Ranked: Who’s Won The Most Grammy Awards?

At the recent 65th Grammy Awards, Harry Styles, Lizzo, and Bonnie Raitt won the year’s biggest awards.

But several other music stars and celebrities, including Beyoncé with four awards from nine nominations, were also feted by the musical community.

The results of the night were historic when it comes to the most Grammy-awarded artists, with a reshuffle happening at the very top. This graphic from Athul Alexander highlights the artists with the most Grammy wins of all time. Data is sourced from the Grammys’ official website and was updated with the latest results as of February 5, 2023.

Most Grammy Award Wins as of 2023

After the latest ceremonies, global megastar Beyoncé tops a list of record holders and fiercely talented artists, just ahead of celebrated composer Sir Georg Solti.

Despite their closeness in awards received, the two artists are as different as chalk and cheese. On one hand there’s Beyoncé, who has spent 26 years in the industry. She started as a part of the all-girl group Destiny’s Child before beginning her solo career in 2003, finding critical and commercial success in both ventures.

On the other hand is Sir Georg Solti, a renowned conductor. Solti was born in Budapest in 1912, but fled Hungary on account of increasingly harsh anti-Jewish laws, finding refuge in Switzerland right before World War II. Over time he became a conductor and musical director of some of the world’s best orchestras, and was credited with turning around the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Solti is joined by other composers as the most-winning Grammy artists, including Chik Corea, Pierre Boulez, and John Williams. Hip-hop legends Kanye West and Jay-Z are tied for 10th place, with 24 awards each.

Beyoncé Elevating Women Grammy Winners

Even as Beyoncé has now claimed the crown as the most-decorated artist for herself, it is notable that only one other female artist, Alison Krauss, features with her in the ranks of artists with more than 20 Grammys to their name.

14Shirley Caesar11

16Chaka Khan10

The bluegrass singer is well ahead of other notable female winners such as Aretha Franklin (18) and more recent pop icons including Adele (16), Alicia Keys (15), and Lady Gaga (15). Even country singer Dolly Parton has “only” won 10 Grammys despite being a country music legend and pop cultural phenomenon.

The question now becomes, how long will Beyoncé hold onto her new crown (and which artist, if any, will replace her)?

America’s Takeout Food Preferences: A Decade of Change

A ranking of America's most-ordered takeout food on DoorDash in 2013 and 2023.

Launched by Stanford students in 2012, delivery behemoth DoorDash now holds about 56% of the American online food delivery market. As a result, the company has unique insights into what Americans are ordering for food, as well as how their habits have changed.

In this visual, we rank DoorDash’s most-ordered takeout food in 2013 and 2023, per their “Decade Delivered” report.

French Fries: Born in Belgium, Loved by America

French fries are DoorDash’s most-ordered food in 2023 compared to the Panera chipotle chicken sandwich in 2013.

As it happens, French fries are also the most-ordered food on the platform of all time.

Since 2013, more than 600 million orders of fries have been delivered, and as the company notes, it is “a perfect food that (almost) no one’s making at home.”

Here’s their top 10 most-ordered takeout food items in 2013 and 2023

1🥪 Chipotle Chicken Sandwich🍟 French Fries
2🥟 Pork Potstickers🥙 Chicken Quesadilla
3🍲 Tomato Bisque Soup🧀 Mozzarella Sticks
4🥗 Cobb Salad🫓 Garlic Naan
5🍠 Sweet Potato Fries🌶️ Spicy Chicken Sandwich
6🥑 Guacamole🍕 Pepperoni Pizza
7🧆 Hummus🧀 Chips & Queso
8🧀 Grilled Cheese Sandwich🍗 Traditional Wings
9🌮 Tacos🥗 Cobb Salad
10🫓 Pita🍚 Fried Rice

Interestingly, the Cobb salad is the only food item to stay within the top 10, though it has fallen five ranking spots in the last decade.

And while the chipotle chicken sandwich specifically is no longer on the top 10, spicy chicken sandwiches rank at sixth place in 2023.

When comparing overall trends over the decade, 2013 seemed to have more varied cuisine in the top 10: Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, and French.

Meanwhile, 2023 is concentrated around American and Mexican food. DoorDash also states that the latter two are the most-ordered cuisines of the past decade. Almost universally, however, finger foods are the theme: whether it be fries, wings, pizza, tacos or pitas.
