Lizzo Wins Record of the Year for “About Damn Time” at 2023 Grammys
Lizzo has won the 2023 Grammy Award for Record of the Year for her Special single “About Damn Time.” She beat out ABBA, Adele, Beyoncé, Brandi Carlile, Doja Cat, Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, and Steve Lacy. In her acceptance speech, Lizzo shouted out artists who inspired her including Prince and Beyoncé, whom she called “the artist of our lives,” referencing Adele’s 2017 Grammy remarks about Beyoncé.
Lizzo got nominated for a handful of trophies this evening, including Album of the Year (Special), Song of the Year (“About Damn Time”), Best Pop Solo Performance (“About Damn Time”), and Best Pop Vocal Album (Special).
Before tonight, Lizzo had three Grammys under her belt, all of which were awarded in 2020. She took home Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts,” as well as Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best Urban Contemporary Album, both for her 2019 LP, Cuz I Love You. The singer will kick off a massive tour in support of Special later this month.
