At this year’s Grammy Awards, Glasper is up for two trophies, including Best Traditional R&B Performance (“Born Again” with Leon Bridges) and Best Progressive R&B Album for Dinner Party: Dessert, a project released under the supergroup Dinner Party. 

More recently, Glasper joined Alex Isley and Jack Dine for the song “Still Wonder.”
