Jazmine Sullivan finally won not one but two Grammy Awards

Doja Cat and SZA won Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their song, Kiss Me More.

According to Pop Sugar, “During their acceptance speech, Doja Cat got emotional about her first-ever Grammy win. After the award was announced, SZA made her way to the stage on crutches (with some help from Lady Gaga), but Doja still made it to the mic after her. It turns out, Doja had decided to go to the bathroom right before the award was announced and had to hurry back to accept it. ‘I have never taken such a fast piss in my whole life,’ she said as she fixed her dress, a little out of breath.”

Additional Grammy Award wins that were iconic were Jay Z, The Weekend, Ari Lennox and Jon Baptiste. Black music >>>>>>>

Congratulations to all the winners and performers.
