Usually when artists are nominated for a Grammy award, there can only be one winner. However, in two categories, there was a tie.
The Grammy Awards for Best Rap Performance and Best Traditional R&B Performance both had more than one winner.
The group of four was up for their song “King’s Dead” from Black Panther: The Album while .Paak was up for his track “Bubblin.”
Best Traditional R&B Performance went to both Leon Bridges for “Bet Ain’t Worth The Hand” andPJ Morton Featuring Yebba for “How Deep Is Your Love.”
The beat Bettye LaVette, Major and Charlie Wilson featuring Lalah Hathaway.
There have been ties in Grammy history before, but it’s definitely a rarity. Many people didn’t even know a tie was possible. See how people reacted to the tie on Twitter.

Since when can you tie for a Grammy…

Best rap performance at the #Grammys is a tie between Anderson .Paak’s Bubblin’ and Kendrick Lamar’s King. I think that’s only the 22nd ever tie in Grammy history.

Not mad at a tie because King’s Dead was a great song but Bubbling being what it ties with and not SICKO MODE makes no sense but that’s the Grammy’s for you lol
