2024 Grammy Awards Recap: Victoria Monét And SZA Are Big Winners + More

The 2024 Grammys was a magical night due to the Black girl magic that took over. Our favorite artists, from SZA to Victoria Monét, took home more than one Grammy, showing us two things: Black women run the world, and R&B ain't dead. Victoria was nominated for seven awards and won three: Best R&B Album, Best New Artist, and Best Engineered Album: Non-Classical. This comes on the heels of her massively successful album, Jaguar II, which included the anthem "On My Mama," and after being turned down to perform at the 2023 VMAs. These are the singer/ songwriter's first Grammys, making her a shining example of there's something greater on the other side.

During her acceptance speech for Best New Artist, she had this to say. "I just want to say to everybody who has a dream, I want you to look at this as an example. I moved to L.A. in 2009, and I like to liken myself to a plant who was planted, and you can look at the music industry as soil. And you can look at it as dirty, or it can be looked at as a source of nutrients and water. And my roots have been growing underneath the ground unseen for so long. And I feel like today I’m sprouting finally above ground.”


Our girl SZA also snagged three Grammys thanks to her chart-topping SOS album. The R&B darling won Best R&B Song for "Snooze," Best Progressive R&B Album, and Best Pop Duo/ Group for "Ghost In The Machine" featuring Phoebe Bridgers. SZA held back tears as she gave her acceptance speech for Best R&B Song. After thanking her parents and Top Dawg (her label), she said, "I just.. I'm sorry. I'm just really overwhelmed. You don't really understand. I came really, really far, and I can't believe this is happening, and it feels very fake."

Singer and actress Coco Jones also won her first Grammy. The Bel-airactress won the prestigious award for Best R&B Performance for her soulful hit "ICU."
