Michelle Obama beat the Beastie Boys and others Sunday, taking home the trophy in the 2020 Grammys’ spoken word category for her audio edition of “Becoming.”

With the win for her 2018 memoir about life as a black woman in America and her days in the White House, the former first lady — who was a big hit at last year’s ceremony — joins husband Barack Obama on the Grammys’ winners list.

The 44th president won spoken-word statues in 2006 for his recording of “Dreams From My Father” and another in 2008 for “The Audacity of Hope.”

Along with Michelle Obama’s “Becoming,” Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz’s “Beastie Boy Book” and John Waters’ “Mister Know It All” rounded out the trio of celebrity nominees in the category.
