SZA’s list of achievements just keeps growing. Her sophomore album, SOS, has repeatedly broken Billboard records. As a result, the publication said on Friday, February 10, that a ceremony will be held next month to honor the 33-year-old. The R&B singer will then leave with a trophy designating her Woman of the Year.
Hannah Karp, the editorial director of Billboard, explains why it was a no-brainer for the Women in Music Awards to honor SZA in a statement. “SZA has defied genres and consistently released raw, powerful songs that have landed her music on the Billboard charts since she burst onto the scene in 2017,” she said. She has become a household name as a result of the publication of her most recent album, SOS, which has established her as a distinctive force in modern R&B.
Quinta Brunson, who created the television series Abbott Elementary, will serve as the event’s host on March 1. The YouTube Theatre in Inglewood will host it. Similar honors will be given to a number of other prominent women in the sector. Rappers Doechii and Latto will each get the Honda Rising Star Award and the Powerhouse Award, while Lana Del Rey will receive the Visionary Award.
