Few can boast as a colossal a year as Cardi B.

Citing the star’s chart-topping success with ‘WAP,’ political activism, and savvy endorsement deals, the media giant will present the femcee with the salute during the virtual event on December 10. 

She isn’t the only major name who’ll be honored at the Teyana Taylor hosted extravaganza.

Jennifer Lopez will receive the coveted Icon Award for her impact on the music industry and the greater artistic community. She joins previous recipients Aretha Franklin, Mary J. Blige, and Shania Twain.

The 2020 Executive of the Year Award will be jointly presented toBrianna Agyemang and Jamila Thomas, the forces behind #TheShowMustBePaused movement (in the wake of George Floyd’s death).

  2. King+of+Kingz November 18, 2020

    Clown s***, bought & paid for. Taylor, Ariana, Megan & even Nicki had bigger years. JLo getting an icon award for impact on music is clear this s*** is a joke

    • Klutch November 18, 2020

    • D0p3B0ii November 19, 2020

      Haha stay presssss because your fav never could lol JLO stay winning.

  3. Detruth November 18, 2020

    I’m not hating i like Cardi but she only had 1 big song this year. It’s alot of other women that deserved that award that made an impact more than once this year.

    • Soooo what? November 18, 2020

      I agree and I love Cardi B! Meg could have gotten it!

      • DC November 18, 2020

        Meg can’t even get a hit on her own cardi gave meg her biggest song ever so

  4. Urg November 18, 2020

    Lol Jennifer Lopez getting an icon award for impact in the music industry😂. My how Billboard have sunk.

    • Clarks0o0ñ November 18, 2020

      Whether u like jlo or not, she has impacted the entertainment industry in a huge manner

      Her green Versace grammy gown alone was a huge pop culture phenomenon. She literally invented google images because of this dress.

      • King+of+Kingz November 18, 2020

        🧐What does that damn dress that Diddy picked out for her have to do with some damn music or billboard tho 🥴

    • Urg November 18, 2020

      Only thing iconic thing Jlo did in the music industy is getting away with vocal theft. Had it not been for Ashanti, Christian Milan and the other girls vocals she ripped off she would have just been another pretty Latina girl on Diddy’s arm.

      • Dop3B0ii November 19, 2020

        That’s funny last time I checked she’s a multi millionaire cashing them checks for over 30 years now in the game. Mad cuz the JLO reign never ends. Stay mad more JLO winning coming soon. Btw Ashanti got paid for her contributions so idk how’s that’s theft so did Christina who milian and we’re is there careers now?? Lol non existent , and if we want to talk theft Beyoncé stole if I were a boy among other songs. Do your research.

  5. Gee November 18, 2020

    These industry awards are becoming more and more less in value. Because they are being given to people based off of how popular they are, and not necessarily their impact on the music industry, and culture.

  6. Ratedxxx November 18, 2020

    So we’re just bying awards now?

    Cardi getting all these awards, when the bish can’t barely rap..

      • The Craze November 22, 2020

        You do know 8 million copies sold worldwide isn’t a lot, and WAP suppose to be a “mega hit” 🤣

  7. Bardii November 18, 2020

    Y’all hating b****** acting like WAP wasn’t huge and breaking records all over. It’s impact on culture was huge too. What song was bigger than WAP this year???

  8. QUEENDOM November 18, 2020

    So one song that was hot for a few months and she’s woman of the year. If anything it should be meg she owned the charts this year. But I guess when you can pay for the award why not

    • DC November 18, 2020

    • Swifter2020 November 18, 2020

      I couldn’t agree more!!

    • DC November 18, 2020

      Meg biggest steaming song was only 244 mil
      For savage wap at 500 mil streams in 3 months so tell me again how meg deserve it cardi gave meg her biggest hit ever meg overrated ass can’t even get a solo hit so why does she deserve it her sales don’t add up to her hype

  15. jungkook November 18, 2020

    JLo was the first female to win Billboard Icon Award on Billboard Awards 2014
    Her last award was the Icon Award on People Choice Awards 2020 this week
    QUEEN

  16. Swifter2020 November 18, 2020

    Ariana, Taylor and Megan had a better year over this fraudi B. Check the facts and statistics, just like JLo..pretty and no God given talent. Both are industry plants trying to get rid of the greats.

    • DC November 18, 2020

      How’s don’t stop performing on charts or boys in the hood 2 flops meg can’t hit without a big feature cardi dusted her ass with 1 song she let her be on giving meg her biggest hit yet so stfu

    • Dop3B0ii November 19, 2020

      JLO no talent? Lmao she’s a dancer actress singer business mogul doing it for over 30 years but has no talent? Clearly she’s king something right lmao.
