Apparently the first time it has gone to an album that wasn't classical or jazz.

Yes, this is a huge deal - not quite as earth-shattering as Dylan being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature a couple of years ago, but considering that nothing even remotely approaching pop music has ever won in this category it's highly significant. (And it's not even for Lamar's best album.)

Grammys, take note.

Yeah, I just somehow knew that Bruno Mars was gonna win even though DAMN was the bookies' favorite.
I feel like that
