Coloring Book by Chance The Rapper
On Dec. 6, 2016, The Recording Academy announced the 59th annual Grammy Award nominations. Nominees included Drake, Adele and Beyonce, but none of them were given nods for albums with forward-thinking release strategies. Chance The Rapper, however, made history with his acclaimed “Coloring Book,” which became the first record solely available through streaming services to be nominated for a Grammy. The album is also the first of its kind to reach No. 8 on the Billboard album charts. Source: Forbes.
