Billboard Women in Music Awards

I’m not one for award shows, but I do enjoy the Billboard Women in Music Awards. There is something different about it. Maybe it’s because the winners actually make sense, because unlike the Grammy’s, Billboard picks winners based on fan interactions. Whether it’s music charts or attentive fan love, the women who won this year truly deserved it.

WOMEN OF THE YEAR went to SZA, which makes sense. SZA’s new album SOS has stayed at number one on Billboards top 200s for 10 weeks. SZA is a strong women with strong music that people love. This award was meant for her this year.

Lana Del Rey won the VISIONARY award. This award I appreciate because I feel when it comes to awards, Lana is forgotten. The artist has more than 40 million Spotify listeners, has headlined at the Hollywood Bowl and has hit the charts over and over again in the span of 14 years, yet hasn’t won a Grammy. Lana rightfully so deserves this award for her incredible art and musical visions.

POWERHOUSE went to Latto. This award made me happy because Latto has been recently popping off and growing her audience. She embodies power, and her hit song “Big Energy” played a major role in her achievement of this award.

Here are the rest of the winners: Becky G~IMPACT, Doechii~RISING STAR, Ivy Queen~ICON, Kim Petras~CHARTBREAKER, Lainey Wilson~RULEBREAKER, Rosalia~PRODUCER OF THE YEAR, Twice~BREAKTHROUGH and Sylvie Rhone~EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR.

The Billboard Women in Music Awards are unlike any other because women of all age ranges and genres are awarded. The awards are based solely on the talent and the music these women have made. I enjoy the charismatic titles of the awards — they aren’t basic.
