LOS ANGELES (AP) – Rap artists and women have felt shunned by the Grammy Awards in recent years. But this year, they both took center stage.
Childish Gambino’s disturbing look at race relations, “This is America,” won record and song of the year on Sunday’s telecast. It was the first time a rap-based song won both of those awards, considered, with album of the year, the recording industry’s most prestigious.
Kacey Musgraves won top album and matched Childish Gambino with four Grammys total.
