  The 2018 Grammy award show was home to multiple political side comments, a #Metoo performance by Ke$ha, an insert from Hillary Clinton, and an overall take over by R&B artist Bruno Mars.

  Mars has won a total of 11 Grammys, 16 ASCAP Pop Music awards, three Guinness World Records, eight MTV awards, five Teen Choice Awards, and dozens of other awards from all over the world. In other words, he is successful.

  However, on Jan. 28, Mars won six awards in one night. His album “24K Magic” won three Grammys for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best R&B Album. The single “That’s What I Like” also won three Grammys for Song of the Year, Best R&B Song, and Best R&B Performance.

  Mars has won multiple Grammys in the past including “Just the Way You Are” in 2011 for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, “Unorthodox Jukebox” in 2014 for Best Pop Vocal Album, “Uptown Funk” in 2016 for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and “25” in 2017 for Album for the Year.

  On social media, some are calling his Grammy for Album of the Year a letdown. There were high hopes for the hip-hop community with the nominations of JAY-Z’s “4:44” and Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN” into the Album of the Year category.

  Lamar has had three pieces hit number one on Billboard Hot 100. These include the Grammy-nominated “DAMN” which hit number one on May 6, 2017 “To Pimp a Butterfly” on Apr. 4, 2015; and “untitled unmastered” on Mar. 26, 2016.
