The 59th Annual Grammy Awards -Where Do I Start

Shares 7

Man, I’m sitting here trying to get myself together to type this post.

Where do I start!!!! The 59th Annual Grammy Awards Show was amaze balls.  Of course my favorite part of the show was Queen Bey. I passed out, got up, then passed out again. Motherhood looks soooo freaking good on her. Beyonce` always  brings 110% to any performance and tonight she did not disappoint.  So,  I know I’m not the only one that  held their breath as she leaned back in that chair. I was like, whose bright idea was that?  I love the look of Jay and Blue as they watch her handle business on stage.  Beautiful…Beautiful…Beautiful. It took me a minute to get myself together afterwards.  Beyonce` took home Grammys for, Best Urban Contemporary Album and Video of the Year.

Black dads rock! Daddy duties where on full display during the Grammy’s.  Jay-Z held it down and kept a mindful eye on his baby girl Blue. While,  ScHoolboy Q and daughter Joy Hanley  looked absolutely adorable. Both Blue and Joy adorned a pink Gucci suite with black trim. I think I need to go shopping in their closets. Who wore it better? They both rocked it. Speaking of fashion, I really loved Rihanna’s look for tonight’s Grammy’s.  Furthermore, she looked so care free and her hair was simply beautiful. The fashion for tonight’s 59th Annual Grammy Awards show did not disappoint.

Now, lets talk  Mr. Bruno  Mars.  I mean, he literally took my breath away during tonight’s 59th Annual Grammy Awards Show.  I screamed so loud in my house,  I had cover my own darn mouth.  I’m leary  about folk doing Prince tributes.   Partly because, Prince was such a talented artist, that you can’t have just any ole body doing his tribute.  Well, kudos to the Grammy Committee because they actually got this one right. Honey, because Bruno Mars  along with Morris Day and the Time, shut it down. Besides, Bruno is not any ole body.  Furthermore, it was Buno’s solo guitar performance that really sealed the deal for me. His guitar solo gave me hot flashes.  For a moment, it was as if he channeled Prince himself.  He snatched my edges, new growth, old growth and everything else. I mean, he really did  a phenomenal job with his tribute to Prince.

Now on too Chance The Rapper.   I don’t know him personally, but I am so proud of him.   I’m just glad that downloads can’t be scratched, because I can’t count how many times I have listened to the album Coloring Book.  Also, his story is absolutely amazing.  What Chance The Rapper has managed to achieve is similar in feat of Master P getting that really large distribution deal for No Limit Records.

This is important because, such a deal was unheard of during the time No Limit Records entered the rap game. Chance The Rapper has really provided the blue print for any independent rapper coming behind him.  Especially relevant, during tonight’s 59th Annual Grammy Awards Show, Chance The Rapper took home Grammys for Best New Rapper, Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Performance.   Most note worthy, is the fact that he was deserving of each and everyone of them.

Another great moment for me, was Solange winning  for Best R&B Performance, for Cranes in the Sky. Whelp folk, I think I’m going to call it a night. It’s been real. I hope you enjoyed the 59th Annual Grammy Awards Show as much as I did. Oh wait. I’m so out of order. A Tribe Called Quest! Can you dig it! Because baby, they showed up and showed out. #AgentOrange and #Resist, that’s all I’m going to say about that!
