Grammys 2021: Full list of winners

Nigerian singer Burna Boy

Los Angeles, US |  THE INDEPENDENT & XINHUA  | Nigerian singer Burna Boy win his first ever Grammy under the “Best global Music Album” category for the “Twice As Tall” 2020 project, at last night’s 63rd Grammy Awards main event.

Meanwhile, women dominated the 63rd Grammy Awards Sunday as Taylor Swift won her third career Album of the Year prize, Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson won Song of the Year, and Billie Eilish won Record of the Year.

Females take the Big Four

The three awards plus Best New Artist are called as the “Big Four” categories in the music industry’s biggest night in the United States. All of them were shared by female artists at the big event this year.

Overall, Grammys 2021 were handed out in 83 categories spanning 30 fields of music released between Sept. 1, 2019 and Aug. 31, 2020. The awards ceremony, originally scheduled for Jan. 31, was postponed six weeks over concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sunday’s show in Los Angeles Convention Center was opened by Megan Thee Stallion, a U.S. female rapper, singer and songwriter, who took Best New Artist first, then picked up Rap Song of the Year with Beyonce for “Savage.”

Beyonce makes history

Beyonce made history with 28 career wins, the most for any singers or female artists in history, by grabbing Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl,” Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “Savage,” and Best R&B Performance for “Black Parade.”

Beyonce came into the prime time show with a total of nine nominations across eight categories, the most of any artist this year. The nine new nominations already made Beyonce the most-nominated female artist of all time since her debut with Destiny’s Child more than two decades ago.

“As an artist, I believe it’s my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times. And it’s been such a difficult time. So, I wanted to uplift, encourage, celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world,” Beyonce said at her historic night.

Taylor Swift, 31, who earned six nominations this year, second only to Beyonce’s nine nominations, won the Album of the Year, making history to be the first female artist to snag the award for Album of the Year three times.

Swift, previously won the award for “Fearless” in 2010, and for “1989” in 2016, was known not only for her talent but also for her brave critics against “toxic male privilege” in the music industry.

Everything Eilish wanted

Billie Eilish, 19, won another prominent award, Record of the Year, for “Everything I Wanted.” She had four nominations this year.

“I Can’t Breathe” by U.S. singer-songwriter Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson, known professionally as H.E.R., won Song of the Year.

The 23-year-old girl beat out a group of nominees that included Beyonce, Roddy Ricch, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, and Billie Eilish to win the prize.

In her acceptance speech, H.E.R. noted that she wrote the song after being inspired by George Floyd’s last words as the African American struggled to breathe while a white police officer kneeled on his neck. H.E.R. said that her dad, who was the first person she played the song for, cried when he first heard it.

“Remember, we are the change we wish to see,” she said. “And that fight that we had in us the summer of 2020? Keep that same energy.”
