In two days, Aiko will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of her first mixtape, Sailing Soul(s), and on Sunday she was nominated in three categories including Best R&B Performance as well as Best Progressive R&B Album and Album of the Year for Chilombo.
"It means a lot, you know. I think we all put a lot into our music and it always feels good to be recognized in any capacity," she told ET's Kevin Frazier. "And that's what it's all about for me."
"Obviously this is a big night for music, and every musician would be lying if they said they didn't dream of being nominated for a GRAMMY, you know?" she added. "So, yeah, I'm just thankful to be here."
"It's a blessing to be here," Sean added. "We lost a lot of people, we continue to lose a lot of people, a lot of heroes, a lot of people that are so talented. But we wake up and get to be here, so it's an honor."
