Grammy 2019: Drake's "God's plan" is the Best Rap Song of the Year [Actualización]


The music party started!

The Grammy awards, which celebrate its 61st edition, recognize the best recordings, compositions and artists. 105 categories are played in 30 genres of music.

The ceremony is held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, United States and is presented by the singer Alicia Keys.

In the first prize of the televised gala, Lady Gaga and the actor Bradley Cooper were imposed in the section of Duo / Pop Group, with the theme Shallow, of the movie A Star Is Born.

"I was so proud to be part of a film that refers to mental health problems, they are very important, many artists live with them and we have to take care of each other," said Gaga, visibly moved.

Later, Childis Gambino, aka Danny Glover, won with his anthem against racism and police abuse, "This Is America," in the Song of the Year line. The actor also did not go up to receive the prize because he was not present at the gala.

Before the televised gala began, several winners were announced. Ariana Grande, for example, won the Best Pop Album category for her production Sweetener.

And the Mexican singer Luis Miguel won in the category of "Best Regional Album of Mexican Music (including tejana)" for his production Mexico forever.

Luis Miguel competed with First, I am Mexican (Angela Aguilar), Half and half (50 caliber), Totally Juan Gabriel Vol. II (Aida Cuevas), Crossing Borders (The Texmaniacs) and My People's Legends (Mariachi Sol De Mexico by José Hernández).

The Mexican band Zoe won in the category of Urban Album or Alternative Rock.

The nominees

A year after being criticized for being "too white and masculine", the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States seems to have paved the way for hip-hop and women to triumph in the 61st edition of the awards Grammy

The best recordings released between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018 have the American Kendrick Lamar with eight nominations and the Canadian Drake, with seven mentions, as the possible protagonists of the ceremony to be held on the 10th of February, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The equality movement that is influencing all artistic galas triggered female nominations. Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith entered with force to dispute the line of Best New Artist.

Also outstanding is the emergence of Cadi B, which competes in several lines, such as Record of the Year and Album of the Year. And if there was a doubt about the change from one year to another, the inclusion of the soundtrack of Black Panther (Oscar nominated film) as Disco of the Year, it shows that the academy was much more concerned than in previous editions for diversity.
