The Billboard Women in Music Awards, an annual celebration of rising and A-list female powerhouses in the entertainment industry, will go down March 1, with Quinta Brunson handling the hosting duties.
This year’s event, slated to take place at LA’s YouTube Theater, will honor Doechii with the Rising Star Award presented by Honda and Latto with the Powerhouse Award.
The two stars are among a list of honorees who’ll get the spotlight for their contributions to the industry and community. Also being celebrated are future Impact Award recipient Becky G; Ivy Queen, who’ll be honored with the Icon Award; and Kim Petras, Lainey Wilson, Lana Del Ray and TWICE, set to receive the Chartbreaker, Rulebreaker, Visionary and Breakthrough awards, respectively.
“We’re thrilled to recognize these groundbreaking artists across genres and generations who are defining today’s sound – and paving the way for tomorrow’s women in music,” said Billboard editorial director Hannah Karp. “With the inspiring Quinta Brunson as our host, this year’s Billboard Women in Music Awards is going to be an incredible night.”
