Chance the Rapper Wins First Grammy for a Streaming-Only Album



It's only the second month of 2017 and Chance the Rapper is taking W's already.  2016 was a great year for Chance and last night at the Grammy's was proof.  When it was all said and done, Chance walked away from the show with 3 Grammy awards in his hands.  He won Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Album.  Also, he had a captivating performance that included a small gospel choir.  On top of all this, he made history last night.  His album "Coloring Book" became the first streaming-only album to ever win a grammy award.  This is a historic step in music and really shows not only how powerful of an artist Chance is, but also how relevant streamed music has become. Services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and more have become the go-to way to listen to music, and its seeming that it's the future of the music industry.  What's even more impressive however is that Chance's album was put out for free!  Chance definitely has an exciting career ahead of him; check out some snippets of his performance from last night.
