Beyoncé is the Most Grammy-Nominated Woman Ever

On Friday, the 2015 Grammy nominations were announced. Although many people criticize the awards for their nomination tactics and focus on mainstream music, receiving a Grammy nomination is still one of the highest honors for recording music artists. And with this year's announcements, history was made.

With five new nominations—including Album of the Year and Best Urban Contemporary Album—on top of her existing 46 noms, Beyoncé just became the most Grammy-nominated woman recording artist in history.

Beginning with the surprise release of her critically acclaimed eponymous album Beyoncé in December 2013, the past year has been a game-changer for Bey. But she has been steadily building her empire since 2000, when she received her first Grammy for Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills." Since then, she has won 16 other Grammy's. She is currently the seventh-most nominated artist of all time. 

In honor of her #BlackExcellence, here are some of Queen Bey's most celebratory jams. People love to hate her, but one thing is for damn sure: Yoncé knows how to make a hit record. And I ain't mad about it.
