Childish Gambino on Sunday grabbed his fourth Grammy of the night, the coveted Record of the Year prize for best overall song, for his politically charged hit "This Is America."
The trap gospel song packed with social commentary from Childish Gambino - the alter ego of actor and recording artist Donald Glover - beat fellow category heavyweights Drake, Cardi B and Lady Gaga to nab the award.
