Bruno Mars Wins 6 Grammys, Kendrick Lamar Nabs 5

  /  01.28.2018

Magic was definitely in the air for Bruno Mars on Music’s Biggest Night. The 24K Magic star walked away with a total of six Grammys, the most of any artist this year.

His win total was all the more impressive because it included the night’s biggest awards—Record of the Year (“24K Magic”), Song of the Year (“That’s What I Like”), and Album of the Year (24K Magic). He also took home Best R&B Performance (“That’s What I Like”) and Best R&B Album (24K Magic).

Closing out the evening with Album of the Year, Mars reflected on his journey as a musician. He recalled performing songs that were written by the likes of Babyface, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Teddy Riley when he was younger. “I’d like to dedicate this award to them,” he said. “They are my heroes. They are my teachers. They laid the foundation. This album wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for these guys…and you know I had to sprinkle a little Mars sauce on it.”

Additionally, 24K Magic won Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, though that award didn’t go to Bruno. Instead, it went home with Serban Ghenea, John Hanes, Charles Moniz, and Tom Coyne.

The evening wasn’t just about hardware for Mars, who also tapped Cardi B for a ’90s-themed performance of “Finesse.”

Another big winner was Kendrick Lamar, who took home five awards, including Best Music Video (“HUMBLE.”), Best Rap Performance (“HUMBLE.”), Best Rap Song (“HUMBLE.”), Best Rap Album (DAMN.), and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (“LOYALTY.” featuring Rihanna).

Two of the night’s biggest snubs were JAY-Z and SZA. Hov led all nominees with eight, while the TDE songstress was the frontrunner amongst women with five, but both were completely shut out of their categories.
