Kendrick Lamar Wins 5 Grammy Awards


 

Monday’s Grammys were “Alright” for Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift, whose “1989” won her a second album of the year for “1989,” her multi-hit switch from country to pop.

Compton rapper Lamar was the night’s top winner, taking home five awards but losing in the major categories. Swift’s “1989” topped his “To Pimp a Butterfly” in the Album of the Year field, and Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” beat out his “Alright” in the Song of the Year race.

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” took home the Record of the Year trophy.

Swift’s Album of the Year victory made her the first female performer in Grammy history to win that category twice — her album “Fearless” won in 2010 — and allowed her to make a strong statement just days after Kanye West made worldwide headlines for trying to take credit for her fame in his song “Famous.”
