Soja's Won 2022 Grammy for Best Reggae Album
American reggae band SOJA took home the Grammy for best reggae album at the 64th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, and the internet is not happy about it.
The Virginia-based band won the award for their album "Beauty In The Silence," which was released in July 2021 and peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's reggae albums chart. The group beat out contemporaries Sean Paul, Spice, Jesse Royal, Etana and Gramps Morgan.
"Starting a reggae band was kind of our dream and the only thing we wanted to do, and then one day people started coming to the shows and we're not really sure what happened," lead singer Jacob Hemphill said in the band's acceptance speech, after thanking their early musical influences.
"To the founding fathers of reggae music and to the island of Jamaica, you inspired us all," another member of the band said onstage. "Give thanks, one love."
