Grammys 2021: Megan Thee Stallion Wins Best New Artist
And the Best New Artist Grammy goes to: Megan Thee Stallion! The Houston rap superstar, who is the first female rapper to win this category since Lauryn Hill in 1999, accepted her award outdoors due to COVID precautions. She recognized her fellow nominees, thanked God, her mom, her record label, and more. “It’s been a hell of a year, but we made it!” she said. Megan also won a Best Rap Performance Grammy today for her Beyoncé collab “Savage,” which is up for Record Of The Year as well.
