LOS ANGELES (AP) — An overwhelmed Cardi B won her first Grammy Award on Sunday night, making history as the first solo woman to win best rap album.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Boi-1da considers himself a sidekick to some of the biggest music performers, from Drake to Rihanna, and he is now being thrust into the Grammy spotlight for his standout production work.
There are a number of words you could use to describe Maroon 5's halftime show performance: Empty. Boring. Basic. Sleepy. Skippable. Unfulfilling. Unnecessary.
And those who came to help save the day didn't do their jobs: If you blinked you would have missed that Travis Scott and Big Boi performed. Even the gospel choir singer was a struggle — clearly they let the wrong one sing lead Sunday.
ATLANTA (AP) — Maroon 5 has canceled its news conference to discuss the band's Super Bowl halftime performance, choosing to not meet with reporters as most acts have done.
The NFL announced Tuesday that "the artists will let their show do the talking as they prepare to take the stage this Sunday."

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — When Drake came to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena earlier this year, there was one name the rap star couldn't stop saying on stage. He told the sold-out crowd that as soon as his tour was over, "I'm going right back to the studio with Tay Keith."
22-year-old Tay Keith, if you're unfamiliar, is a hip-hop producer. And in his field, no one's had a bigger breakout year.
