Chance The Rapper and DJ Khaled continued their winning ways when they both took home trophies at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards this past Sunday (Aug. 13). One those awards they got themselves came courtesy “I’m the One,” DJ Khaled’s Chano, Justin Bieber, Quavo and Lil Wayne-assisted, platinum-selling single from his Grateful album.

“I’m the One” took home the trophy for Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song, beating out Macklemore’s “Glorious,” Khalid’s “Location,” Drake’s “Passionfruit,” Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” and Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like.” All the songs are dope, but only one could win, and Khaled, Chano and rest the “I’m the One” performers took home the big W.

Chano also took home the trophy for Choice Breakout Artist, besting the likes Dua Lipa, Halsey, James Arthur, Julia Michaels and Zara Larsson. In other words, Chano stays winning.

“Know No Better,” which is Major Lazer’s collaboration with Travis Scott, Quavo and Camila Cabello, took home the trophy for Choice Electronic/Dance Song. Other nominees included David Guetta’s Justin Bieber collab “2U,” Kygo and Selena Gomez’s “It Ain’t Me,” Steve Aoki and Louis Tomlinson’s “Just Hold On,” Clean Bandit’s Sean Paul and Anne-Marie-assisted “Rockabye” and The Chainsmokers and Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This.”
