2021 is Megan Thee Stallion’s year and we love to see it! The Houston Hottie won the coveted Best New Artist award. Woot!

The last few years have been a rollercoaster ride for Meg. As her career started taking off, she suffered the lost of her mother, Holly, in Match 2019.

During her acceptance speech, she fought back tears while paying tribute to her.

“I know she is here with me in spirit,” she said.

Best New Artist was Megan’s second Grammy win of the night, presented by Lizzo.

Watch her acceptance speech below:

Meg’s win was the first time a female rapper won Best New Artist since Lauryn Hill won the honor in 1999. Take a trip down memory lane below: 

After winning Best Rap Performance and Best New Artist…

…the “BODY” raptress scooped up another award: Best Rap Song! She won the award alongside Beyoncé for their collaboration track “Savage Remix.” Not only was the win a total surprise, Beyoncé’s presence was also a shocker. Apparently, Meg didn’t see when Bey and Jay-Z snuck in, so when she walked up to accept the award and saw Bey, she was SO shocked.

The fab female duo already made history with one Grammy win when they were honored with the Best Rap Performance award. They were the first female collaborators to win the award.

Congrats ladies!

By the way, the Best Rap Song win awarded Beyoncé a total of 27 Grammy Awards, tying with Alison Krauss, who is the most Grammy-winning female artist of all time.
