The 61st Grammy Awards took place in Los Angeles. On the eve of the official awards night, the 2019 Grammy sub-categories found the winner. Winning Taylor Swift in the Best Pop Vocal Album category, Ariana Grande won the first Grammy award in her singing career.
In the Best Pop Vocal Album category, Ariana Grande received the first Grammy gold in her singing career with the album “Sweetener”. The singer surpassed a series of popular rivals like Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, Kelly Clarkson or P!nk.
At the same time, Ariana Grande’s victory also caused Taylor Swift to miss the opportunity to become one of the top ten female Grammy Award winners in history. Best Pop Vocal Album with Reputation album is the only nomination that Taylor Swift received at the Grammy 2019. Therefore, Ariana Grande won the Best Pop Vocal Album category, meaning that the country music princess did not win a Grammy award this year.
Ariana Grande’s victory at Grammy 2019 surprised many fans. Because before that, the female singer had a rift with the organizers of this year’s awards ceremony. Because she could not perform the 7 Rings song at the Grammy stage and she was asked to sing another song, Ariana Grande refused to appear at the awards night. She even argued with the organizer on the media. Audiences around the world regret because Ariana cannot directly touch the first prestigious gold cup in her career.
Sweetener is Ariana Grande’s fourth studio album. It was released on August 17, 2018. This album has held a series of records of digital music streaming on platforms like Spotify or Apple Music. Not only that, Sweetener also won high rankings on Billboard charts. Apart from that, many songs included in this album also received positive reviews from prestigious critics. The Sweetener is said to be the album that hides Ariana Grande’s musical maturity.
