‘I want to thank my mama’: Full 2021 Grammy winner’s list

Big wins for Megan Thee Stallion, Beyoncé, Nas, Ledisi, Kanye West and others

Three Grammy winners have reason to especially celebrate tonight. Nas and Ledisi, who were overlooked after 14 and 13 nominations respectively won their first Grammy Awards tonight. And Beyoncé ties with Quincy Jones as the most awarded living musician with 28 total awards.

H.E.R took home one of the night’s most prestigious awards for Song of the Year with “I Can’t Breathe” a song written in response to last summer’s racial protests. Megan Thee Stallion won three awards, including Best New Artist and two with Beyoncé for the “Savage” remix – Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, making the duo the first female artists to win the prize in that category.
