One of the most deserving men in music, Dernst “D’Mile” Emile, II celebrated huge wins Sunday night after he walked away with several GRAMMYS.

D’Mile won in major categories for his production and songwriting on Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open.”

The timeless classic won Record of the Year, Best R&B Song and Song of the Year making it D’Mile’s historic second Song of the Year win after winning last year alongside H.E.R for “I Can’t Breathe.”

He dedicated his Song of the Year Grammy win to his mother, Yanick Étienne – a musical legend in her own right, who passed on Wednesday following her battle with cancer.

The classically trained musician/producer/singer/songwriter also took home GRAMMYS for his contributions on Lucky Daye’s, “A Seat at the Table”, which won Progressive R&B Album, and for his work on H.E.R’s “Fight For You” from Judas and the Black Messiah, which also earned him an Oscar in 2021.
