Childish Gambino's "This is America" became first rap-based song to win record and song of the year, and Cardi B was the first solo female to win best rap album.

Gambino and Kacey Musgraves both led the way with four Grammys, and Duo Lipa won best new artist while throwing shade at outgoing Grammy head.

A songwriter and producer on "This is America" said backstage that he was surprised the victories were so historic, considering how rap has permeated the industry.

Ludwig Goransson said: "It's about time something like this happened with the Grammys as well."
