The 59th Grammy Awards have officially commenced, and the first award up for grabs was the honor of “Best New Artist.”


A lot of people assumed it might be The Chainsmokers thanks to their massive string of chart-topping singles, but crowd favorite and free music advocate Chance The Rapper has taken home the evening’s esteemed opening award.
