See the Post-Grammys Text Chance the Rapper Received From Kendrick Lamar

The rapper won for his album "Coloring Book", beating out several established performers including Drake and Kanye West.

Chance the Rapper was blessed with his first three Grammys on Sunday (Feb. 12), but he wasn't the only one excited about the wins.

Chance The Rapper celebrated his historic win at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards with a new song.

Watch footage of Chance The Rapper performing at last night's Grammys below.

The rapper, who has been open about his Christianity, told the televised gala: "I claim the victory in the name of the Lord". Five of the 14 tracks of The Coloring Book have deeply religious themes and sample Christian contemporary artists like Chris Tomlin, Fred Hammond, Kirk Franklin and Byron Cage.

"I didn't think that we were going to get this one", he admits. This alone was a battle Chance has been fighting since the release of his breakout project, Acid Rap.

The Chicago-born rapper has never sold a single album, opting instead to make money through touring, carefully selected advert appearances and merchandise. The song, which also features 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne, was nominated twice over.

His mixtape releases, including last year's exemplary "Coloring Book", were available only as streams and free downloads, and he is still without a formal record label.

He took up the anti-violence cause in collaboration with his father Ken Williams-Bennett, who has served as an aide to former president Barack Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Part of the caption for the photograph read: "thank YOU GUYS for everything".

Pop music fans in Singapore will cheer Adele's big haul at the Grammys this year, but when it comes to the other big victor, they might find themselves going, "Chance The Rapper, who?"

Later in the night, Chance thanked God again when he accepted another award for Best Rap Performance.
