On a historic evening, Taylor Swift clinched the Album of the Year Grammy on Sunday for her 2022 release “Midnights,” establishing herself as the artist with the most wins in this prestigious category, totaling four.

Before this victory, Swift shared the record for three Album of the Year wins with Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Paul Simon. Her previous victories in this category include “Fearless” in 2009, “1989” in 2015, and “Folklore” in 2021.

Following a moment of joy as Swift received the award from presenter Celine Dion, she expressed, “I would love to tell you that this is the best moment in my life, but I feel this happy when I finish a song or when I crack the code to a bridge that I love.”

She emphasized that the true reward lies in the creative process, stating, “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.”

Taylor Swift, however, extended her gratitude to producer Jack Antonoff, whom she referred to as one of her “best friends” and a “once-in-a-generation producer,” highlighting their collaboration on “Midnights” and several of her previous albums.

She also thanked singer Lana Del Rey, with whom she collaborated on “Snow on the Beach” from the album, lauding Del Rey as a “legacy artist” and “a legend in her prime right now.”

Before this Grammy win, Taylor Swift had earlier announced in the ceremony her upcoming 11th studio album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” set for release in April. Swift received six Grammy nominations this year, including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Pop Solo Performance, Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Pop Vocal Album.

Earlier in the evening, she secured the Best Pop Vocal Album award for “Midnights” as well.
