Glasper, a 34-year-old jazz pianist, collaborated with a host of popular hip-hop and R&B artists on Black Radio. Erykah Badu, Lupe Fiasco, Ledisi, Yasiin Bey AKA Mos Def, among others, joined him on the project, which was met with nearly universal critical acclaim.
Black Radio beat out Back To Love (Anthony Hamilton); Write Me Back (R. Kelly); Beautiful Surprise (Tamia) and Open Invitation (Tyrese).
That's stiff competition, but we think the Grammys made the right choice.
