Both artists had successful nights at last week’s ceremony, with Beyoncé taking home the most awards at the ceremony, picking up four out of her nine nominations. In the process, she also broke the record for the most Grammy wins by a female artist or any singer, male or female.
Taylor, meanwhile, won album of the year for ‘Folklore’, becoming the first woman in history to win the award three times after previous wins for ‘1989’ and ‘Fearless’.
Posting on Instagram, Taylor shared a photo of the flowers and handwritten note Beyonce sent her after they saw each other at the ceremony.
