iconic figures like Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Frank Sinatra, each of whom boasts three Album of the Year victories.
Taking the stage in disbelief after her name was announced by Celine Dion, Swift expressed gratitude to her “once-in-a-generation producer” Jack Antonoff, engineer Laura Sisk, and her friend and collaborator Lana Del Rey, all of whom shared in the celebration alongside her.
In a heartfelt speech, Swift shared, “All I want to do is keep being able to do this. It makes me so happy. All I want to do is keep doing this. Mind blown. Thank you so much.”
This latest triumph adds to Swift’s impressive collection of Album of the Year wins, which began in 2010 with “Fearless,” followed by “1989” in 2016 and “Folklore” in 2021. “Midnights” secured its place at the top, triumphing over nominated albums from Jon Batiste, Boygenius, Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, Janelle Monáe, Olivia Rodrigo, and SZA.
The Album of the Year accolade capped off a remarkable evening for Swift, who earlier surprised fans by announcing a new album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” set for release on April 19, during her acceptance speech for Best Pop Vocal Album.
Arriving at the 2024 awards with six nominations, Swift not only secured her Album of the Year win but also took home the trophy for Best Pop Vocal Album. With these victories, her lifetime Grammy total now stands at an impressive 14, solidifying Taylor Swift’s legacy as one of the most decorated artists in Grammy history.
