The Grammy Awards has always been the pinnacle of the music industry. Every year, all your favourite songs will be put up for nomination in order to win the golden gramophone award, hence the name. However, the past few years have not been kind to the Grammy Awards.
Numerous boycotts and accusations against the Recording Academy have put itself in unfavourable terms with many recording artists, most of which happen to be black. Racist accusations have been at the forefront of the drama that surrounds the Grammy Awards as well as the preference of male recording artists over females.
However, that is a conversation for another time.
Hosted by Alicia Keys, the 15-time Grammy winner took to the stage of the 61st Grammy Awards, which saw the likes of Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) and Kacey Musgraves taking home the most awards with four each. Pulitzer Prize winner Kendrick Lamar was also the talk of the awards, earning himself eight nominations in total. This was followed up by fellow rap/R&B artist Drake with seven nominations.
