Kanye West is the big winner for Best Melodic Rap Performance at the 2022 Grammy Awards.

West received the honor for his song “Hurricane” featuring The Weeknd and Lil Baby at the 64th annual awards on Sunday night (April 3) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Ye and company beat out songs by Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow (“Industry Baby”), J. Cole and Lil Baby (“Pride Is the Devil”), Tyler, the Creator, YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Ty Dolla $ign (“WusYaName”), Kanye West, The Weeknd and Lil Baby (“Hurricane”) and Doja Cat (“Need to Know”).

Last year, Anderson .Paak won the honor for his 2020 anti-police brutality track “Lockdown.” The musician bested DaBaby and Roddy Ricch (“Rockstar”),” Drake and Lil Durk (“Laugh Now Cry Later”), Roddy Ricch (“The Box”) and Travis Scott (“Highest in the Room”).

Anderson dropped the song in response to the global protests and social unrest following the death of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. The drummer, who is also one-half of the soulful duo Silk Sonic, released a remix to “Lockdown” featuring Top Dawg Entertainment’s Jay Rock, Dreamville rapper JID and lyricist Noname.

The song was also nominated in the Best Music Video category but lost to Beyoncé and her daughter, Blue Ivy, who won for “Brown Skin Girl.”

The 2022 Grammy Awards was originally set for Jan. 31 at the Crypto.com Arena (formerly Staples Center) in Los Angeles but was rescheduled and moved to Las Vegas after COVID-19 Omicron rules were implemented in California. Comedian Trevor Noah returned to host the awards ceremony for the second year in a row.

Congrats to Kanye, The Weeknd and Lil Baby for winning Best Melodic Rap Performance.
