Starting with Destiny’s Child and continuing through to her album with Jay-Z, entitled Everything Is Love, and her visual album, Lemonade, Beyoncé earned multple Grammy Awards throughout her career.
“We all experience pain and loss, and often, we become inaudible. My intention for [Lemonade] was to create a body of work that would give a voice to our pain, our struggles, our darkness, and our history. To confront issues that make us uncomfortable,” Beyoncé said during her acceptance speech.
