Alicia Keys, Megan Thee Stallion Among Billboard’s 2019 Women in Music Honorees

Published: Wednesday 4th Dec 2019 by Rashad

With Billboard’s highly anticipated 14th annual Women in Music event just weeks away, the Music Bible has finally lifted the lid on its roster of 2019 honorees.

Details inside:

Alicia Keys, Megan the Stallion, and Spanish singer-songwriter Rosalía complete the list of the event’s celebrated acts.

Billboard reports:

Keys will be honored with the American Express Impact Award for her work with She is the Music, which she formed with Jody Gerson, Sam Kirby Yoh and Ann Mincieli. 

Megan Thee Stallion, quickly establishing herself as a cultural icon by spearheading the “hot girl summer” trend, will receive this year’s Powerhouse Award for rolling out endless hits. Spanish singer-songwriter Rosalía will receive the Rising Star Award after changing the sound of today’s mainstream music with her fresh flamenco-influenced pop.

*****

Joining the list of previously announced honorees Taylor Swift (Woman of the Decade Award), Billie Eilish (Woman of the Year Award), Nicki Minaj (Game Changer Award), and more at the 2019 Women in Music ceremony, the trio of acts will be presented their awards at the Hollywood Palladium on December 12.

This year’s event – sponsored by YouTube Music, American Express, and more – will be hosted by last year’s Rising Star honoree Hayley Kiyoko.

    Megan doesnt even have a top 10 hit to her name and u guys are already giving her awards.

    Atleast she made a bigger impact than normani who they shoved down our throats but she still flopped.
    Not one single achievement normani has to her name in 2019. Sad

    Haters in 3.2. 1
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      – Real Friends (she even did a REMIX with Swae Lee) – didn’t chart
      – Mi Persona Favorita – didn’t chart
      – Love Incredible with Cashmere Cat – didn’t chart
      – Hey Ma with Pitbull – didn’t chart
      – Know No Better – peaked at 87
      – Find U Again with Mark Ronson – didn’t chart even after promo and big budget video
      – Cry For Me – didn’t chart even after SNL performance
      – Easy – didn’t chart even after SNL performance

        Yes they are all flops I admit,
        But Camila is still the 4th most streamed female artist on spotify in 2019.
        Seniorita is the most streamed song of 2019.

        What are normani achievements in 2019.
        Pls list them we are waiting…..

        🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭😭😭😭

      • You Tried December 4, 2019

      So is normani more successful than Camila in 2019?

      🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Just honoring anybody at this point. The award is not even valuable anymore.

  4. Swirly December 4, 2019

    Megan is no one’s “cultural icon” .

    • Fancy BISH December 4, 2019

      Maybe at Tootsie’s Cabaret 😂

  5. Jasmine December 4, 2019

    Congrats to The 2 Female Rappers getting awards Nicki Minaj & Meg Thee Stallion. Billboard Chart finally got it right now that CardiB is under Payola Investigation she’s no where to be found on Billboard. Goodbye 👋🏾 Fraudie B, let real rappers rap Again

  6. Barb-wire/ thee Stallion Hottie December 4, 2019

    Yasss the Queen and the Princess of Rap!!! To think all this s*** is happening without a debut album for Meg, I couldn’t be more proud!!!

    I can’t wait for her debut record, sis is about to cut up. 🔥🔥🔥

    The Queen is getting accolades in her retirement, enjoying her husband and sipping margaritas. They hate to see it!

    • Dc December 5, 2019

      She sure ain’t gonna cut up selling 3 million like cardi did that’s for sure that small lil label she signed to nobody even ever head of 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  7. Barb-wire/ Stallion Hottie December 4, 2019

    Crusty B is being embarrassed on IG and Twitter by Offcheat while real rappers are being honored, such a clueless dumb h**.

    • Dc December 5, 2019

    • Dc December 5, 2019

      Cardi is on hiatus and still beat drake and post Malone just last month winning am AMA meg the flop wasn’t even considered for a nomination and got no Grammy nominations so cardi very good

  8. Xtina4life December 4, 2019

    Lmfao endless hit? 😂😂😂

    • Dc December 5, 2019

      Exactly but hasn’t even had a top 10 hot 100 payola by Minaj it’s clear meg is using payola

  9. TiWayne December 4, 2019

    Why they honor Rosalia or Megan Thee Stallion? They are new Artist. I miss those days where Artists worked they butts off to get a Seat at the table!!
    Those Destinys Child Girls worked so hard to be recognized everywhere! TLC,En Vouge, Aaliyah,The Clark Sisters, Jackson 5, Janet Jackson, Mary Mary all this people put so much work into they carrer. I dont understand this industry anymore. Now days everybody is a Icon so funny!!!!

  10. Jj December 4, 2019

    Ciara deserves Meghan’s award. Ciara actually impacted culture. Everyone and their Mama (including corporations) are using Level Up. When will she get her props? Sis has to host just to get on the mainstage. These others get to flop, bounce, and go viral one time and boom major awards. Make it make sense

  11. Dc December 5, 2019

    Endless hits but meg doesn’t even have a top 10 this is payola she’s very overrated
