Grammys 2021: The Full List of Winners

Every one of the 2021 Grammys winners.

The 63rd annual Grammys are here. And it’s one of the most competitive outings in recent memory.

There’s a ton of regulars, of course. Beyoncé leads this year’s nominees with nine nods (including “Song of The Year” and “Record of The Year,” “Best R&B Performance,” and “Best Rap Song,”) followed by a three-way tie between Taylor Swift, Roddy Rich, and Dua Lipa with six nominations each.

This year’s nomieess also notably feature a number of relative newcomers. Fresh off a breakout year, Megan Thee Stallion is up for four awards this year, including “Best New Artist,” “Best Rap Song,” “Best Rap Performance,” and “Record of The Year,” all for the remix of “Savage.” Phoebe Bridgers matches the Houston rapper with her own four nods in “Best New Artist,” “Best Alternative Music Album,” “Best Rock Performance,” and “Best Rock Song,” where she’ll square up with Fiona Apple’s “Shameika.”

Amongst this year’s Grammys categories, “Best Rap Album” will surely be one to watch with Freddie Gibbs and Alchemist’s Alfredo, Nas’ King’s Disease, Jay Electronica’s A Written Testimony, Royce Da 5’9″‘s The Allegory, and D Smoke’s Black Habits, all contending for hip-hop’s institutionally recognized crown. Whoever wins will take home the first golden gramaphone of their career.

Yeah, it’s a lot to follow. But we’ll be keeping track of all the Grammys action throughout the night and updating this space as winners are announced.
