Chris Brown Turns Up The Music, Wins First Grammy Award

After eight nominations, Chris Brown finally received his first Grammy Award Sunday.

Following his much anticipated return to the Grammy stage, Brown accepted Best R&B Album, one of three nominations he held going into music’s coveted night.

“First and foremost I just gotta thank God for this opportunity. Thank you Grammys for letting me get on this stage and letting me do my thing,” said Brown. “I don’t know man I’m nervous. I don’t know what to say. Team Breezy this is all for you. All my fans. I love ya’ll. We got one !”

Late last week, Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich acknowledged Chris Brown’s return to the stage, claiming it was “time”.

“What he’s done and what he’s done to reclaim his career and seemingly the kind of person that he has become makes him – I don’t even want to use the word eligible – but you know, it’s time,” said Ehrlich.

In addition to accepting the award, Brown performed twice during Sunday’s celebration of music. During his own set, Chris Brown performed “Turn Up The Music” and “Beautiful People.” He later joined David Guetta for a special electronica tribute.

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards aired live Sunday, February 12 in Los Angeles.
