Sony Music Celebrates the 65th GRAMMY Awards.
The 65th annual GRAMMY Awards were held last night in Los Angeles and celebrated a wide variety of our Sony Music artists, including honors and acknowledgements for our talent across the top awards of the evening. This recognition of the incredible creative achievements of our artists caps a year in which they dazzled fans with many of the biggest chart successes and most acclaimed releases of 2022.
Beyoncé made GRAMMY history as she became the most awarded artist of all time and captured four honors, tying the most of the night, including Dance/Electronic Album and R&B Song. Harry Styles performed “As It Was” onstage and was awarded the coveted Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, capping off his own record-breaking year.
Maverick City Music, Kirk Franklin, Ozzy Osbourne and Willie Nelson won multiple honors while The GRAMMYs recognized Adele for Best Pop Solo Performance, and Orchard partner and Rimas Entertainment artist Bad Bunny, who led the album charts last year, was honored for Best Música Urbana Album.
From Future, Tems and Rosalía to Steve Lacy and Natalia Lafourcade, our recognized artists symbolized a veritable cross-section of genres – a testament to the breadth of the creative reach of our Company.
SME artists also gave highlight performances throughout the evening. Rimas artist Bad Bunny kicked off the ceremony with a dynamic performance of “El Apagón” and “Después de la Playa.” Luke Combs delivered “Going, Going, Gone,” Steve Lacy shared his “Bad Habit” and DJ Khaled and friends closed out the night with a star studded version of “God Did.”
Last night we celebrated not only those who stood on stage to perform and accept trophies, but also the accomplishments of our teams who support and amplify the ground-breaking work of our artists and creators. We are a truly global business. Now more than ever we have divisions from around the world delivering massive success from superstars and developing artists alike, requiring amazing effort as one team.
As a company, we should feel very proud of the collective accomplishments of our artists and the impact their music has on reflecting and defining our culture.
