Childish Gambino Wins Record Of The Year For "This Is America" | 2019 GRAMMYs
Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover just won Record Of The Year for "This Is America." It is the fourth win of the night for Glover, as the track also won Song Of The Year, Best Music Video and Best Rap/Sung Performance.
In the artist's absence, Ali and Göransson accepted the award and spoke on the group's behalf.
"No matter where you're born or what country you're from, you connect with 'This Is America,' it speaks to people, it connects right to your soul. It calls out injustice, celebrates life and reunites us all at the same time," Göransson said in his powerful speech.
Göransson, a Swedish-born, Los Angeles-based songwriter and producer is a long-time collaborator of Glover's, having worked on all three Childish Gambino studio albums, including the last LP, 2016's GRAMMY-nominated Awaken My Love.
Glover earned his first GRAMMY win at the 60th GRAMMY Awards, for Best Traditional R&B Performance for "Redbone," from Awaken, My Love! He received his first GRAMMY nominations for Best Rap Album for his sophmore LP, Because The Internet, and Best Rap Performance for "3005," from the album, at the 57th GRAMMY Awards.
The big track beat out fellow Record Of The Year nominees: Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin ("I Like It"), Brandi Carlile ("The Joke"), Drake ("God's Plan"), Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ("Shallow"), Kendrick Lamar and SZA ("All The Stars"), Post Malone and 21 Savage ("Rockstar"), Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey ("The Middle").
