Bruno Mars' winning streak continues! 

At tonight's 2018 Grammy Awards, the songwriters behind smash hit "That's What I Like" were honored with one of the four major accolades up for grabs during the annual ceremony. 

Fellow nominees included Jay-Z for "4:44," Logic for "1-800-273-8255" feat. Alessia Cara and KhalidLuis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee for "Despacito" feat. Justin Bieber and Julia Michaels for "Issues.

Differing from Record of the Year (which recognizes the song's artist and production team), Song of the Year goes only to the track's composers. In this year's case, all of the songs nominated were performed by artists who also earned songwriting credits.

In Bruno's acceptance speech, the hip-hop star gave thanks to The Recording Academy and the inner circle that helped him get to where he is today, including co-writers Christopher Brody Brown, James Fauntleroy, Philip Lawrence, Ray Charles McCullough II, Jeremy Reeves, Ray Romulus and Jonathan Yip

"I've known these guys for over a decade," he shared onstage. "All the music, the music business horror stories you see in the movies, we've been through all of it. And this is the first time on this album that we all came collectively as a group and put this song together and put the album together. So fellas, it is an honor to share this with you tonight. These are my brothers."
