D’Angelo & Common Add Grammy Awards To Their Trophy Cases
After a 15 year break, D’Angelo won two Grammy awards tonight (February 15). The RCA Records artist (and his band, The Vanguard) took home the honors in response to 2014’s Black Messiah album. The awards included “Best R&B Album” and “Best R&B Song.” The latter trophy belonged to the album’s premiere single, “Really Love.”
The awards were D’Angelo’s first wins since 2001. That year, the Virginia native took home the same “Best R&B Album” award for Voodoo. He also garnered “Best R&B Performance” for single, “Untitled (How Does It Feel?).”

Previously, the Def Jam Records veteran won for Erykah Badu collaboration “Love Of My Life” (“Best R&B Song”) and “South Side” (“Best Rap Performance By Rap Duo Or Group”).
