Taylor Swift, who won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year for Folklore, becomes, after Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra and Paul Simon, the first female artist to win three times the award for Album of the Year (she had already received this coveted Grammy for Fearless in 2010 and 1989 in 2016.)
Rapper Meghan Thee Stallion received the prestigious Grammy for “revelation of the year”, a first for a rap artist since Lauryn Hill in 1999. The artist was also awarded for her duet with Cardi B on WAP and her hit Savage with Beyoncé’s participation on a remix, which won her the “best rap performance” and “best rap song” awards.
