The time has officially come to dethrone “That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars.

The 61st annual Grammy Awards took place tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and “Boo’d Up” by Ella Mai won the award for Best R&B Song.

The song beat out “Come Through and Chill” by Miguel (Jermaine Cole, Miguel Pimentel and Salaam Remi), “Feels Like Summer” by Childish Gambino (Donald Glover and Ludwig Göransson), “Focus” by H.E.R.
