Watch: Kendrick Lamar, U2, Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Childish Gambino & Sza Perform At The Grammys

Kendrick Lamar opened The Grammys’ with U2 and a medley of “XXX,” “DNA” and “King’s Dead” that had brief breaks with words from Dave Chappelle. He took home Grammys for Best Rap Performance, Best Rap/Sung Performance with Rihanna, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album. Bruno Mars performed “Finesse” with Cardi B and he also had a big night with six wins including Album Of The Year. Childish Gambino had five nominations and took home a statue for Best Traditional R&B Performance. He performed “Terrified” but told the media later that he would be retiring the Gambino persona. Fans were dismayed that Sza did not take home any awards after having her breakout year and five nominations. She gave a performance of “Broken Clocks.” Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” seemed destined for recognition but Kendrick Lamar took both categories. See the full list of winners here.

Kendrick Lamar and Sza are starting 2018 with “All The Stars” from the Black Panther soundtrack. Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony Tiffith are producing and curating the music for the highly anticipated film. Director Ryan Coogler picked Lamar and he worked with the rapper and Tiffith on the soundtrack. Lamar stated in a press release:

“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director. The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.”

Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as the T’Challa king of the fictional Wakanda and it is the most anticipated film of 2018. Several Facebook groups are talking about the movie and have already scheduled screenings. Discussion groups are popping up at colleges and social media is rife with references and hashtags to the film. A Black superhero and an all-Black cast is unusual and despite the existence of other Black characters like Luke Cage and Black Lightning, Panther has garnered the most attention.
