Taylor Swift wins her fourth Grammy for Album of the Year, makes history from Mashable

Taylor Swift made history at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, becoming the only person in the award show’s history to win Album of the Year four times. The previous record was jointly held by musical icons Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, and Stevie Wonder.

Announced by Celine Dion, Swift shares her Grammy for Album of the Year with her fellow producer and songwriter Jack Antonoff, as well as engineers/mixers Zem Audu, Bryce Bordone, Serban Ghenea, David Hart, Mikey Freedom Hart, Sean Hutchinson, Ken Lewis, Michael Riddleberger, Laura Sisk, and Evan Smith, and mastering engineer Randy Merrill.

Swift previously won the Grammy for Album of the year with Fearless in 2010, 1989 in 2016, and Folklore in 2021.

“I would love to tell you that this is the best moment of my life, but I feel this happy when I finish a song, or when I crack the code to a bridge that I love, or that I’m shot listing a music video, or when I’m rehearsing with my dancers or my band, or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show,” Swift said in her acceptance speech.

“For me the award is the work. All I want to do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much, it makes me so happy. It makes me unbelievably blown away that it makes some people happy who voted for this award too. All I want to do is keep doing this, so thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do what I love so much. Mind blown. Thank you so much!”

Swift had already been awarded the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album earlier in the night, noting in her acceptance speech that it was her 13th Grammy — famously her lucky number.

Time’s Person of the Year for 2023 also took the opportunity of her earlier win to announce her new album The Tortured Poets Department, revealing that it would be released Apr. 19. Swift posted the album art to her Instagram account once offstage, which features a black and white photograph of her lying on a bed.
