Chance The Rapper Wins Big At The GRAMMYs

Chance the Rapper made history at Sunday's 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards. The Chicago native became the first artist to win, and be nominated, without selling physical copies of his music. Chance took home the GRAMMY for "Best New Artist" and went on to win two more awards, including the prestigious "Best Rap Album" and "Best Rap Perfomance." Chance made sure to dedicate the wins to every Indie artist as he continues to make a name despite any official label affiliation.

Meanwhile, David Bowie posthumously dominated throughout a few different categories. The late great tied with Adele's five GRAMMY wins from the night. Solange followed in her sister's footsteps and is now a GRAMMY Award-winning artist. Cage the Elephant also secured its first win for "Best Rock Album."
