The first of this year’s “Big Four” Grammy Awards has been distributed.

Childish Gambino’s chart-topping hit “This Is America” was named the winner for Song Of The Year. The award goes to songwriters Donald “Childish Gambino” Glover and Ludwig G√∂ransson.

The “This Is America” win constitutes a mild upset. Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” was a slight favorite in the category.

Along with “This Is America” and “Shallow,” the category included “All The Stars,” “In My Blood,” “Boo’d Up,” “God’s Plan,” “The Joke,” and “The Middle.”
