At the 66th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 4), Taylor Swift not only secured multiple awards but also etched her name in Grammys history.

The “Anti-Hero” artist made Grammys history by breaking a record when she clinched the Album of the Year award for “Midnights” in 2022. This marked her fourth win in the category, making her the first artist to achieve this feat. Previously, Swift won Album of the Year for “Fearless” in 2009, “1989” in 2015, and “Folklore” in 2020. Before this historic win, she was tied with Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Paul Simon, each having three Album of the Year victories.

Celine Dion, who surprised the audience with her appearance amid health struggles, presented Swift with the award. Swift, in her acceptance speech, expressed gratitude to friends and collaborators, including Jack Antonoff and Lana Del Rey, whom she brought on stage. She thanked her supporters for enabling her to pursue her passion for making music.

Swift emphasized, “For me, the award is the work. All I wanna do is keep being able to do this, I love it so much.” She expressed joy in making both herself and others happy through her music.

The night held additional significance for Swift, as she announced the release of a new album during her acceptance of the Best Pop Vocal Album award for “Midnights.” This marked her 13th Grammy award. Swift revealed that the new album, titled “The Tortured Poets Department,” would be released on April 19. While details about the album remain scarce, her official Instagram page teased, “all’s fair in love and poetry.”
