Awards


kanye west all day

Reports circulated this morning that Kanye West would perform a brand new song at the 2015 BRIT Awards today, and lo and behold, he just did. Yeezy took to the stage in fiery fashion at London’s O2 Arena moments ago to debut his long-awaited and much-discussed song “All Day,” which features Theophilus London and rising St. Paul, MN rapper Allan Kingdom. UK Grime artists like Skepta (who Kanye shouted out towards the end of the performance), Jammer, Novelist, Stormzy and Krept and Konan were all on stage, too.

“All Day” is the fourth preview of Ye’s upcoming seventh album following “Only One,” “FourFiveSeconds” featuring Rihanna and Paul McCartney and the Sia and Vic Mensa-assisted “Wolves.”

Watch Kanye perform “All Day” below…

Music’s biggest night is now wrapped up — and as you know — a U.K. artist shined the most during the 57th annual Grammy Awards. Sam Smith received the most wins of the night, leaving with four GRAMMYs including “Record of the Year,” “Song of the Year,” and “Best Pop Vocal Album.” Right behind the “Stay With Me” singer was Beyoncé and Pharrell — who both recieved three trophies each. During the pre-show, where most of the Rap and R&B categories were handed out, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar took home two GRAMMYs each.

While Kendrick Lamar’s “i” won “Best Rap Song” and “Best Rap Performance,” Eminem got top honor with “Best Rap Album” for The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Among the red carpet arrivals, various performances, and near stage crash by Kanye West, one highlight rap fans enjoyed was during a segment honoring those who passed away in the past year. A$AP Mob co-founder A$AP Yams was mentioned during the touching moment, which came as a great surprise to his fans.

During commercial breaks, Kanye and Taylor Swift appeared to have became friends, Ed Sheeran caught up with Jay Z and Nas, and Rihanna had an adorable moment with Blue Ivy Carter backstage. Check out all the winners and backstage/behind-the-scenes photos from the GRAMMYs below.

That moment almost happened again at the 57th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night. The legendary Prince presented the “Album of the Year” category, where Beck’s Morning Phase LP beat out a big-name list that included Beyonce, Sam Smith and Pharrell. As Beck was accepting his Grammy from Prince, Kanye West hopped on stage — and almost gave what we thought was going to be a repeat of Yeezy’s stage crashing during Taylor Swift’s speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs.

With a smile on his face, Kanye came up to the stage and quickly went back to his seat, leading many to believe he was just playfully joking. Beck even asked Kanye to come back and join him, which the rapper passed on doing. The moment will easily become the most talked about moment this week.
