The 55th Annual Grammy Awards took place on Sunday and the Robert Glasper Experiment nabbed the award for Best R&B Album. The albums up for the award were Robert Glasper Experiment's "Black Radio," Anthony Hamilton's "Back to Love," R. Kelly's "Write Me Back," Tamia's "Beautiful Surprise," and Tyrese's "Open Invitation."

The Robert Glasper Experiment was also up for Best R&B Performance for "Gonna Be Alright (F.T.B.)," while Anthony Hamilton was up for Best R&B Song for "Pray for Me," and Tamia was up for Best R&B Song for "Beautiful Surprise."

The Grammys have introduced a new category this year, Best Urban Contemporary Album. The inaugural nominees were Chris Brown's "Fortune," Miguel's "Kaleidoscope Dream," and Frank Ocean's "Channel Orange." Ocean took home the award.

At last year's 54th Annual Grammy Awards, Chris Brown's "F.A.M.E." beat out El DeBarge's "Second Change," R. Kelly's "Love Letter," Ledisi's "Pieces of Me," and Kelly Price's "Kelly" to win Best R&B Album. The category was introduced at the 1995 Grammy Awards and was first awarded to Boyz II Men for the album "II."
