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?).”

Throughout his 20-plus-year career, D’Angelo now has four awards.

In the Hip-Hop space, Common won another award for 2014’s “Glory.” The John Legend collaboration won for “Best Song Written For Visual Media,” for its inclusion of the film Selma. 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”).
