“Kiss Me More” is now a Grammy-winning song.
Doja Cat and SZA are now Grammy winners.
At the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, the duo accepted the golden gramophone for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Kiss Me More,” marking both their first Grammy wins. The two beat out fellow nominees BTS, Coldplay, Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco, and Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.
After being named the winners, SZA walked up to the stage by herself on crutches (with a lending hand from Lady Gaga, who made sure to straighten out her vintage Jean Paul Gaultier train). Meanwhile, Doja arrived hastily from the other side of the stage, prompting SZA to say, “Bro, you went to the bathroom for five minutes. Are you serious?”
“I have never taken such a fast piss in my whole life,” joked Doja, who wore a sparkling blush pink gown with a thigh-high leg slit.
She eventually pivoted the speech to express her gratitude to her counterpart. “SZA, you are everything to me. … You are the epitome of talent. You’re a lyricist. You’re everything.” She then gestured for SZA to speak into the mic, adding, “I need you to say something. Please give them something.”
The Ctrl singer obliged. “Thank you, Doja. Thank you to my mama, thank you to God, and just thank all of y’all,” she said, then turning to Doja, “I’m glad you made it back in time.”
Then, Doja began to cry. Speaking back into the mic, she added, “I like to downplay shit, but this? It’s a big deal. Thank you, everybody.”
