Bruno Mars was one of the most heavily favored artist heading into this Sundays show, he was nominated in all three of the major Grammy categories, Album of the year, record of the year, and song of the year and guess what he just won all 3, but are you really surprised? With an album titled 24K Magic, it makes sense that he would sweep the Grammys and take home ALL the gold. Allow me to break down some stats just in case some haters have something to say.
Bruno took home the Grammy for Song of the Year which recognizes the songwriter and the tune didn’t need long to rise into the top 10 on the Hot 100, where it ended up residing for 28 weeks, making it one of the longest-running top 10 hits of all-time, the track spent a single week at No. 1 and it became the singer’s 7th chart topper.
Bruno shared the honor with his collaborators who joined him on stage to accept his award.
Shortly after that win, Bruno accepted the award for Record of the Year for his hit song, 24K Magic. This is the second time that Bruno has one for record of the year. Previously, he took home the award for ‘Uptown Funk’. In his speech he called the award show producers out for cutting him off on his last speech and then proceeded to thank those who helped make this record possible and in a really sweet moment, he thanked his Dad.
And finally, Bruno Mars anxiously waited to find out if he would be taking home the award for Album of the Year. He had insane competition including Kendrick Lamar’s (DAMN.), Lorde’s (Melodrama), Childish Gambino’s (“Awaken, My Love!”) and Jay-Z’s (4:44)!
Bruno ultimately took home the award and was clearly shocked that he won. He began his speech telling the other nominees that they are the reason why he pulls his hair out in the studio because he knows that they are going to come through with the top shelf artistry and music. He then begins to tell a story about his job at 15 performing in a show and how performing those songs impacted this album.
We have to say a huge congrats to Bruno Mars, but the internet definitely had mixed reactions. Many upset because of the particular artists and albums that he won over. I’ll let you dive into Twitter to see what people had to say about that, but in the meantime what do you guys think? Are you happy that Bruno Mars won all of his awards, but specifically album of the year? And if not who did you want to win?
