The award was presented to the “Texas Hold Em” artist by the legendary Stevie Wonder.

Wonder gave a summary of her unparalleled accomplishments thus far, which include being the “first African-American woman to headline Coachella” as well as having the distinction of having a number one hit across all four decades since the 1990s.

Her accomplishments also include being the first black woman to land a number one single on the Country billboard charts this year with her new album Cowboy Carter.

Wearing a cowboy hat, which has become a signature of her new era, she thanked the “Isn’t She Lovely” singer for the honour.

“Thank you for making a wave for all of us,” Beyoncé told Wonder. “I’m honoured to receive this recognition from you.”

“Whenever anyone asks me if there’s anyone I could listen to for the rest of my life, it’s always you,” she added, going on to thank Wonder for “playing the harmonica on ‘Jolene’.”
