Congratulations, 2012 Grammy Award Winners!

 

Sending lots of good vibes and congratulations to all the Grammy nominees and winners this year! We are happy to have had several artists we worked with in 2011 nominated and even a couple winners!

Big congrats to Corrine Bailey Rae, who won Best R&B Performance for “Is This Love” from The Love EP. Such a beautiful tune by an equally stunning lady.

Also very nice to see that the late Amy Winehouse won Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her “Body And Soul” duet with Tony Bennett.

The star of the night, without much surprise, was the enormously talented miss Adele. She managed to snag a win for every category for which she was nominated! Oh, and did we mention she is also the cover girl for the March issue of Vogue? Get em, girl.

Just for emphasis, these are all the different ways in which Adele owned:

Plug Research is taking over now; they’re too good. Today they gave us a video of Bilal (who’s new album Airtight’s Revenge came out this week) working with Miguel Atwood-Ferguson‘s orchestra to play a Bilal-style ”cover” of a classic Bob Marley song, “Is This Love.” Bilal puts a beautiful new twist on the song making it almost unrecognizable, with the help of the orchestra he leads along the way. Another “cover” was recorded during the same session which we’ll get soon, and that’s gonna be none other than Soft Cells “Tainted Love.”
