Los Angeles: Chance the Rapper won the Grammy for best rap album on Sunday night, something that he was not expecting at all.
“I didn’t think we were gonna win this one,” Chance said while accepting the gold saxophone for his album “Coloring Book”.
“It’s another one, baby!” the 23-year-old musician yelled to the crowd after thanking his team, his family and friends in his acceptance speech.
This was Chance’s third win at the award show. Earlier in the show, the “Blessings” rapper accepted the award for best new artist. Before the show began, he also got the Grammy for best rap performance for his hit track “No Problem”.
“Coloring Book” made headlines when it was first released back in May by becoming the first album to make it into the top 10 on the Billboard 200 based entirely on streams.
The other nominations in the category included the Kanye West’s “The Life Of Pablo”, Drake’s “Views”, De La Soul’s ” …And The Anonymous Nobody”, DJ Khaled’s “Major Key” and Schoolboy Q’s “Blank Face LP”.
The award show, honouring the best of music around the world, is taking place at the Staples Centre here.
