The 2024 Grammys: A night showcasing the best women in music

The Grammy’s are music awards hosted by the Recording Academy and took place just recently on February 4. This year’s awards became the year of women in music.

Taylor Swift (she/her) made Grammy history by winning Album Of The Year for the fourth time with her album, Midnights. This win makes her the first musician to get the award four times. She won this award shortly after winning her 13th Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album also for Midnights. After winning that award she announced her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department coming out later this year.

Phoebe Bridgers won the most of the night winning Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance with the other members of boygenius, Julien Baker (she/her) and Lucy Dacus (she/her) for their song “Not Strong Enough.” The boygenius album, the record, won Best Alternative Music Album. Phoebe Bridgers also won in collaboration with SZA for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for SZA’s song “Ghost In The Machine,” which Phoebe is featured on. SZA also won for Best R&B Song for her song “Snooze,” and Best Progressive R&B Album for her album SOS. Paramore won Best Rock Album and Best Alternative Music Performance for their album This Is Why, becoming the first female-fronted band to win Best Rock Album. 

The Grammys this year were incredibly competitive and did a great job of showcasing the best women to pay attention to in music into the next year.
