Brooklyn-based Pakistani artist Arooj Aftab missed out on winning her second Grammy at this year's ceremony. She was nominated for Best Global Music Performance for her song "Udhero Na" with Anoushka Shankar, but Wouter Kellerman, Zakes Bantwini & Nomcebo Zikode's "Bayethe" took home the award.

At the 2021 Grammy Awards, Pakistani singer-songwriter Aftab Khan had the honour of taking the stage alongside the renowned Shankar Mahadevan. Despite not winning an award, the performance was met with a lot of fanfare and appreciation for her talent.

Later in the night, however, it was Beyonce's record-breaking win that stole the show. She became the first artist in Grammy history to earn 32 accolades with her fourth win of the night for Best Dance/Electronic music album for her hit Renaissance.

Beyonce accepted the award with great poise and humility, thanking her team and family for the support, and expressing emotional awe at the momentous occasion. As she stood in her shimmering gown, her peers rose to honour the momentous achievement. This record-breaking win will surely remain an inspiration for upcoming artists, and her impact on the music industry will continue to be felt for years to come.

Back in 2022, the singer's career skyrocketed when she was nominated in the Best New Artist category at the Grammys. Though she didn't win the award, she did manage to receive the coveted Best Music Performance award for her song Mohabbat the following year.

The single was a sensation and propelled her to superstardom as one of the most promising new acts in the industry. The singer's star continues to shine brightly, as she continues to gain recognition for her fantastic works of art. Ultimately, she is a shining example of true talent and dedication, inspiring many to chase their dreams of achieving greatness.
