If you watched the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards this weekend – or if you’ve been on the Internet at all since they’ve aired – you’ve probably gotten wind of the many surprises that characterized the show, from Best New Artist (Esperanza Spalding) to Album of the Year (indie band Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs). You may have seen a performance, watched a video, or listened to a song clip from a band or artist who you became interested in as a result of the Grammys, or even downloaded a new album onto your promotional MP3 player.
There’s a list of Grammy winners here so you know what music to fill your promotional MP3 player with. I recommend Esperanza Spalding, who swept the award for Best New Artist out from under fan favorites Justin Bieber and Drake, as well as every track on Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs and Lady Gaga’s The Fame Monster, which received the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album.
