The Reel 360 team is very happy this morning that Silk Sonic’s “Leave The Door Open” won the Grammy for Record Of The Year at the 2022 Grammys. This award represents a win in all four nominated categories, adding to wins for Song Of The Year and Best R&B Song.

“We are really trying our hardest to remain humble at this point – but in the industry we call that clean sweep!” Anderson .Paak enthused. “For all the other nominees, y’all know we love y’all. Drinks on Silk Sonic tonight!”

ABBA’s I Still Have Faith In You, Freedom by Jon Batiste, I Get A Kick Out Of You by Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Peaches by Justin Bieber ft. Daniel Casear & Giveon, Brandi Carlile’s Right On Time, Kiss Me More by Doja Cat ft. SZA, Happier Than Ever by Billie Eilish, Montero (Call Me By Your Name) by Lil Nas X and drivers license by Olivia Rodrigo were the other nominees in the prestigious category.

Jon Batiste’s We Are wins Album of the Year

The coveted award marks the singer’s fifth win of the 2022 Grammys.

Walking up to the stage practically in disbelief, Batiste delivered perhaps one of the most moving speeches of the night upon accepting his award. “I believe this to my core — there is no best musician, best artist, best dancer, best actor,” he said. “The creative arts are subjective and they reach people at a point in their lives when they need it most. It’s like a song, or an album, is made and it almost has a radar to find the person when they need it the most.”

Batiste thanked everyone who was involved in the making of WE ARE, including his grandfather and his nephews. Beating out Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga‘s Love For SaleJustin Bieber‘s JusticeDoja Cat‘s Planet HerBillie Eilish‘s Happier Than EverH.E.R.‘s Back Of My MindLil Nas X‘s MonteroOlivia Rodrigo‘s SOURTaylor Swift‘s evermore, and Kanye West‘s Donda for the award, Batiste acknowledged that he’s had “out of body experiences” with all of them.

“This is for real artists, real musicians. Let’s just keep going,” he added, before adding one more inspiring message to close things out. “Be you, that’s it.”

Before winning Album Of The Year, Batiste took home gramophones for Best Music Video (“Freedom”), Best American Roots Performance and Best American Roots Song (both for WE ARE track “Cry”), and Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media (Soul). He was the most-nominated artist of the night with 11.
