Chance The Rapper Makes History At The Grammy Awards

Chance The Rapper won big at last night’s Grammy Awards.

Chance The Rapper has been on the scene a while now but refusing to sign to a label has meant that he really only broke the mainstream this year with the release of Coloring Book. The 23 year-old has now made Grammy history, having been nominated for seven awards and winning three.

He won Best Rap Performance, Best New Artist, and Best Rap Album, making him the first ever artist to win a Grammy for a streaming-only album. For this year’s Awards, the Recording Academy changed the rules to allow streaming only releases to be eligible for the first time.

Beyonce also won big, taking home the award for Best Music Video for “Formation” and Best Urban Contemporary Album for Lemonade. Her sister Solange was awarded Best R&B Performance for “Cranes In The Sky.”
