Young Thug won his first GRAMMY for “Song of the Year” – one of the awards top honors- at the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards, for his songwriting work on Childish Gambino’s “This is America”.

Released in May last year, the song and it’s accompanying visual quickly went viral, with subject matter that touches on gun violence, racism and discrimination within America. The song has racked up nearly 500 million views on YouTube, and makes history as the first rap song to ever win the award.

“This is America” was nominated alongside other hits like Drake’s “God’s Plan”, Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up”, Black Panther single, “All The Stars”, Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood”, “The Joke” by Brandi Carlile, A Star Was Born’s “Shallow,” and Zedd’s “The Middle.”

Young Thug also performed alongside Camila Cabello at the ceremony, performing their record breaking song, “Havana” for the broadcast’s cold open. The song, which hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts, was also nominated for a GRAMMY for “Best Pop Solo Performance.” The live performance also included appearances from Jay Balvin, Ricky Martin and Arturo Sandoval.

“Performing on the GRAMMY stage was such an honor.” – Young Thug

Young Thug also walked the carpet at the event, spending time with Bebe Rexha and interviewing with GRAMMY winning rapper, Eve for CBS.
