No hard feelings here.
After years of not being able to qualify, Chance The Rapper was finally recognised by the Grammy Awards last night as he picked up not one, not two, but three awards for his album 'Coloring Book, including 'Best New Artist,' 'Best Rap Performance' and 'Best Rap Album.'
Fans at home weren't the only ones happy for the Chicago rapper as Drake, who is currently touring the UK, took time to send Chance love via a text message from Manchester.
Twitter exploded as they realised that Chance, who gives all his music away for free, beat both Kanye and Drake to take home the award. What a moment.
