Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open” won in all four categories in which it was nominated – Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance.

Bruno Mars, one half of Silk Sonic, is only the second artist in Grammy history to win the year’s record three times. He previously won as a featured artist on Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk! and alone on 24K Magic. Paul Simon became the first artist to win Record of the Year three times – for “Mrs. Robinson” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, both with Simon & Garfunkel, and alone with “Graceland”.

D’Mile became the first songwriter in Grammy history to win Song of the Year two years in a row. He won last year for I Can’t Breathe, which he co-wrote with HER and Tiara Thomas. He won this year for Leave the Door Open, which he co-wrote with Mars, Anderson .Paak and Christopher Brody Brown. This is also the second win in this category for Mars and Brown, who co-wrote That’s What I Like, which won four years ago.

“Leave the Door Open” is only the third song in Grammy history to win both Song of the Year and Best R&B Song. The first two were Alicia Keys’ “Fallin'” and Mars’ “That’s What I Like.”

Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga love for sale was awarded Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. It is Bennett’s 14th win in this category. Nobody else has won more than four times here. (That’s not quite the record for most wins in a category. Jimmy Sturr won best polka album 18 times. Uncompetitiveness is one of the reasons the Academy dropped the category in 2009.)

Bennett, who is 95 years and eight months old, is the second-oldest winner in a category in Grammy history. The record is held by blues legend Pinetop Perkins, who was 97 years and 221 days old when he won the 2010 Best Traditional Blues Album award Connected at the hipa collaboration with Willie “Big Eyes” Smith.

Here are other artists who made Grammy history this year:

The late Chick Corea won two Grammys – Best Improvised Jazz Solo and Best Latin Jazz Album – bringing his total to 27. These wins place him among the top five Grammy winners of all time. The late classical conductor Georg Solti is the leader with 31 victories, followed by Beyoncé and Quincy Jones (28 each) and Alison Krauss (also 27).

Kanye West has the most Grammy wins by a rapper (24 each) with Jay-Z. West won melodic rap performance for “Hurricane” (featuring The Weeknd & Lil Baby) and best rap song for “Jail,” taking his total from 22 to 24. Jay-Z shared the latter award, which took his total from 23 to 24.

Foo Fighters won three Grammys – Best Rock Album for medicine at midnight and Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for “Waiting on a War”. The Foos are the first act to win Best Rock Album five times. No one else has won more than twice in the category. The awards were presented nine days after the death of the band’s drummer, Taylor Hawkins. Unfortunately, if the awards had been presented on January 31 as planned, he would have survived them.

St. Vincent became the first female solo artist to win Best Alternative Music Album twice. She won for Dad is at home seven years after the win for St. Vincent. This is the second year in a row that a solo artist has won this award. Fiona Apple won for last year Get the bolt cutters. This is the first time in Grammy history that female solo artists have back-to-back wins in this historically male-dominated category.

Chris Stapleton became the first solo artist to win Best Country Album three times. He won for Start again. The only other act to win more than twice is The Chics with four wins. Stapleton also became the first three-time winner for Best Country Solo Performance (for “You Should Maybe Leave”). He had been tied with two-time category champion Carrie Underwood.

Dhani Harrison, son of the late George Harrison, became the first Beatle child to win a Grammy. Harrison shared the award for Best Boxed or Limited Special Package for All Things Must Pass: 50th Anniversary Edition. His fellow winners were his mother, Olivia Harrison, and Darren Evans. Olivia Harrison is the third wife or widow of a Beatle to win a Grammy. Linda McCartney shared two awards with Paul McCartney for work attributed to Wings – “Band on the Run” (1974) and “Rockestra Theme” (1979). Yoko Ono shared the Album of the Year award with the late John Lennon for double fantasy (1981).

Olivia Rodrigo, who is 19 years and one month old, is the third youngest artist ever to win Best New Artist. She follows LeAnn Rimes, who was 14 years and six months when she won, and Eilish, who was 18 years and one month. (Christina Aguilera was 19 years and two months old when she won.)

Baby Keem’s “Family Ties” featuring his cousin Kendrick Lamar won Best Rap Performance. It’s Lamar’s record-breaking fifth win in this category.

summer of the soul won Best Musical Film a week after winning an Oscar for Documentary (Feature Film). It is only the second film to win both awards 20 feet from glory. Questlove directed summer of the soul. It was co-produced by David Dinerstein, Robert Fyvolent and Joseph Patel.

Joni Mitchell, this year’s MusiCares Person of the Year, won for Best Historical Album Joni Mitchell Archives, Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963-1967). Mitchell is credited (along with Patrick Milligan) as producing the compilation. The last person to win Person of the Year and a Grammy in the same year was Paul McCartney 10 years ago. He won in the same category as a deluxe edition producer band on the run.

Jack Antonoff became the first past winner of Best New Artist, which later went on to win Producer of the Year (non-classical). Antonoff won Best New Artist nine years ago as a member of the pop trio fun.
