It was a night of firsts at the 61st Grammy Awards.

The 61st Grammy Awards occurred last night, and with it brought an evening filled with genuine speeches, memorable performances, and groundbreaking winners. While not everyone who was nominated could take home the proverbial gold-plated gilded gramophone, the ceremony represents an overall win for hip-hop, an overall win for music.

For the first time in history, a rap song claimed victory for “Song of The Year” with Childish Gambino’s pointed, intrepid indictment on the red, white, and blue, “This is America”. Revered for its unabashed dissection of American race relations and how those of power view the disenfranchised, the themes explored on “This is America” were brought to vivid light thanks to the metaphorical journey that is the Hiro Murai-directed video; the song also took home the hardware for “Best Music Video” and “Record of The Year”.

The night of firsts didn’t stop with Glover’s triumphant single and video–it continued fervently with one queen’s momentous victory. Stacked against some truly incredible hip-hop projects–like Mac Miller’s Swimming, Pusha T’s Daytona, and Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap–Cardi B managed to steal the “Best Rap Album of The Year” award with her debut release, Invasion of Privacy. Although this victory is met with some contention, mainly because the true “hip-hop heads” deemed Push’s effort the more-deserving winner, it’s a noteworthy conquest for Cardi B, and music at large, as it isn’t just her first Grammy win–it’s the first time that a woman has been crowned for this category. In a consequential year for women’s rights, saddled by the harrowing stories from the #MeToo movement, Cardi’s hardfought achievement represents women’s strides forward in the entertainment industry; but we’d be dense not to recognize how far we as society have to go.

Joining Childish and Cardi as winners are Drake for “Best Rap Song” with “God’s Plan”; Jay Rock, Kendrick, Future, and James Blake and Anderson .Paak for “Best Rap Performance” with “King’s Dead” and “Bubblin’”, respectively.
