Childish Gambino won record of the year at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Feb. 10) for his political anthem "This Is America," making history with the first rap song to ever take home the honor, and rounding out a night of wins for the multi-talented Atlanta rapper.
With Gambino -- a.k.a. Donald Glover -- notably absent from tonight's festivities, the prestigous award was accepted on behalf of co-writer and producer Ludwig Göransson, engineer/mixer Derek "MixedByAli" Ali and mastering engineer Mike Bozzi.
"Creating music with Childish Gambino has been one of the greatest stories of my life," Göransson told the crowd. "As a kid growing up in Sweden, loving American music, I always dreamt of migrating here, working with an artist like Donald Glover.
