The 62nd Grammy Award ceremony was truly a magical evening within it’s self, as we all watched some of of our favorite artists, songwriters and icons receive the followers they rightfully deserve!
The night kicked off with the heir to the beloved Carter family Blue-Ivy taking home her first Grammy award at 9 years old for her work on the hit single ‘Brownskin Girl’ alongside her mother Beyonce and Wiz Kid for Best Music video.
Jay-Z and Kanye West tied for most Grammy awards won by a Hip Hop artist ever. As Kanye took home the win for Best Contemporary Christian Album for his project “Jesus is King”
Following a multi- decade career in music Nas finally received his first Grammy award for his album “ King’s Disease”
The hot girl Coach Megan Thee Stallion took not one or two by three Grammy awards. She won Best New Artist, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her hit single Savage Remix featuring Beyonce.
Fellow Houston, Texas native Beyonce made a special pop up appearance shocking us all despite reports that she wasn’t going to be in attendance. She took home Grammys wins for Best Music video, rap song and rap performance but it was her win for Best R&B performance for her hit single “Black Parade” that brought her over the top.
Beyonce ended the night making history for most Grammys won by a male or female artist ever.
Bruno Mars, Anderson Paak, Silk Sonic, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B all signed and delivered bomb performances. But it was Lil Baby’s performance featuring Killer Mike, activist Tamika Mallory and actor Kendrick Sampson highlighting police brutality that brought everything home for us.
Overall it was an amazing evening. We are pleased to see diversity pushed to the forefront finally, however we can’t ignore the fact academy award shows have an ill way of ignoring the talents of Black and Brown artists. And that must change.
