2019 Edition of the so called Grammy Award which is equally refers to as World biggest Musical Award, was held at staples center, Los Angeles on Sunday.
Drake whose expectations were not met lamented over the relevancy of the award:
After winning Best Rap Song for “God’s Plan,” Drake used his winner’s speech to encourage musicians to work on their craft regardless of recognition.
He said, “All my peers that make music from their heart, that do things pure and tell the truth, I wanna let you know we’re playing an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport,” he said. “So it’s not the NBA, where at the end of the year, you’re holding a trophy because you made the right decisions or won the games.”
“The point is, you’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown,” he continued. “Look, look, if there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this [award] right here. I promise you, you already won.”
At that point, the ceremony’s producers cut his microphone off and went to commercial. It was a much-discussed moment in an otherwise uncontroversial ceremony, where top honors went to Kacey Musgraves’ album Golden Hour and two of its singles, and Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” walked away with four awards, including Song of the Year and Best Music Video. It was the first rap song in history to win Song of the Year at the Grammys.
