2017-rap-rnb-grammy-award-winers

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards show was live from the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles last night and it turned out to be an EPIC night for the Urban music community.

Chance The Rapper made history by taking home his first GRAMMY for “Best Rap Album” and becoming the first artist ever win the award with a stream-only album. In addition to “Best Rap Album,” Chance also won “Best New Artist” and “Best Rap Performance” for his ‘Coloring Book’ single “No Problem” featuring 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne.

Chance shared a text from Drake, who’s on tour in Manchester, congratulating him on the wins and Lil Wayne sent out a tweet thanking Chance, Chainz, and the fans for his 5th Grammy award.

As for Drake, he nabbed his second and third GRAMMYs for “Best Rap Song” and “Best Rap/Sung Performance” trophies for his highly-praised single “Hotline Bling.” Drizzy followed his wins with a petty Instagram post that read, “Me and my chain are just here to collect the trophies for Work and Anti…howbowdah.” Many thought it was a shot at Rihanna, who didn’t win any awards.

Lalah Hathaway’s won Best R&B Album for ‘Lalah Hathaway Live’, while her song “Angel” notched the victory for “Best Traditional R&B Performance.” Other winners included Maxwell, who won “Best R&B song” for “Lake By the Ocean” and Beyoncé’s little sister, Solange won “Best R&B Performance for “Cranes in the Sky.”

Beyoncé took home two GRAMMYs, one for “Best Music Video” and “Best Urban Contemporary Album.” For Beyoncé, it wasn’t about the two awards she won and more about the big one she didn’t win being, “Album of the Year.”

Adele, who won the award made a graceful speech about Beyoncé and her work on “Lemonade,” saying she thinks it should’ve won the award over ’25’.
