In 2018, St. Vincent was included twice in NPR’s “200 Greatest songs by 21st Century Women”: at number 181 with “Digital Witness” and at number 38 with “Cruel”. Strange Mercy was among Pitchfork‘s 200 Best Albums of the 2010s, ranking at number 55. St. Vincent ranked number 65 on Rolling Stone‘s 100 Best Albums of the 2010s.
Masseduction, Clark’s fifth studio album released in 2017, earned her Best Rock Song and Best Recordings Package at the Grammys, where she also performed alongside Dua Lipa for a mashup performance of their respective Grammy-nominated songs, ‘Masseduction’ and ‘One Kiss.’
After it was all done and everything, Paul called me to thank me and tell me that he liked it! It was the best moment of my life… maybe? I mean, I don’t… I don’t know where to put that. One thing that occurred to me was, think about how many hours of enjoyment in the world have happened as a result of Paul McCartney’s music. Lifetimes and lifetimes of hours that people have spent listening to his work. […] At the end of the conversation he said, ‘It’s a great thing that we get to do, this music thing, right?’ I was like, ‘Yes Paul – yes it is.’St. Vincent – from NME, April 2, 2021
