If you’re a fan of music, the Recording Academy’s Grammy awards show is the premier music award each year. This year’s awards are surprisingly hip-hop focused for a group that typically ignored rappers and rap music.
Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, and Jay-Z all have nominations for both album and record of the year. Going even further, “Despacito” stands out for being a Spanish-language song.
It’s a sign that the Grammys are becoming more diverse, beating the Academy Awards to the punch. However, in a #MeToo society, it’s telling that the major awards are mostly male.
Still, it should be a great show for any music fan to watch, and the red carpet is where you’ll see all the new fashions and hear from the stars before the show. Check out the full press release below.
