Skrillex Passes Daft Punk as Dance Music Artist With Most Grammy Wins
The OWSLA leader collected his seventh and eighth wins for best dance recording and best dance/electronic album with partner-in-crime Diplo, who notched his first two victories.
After "Where Are U Now" claimed the first dance prize, the two made sure to thank their team and shout out the other nominees in the category. Watch their acceptance speech below:
"It’s just the beginning," Sonny Moore states. He later took to Twitter to thank Poo Bear, who co-wrote the winning song, in addition to the majority of Bieber’s Purpose album.
we didn't plan a speech , I'm bad at speeches but I wanted to make one more shout out to the mother fuckn man @poobear ❤️❤️----❤️❤️— SKRILLEX (@Skrillex) February 15, 2016
Daft Punk now trails Moore with six Grammy wins, having hauled in four of them in 2014 for their single "Get Lucky" and album Random Access Memories. Close behind are The Chemical Brothers, who have scored four Grammy Awards to date, three of them in a dance category.
