“So first thing, I wanna say is this is unbelievable and second it’s not even an album, it’s an EP,” Wilson said after receiving her award.

“I’m speechless right now, I’m holding back tears,” she continued. “I really want to say thank you to God, first and foremost, and my parents, who are in the building right now, and my sister. Mom, dad, this is for all the sacrifices that you made for me and thank you for embracing my talents and who I am since I was a little girl.”

Wilson was nominated for five Grammys including Album of the Year, Best New Artist, and Best R&B Song.

In 2018, Wilson released her two EPs “I used to know her: The Prelude” and “I used to know her: Part 2.”

In January, Wilson revealed during her appearance in “The Late Late Show with James Corden” that she has Filipino blood.

The 21-year old artist said that her music interest was mainly because of her father being a musician and her mother being a Filipino.

“I’m half Filipino and Filipinos love karaoke,” she said. “I love to sing, I’ve always been around music my entire life and I just gravitated towards instruments.”

“They were at my house and my dad would rehearse with his band. So yeah, they were just available to me,” she added.
