Beyoncé is regularly described as a queen and an inspiration thanks to her music, but her multiple Guinness World Records prove that she really is the best of the best.
Guinness World Records recognised the singer's achievement with an induction into its 2023 Hall of Fame announced this week, when she was described as the 'queen of femme pop'.
The news comes after the release of her latest album, Renaissance, which dropped on 29 July and quickly made its way to the top of the Official Albums Chart.
With her shiny new Hall of Fame page online, we can see that Beyoncé already has a staggering 20 Guinness World Records under her belt, spanning from 2010 to 2022. Her first record was 'most Grammy nominations in a single year for a female artist', and she went on to achieve multiple others including 'most Grammy awards won in a single year by a female artist', 'most Grammy nominations for a female artist', 'most Grammy awards won by a vocalist' and, in 2022, 'most BET Awards nominations for an individual'.
While some people would be happy with just one Guinness World Record to their name, Beyoncé's list is apparently only getting longer as Rolling Stone reports that she broke more than a dozen records for the 2023 Guinness World Records book.
The records she broke include 'first act to debut at number one with their first six studio albums', with Renaissance making it seven albums, and highest annual earnings for a female singer.
She also holds the top spot for 'most current Twitter engagements (retweets) for a female musician', and shares a world record with her husband, Jay-Z, as the 'highest earning couple in Hollywood ever'.
A tribute to the singer on her Hall of Fame page reads: "Her songs are emblematic of freedom, independence, and femininity and empower women by celebrating their divine femininity through the power of her lyrics. Beyoncé is also an advocate for the advancement of the black community in America.
"The platform she built with her countless wins and appearances is used rightfully as a way for her to spread her messages of equality and strength. As she continues to grace the stage for years to come, Bey’s legacy will keep shining through her unforgettable performances, soulful tracks, and of course, her powerhouse vocals."
Beyoncé isn't the only singer to have joined the Hall of Fame for the 2023 Guinness World Records - she's also been joined by Billie Eilish, who has records for the 'most consecutive Grammy nominations for Record of the Year (female)' and the 'youngest person to win the ‘Triple Crown’ of film music awards' thanks to her Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy wins.
