Female Acts, Rap Songs Win Big At The Grammy Awards

LOS ANGELES – Women and rap triumphed at the Grammys on Sunday as female acts took home top prizes, including album of the year and best new artist, and Childish Gambino made history when his hit “This Is America” became the first rap-based track to win record and song of the year. Kacey Musgraves’ country-pop release, “Golden Hour,” won album of the year, and British singer Dua Lipa won best new artist – a year after female voices were somewhat muted at the 2018 ceremony and the Grammys were criticized for the small number of female nominees. “I think women have a really necessary perspective, to art, to music,” Musgraves said backstage. Five of the eight album-of-the-year nominees were women, and six women were nominated for best new artist.
