Throw a party just for Childish Gambino, everybody! His song "This Is America" just made history for being the first rap track to receive the Song Of The Year award from the Recording Academy!
The Grammys also recognized the 2018 viral hit as Record of the Year, Best Rap/Sung Performance, and Best Music Video. Unfortunately, Childish Gambino a.k.a. Donald Glover was a no-show at the ceremony.
Meanwhile, Drake was around to receive the Best Rap Song award for "God's Plan".
