The BMI Pop Awards have unveiled their coveted list of winners and, per usual, some of the biggest singer-songwriters in music nabbed trophies.
Due to the global health crisis, event organizers opted to forego a traditional ceremony. Instead, they collected recorded acceptance speeches from the night’s top winners which included Khalid and Post Malone (who tied for Songwriter of the Year), Halsey (who won Song of the Year for her Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit ‘Without Me’), and more.
Look inside for the full list:
BMI also celebrated the songwriters and publishers of the 50 most-performed Pop songs of the previous year. This year’s group of honorees includes 47 first-time BMI Pop award recipients, who have amassed over 25 million song performances collectively.
