Billboard Celebrates Women in Music

Hosted by Teyana Taylor, the 15th annual Billboard’s 2020 Women in Music Event will honor female artists and industry professionals from Dolly Parton and Cardi B to Jennifer Lopez and Dua Lipa. Industry newcomers will also be named, including Chloe x Halle and Jesse Reyes.

Chloe x Halle will receive the Rising Star Award Presented by Honda, and Jessie Reyez will be honored with the American Express Impact Award.

Cardi B is set to receive Woman of the Year, following her success of yet another hit, “WAP”, along with the triumphant release of her sold-out Reebok collaboration. The ‘Hitmaker Award’ will go to Dolly Parton, who is being recognized for her significant impact on culture as a whole, and Jennifer Lopez will join a list of legends like Cyndi Lauper, Mary J. Blige, and Aretha Franklin in receiving the prestigious ‘Icon Award.’

The 2020 Executive of the Year Award will go to Brianna Agyemang and Jamila Thomas, the masterminds behind #TheShowMustBePaused intended on shining the light on police brutality and racial equality following the murder of George Floyd.
