Canadian producer Kaytranada became a first-time Grammy winner when he took home two awards on Sunday.
The producer scored the Best Dance Recording Grammy for his 2019 single “10%” featuring Kali Uchis, and also made history by being the first Black lead artist to win the Best Dance/Electronic Album award with his sophomore album Bubba. The LP was nominated alongside Madeon’s second album Good Faith, Arca’s KiCk I, Disclosure’s Energy, and Baauer’s Planet’s Mad.
“This is crazy, this is insane,” Kaytranada gushed in the acceptance video that followed his Best Dance/Electronic Album win. “I’m taking this one back to Montréal. Thank you to my family—thank you to everybody! Peace!” Uchis also posted a video on Instagram of her Facetiming and screaming with Kaytranada to celebrate their win for “10%.”
Kaytranada dropped his collab-heavy sophomore album Bubba in 2019. The LP featured guest appearances from GoldLink, Pharrell Williams, SiR, Masego and Tinashe. Last month, he dropped the song “Caution” and teased remixes for Bubba.
