After 13 Nominations, R&B Veteran Ledisi Wins First GRAMMY at 2021 Ceremony

Published: Sunday 14th Mar 2021 by Rashad

Wild card indeed.

Ledisi‘s powerhouse vocals have powered her to 13 nominations over the course of her 21-year career, with the earliest dating back to a Best New Artist mention at the 2008 ceremony.

As fans and critics alike have cried foul over the diva’s unceremonious snubs year-after-year, 2021 has brought with it a shocking upset in her favor.

More inside:

No stranger to the Best Traditional R&B Performance category as she was nominated in 2018 for her song ‘All The Way,’ that loss to Childish Gambino‘s hit, ‘Redbone,’ was avenged at the 63rd annual GRAMMYs Sunday night (March 14).

There, the 48-year-old – nominated for her latest hit ‘Anything For You’ (found aboard her 2020 album ‘Wild Card’) – bested the likes of Chloe X Halle, Yebba, Mykal Kilgore, and The Baylor Project to nab the 2021 Best Traditional R&B Performance GRAMMY.

The golden grammophone win puts an end to a (much undeserved) losing streak for Ledisi.
