Billboard shared the lineup of artists, who hail across a wide-range of musical genres, to be honored at the 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards.  Hosted by actress Tracee Ellis Ross, the 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards ‘celebrates female talent shaping the music landscape.’  This year’s event will recognize Kylie Minogue, Maren Morris, Ice Spice, Charli XCX, Young Miko, Victoria Monét, NewJeans, TEMS and Luísa Sonza. The nine artists will be honored at a ceremony held at Los Angeles’ YouTube Theater on March 6.

Minogue, 55, will receive the coveted icon award; the Australian superstar released her 16th studio album Tension last year, featuring the global hit “Padam Padam.”  Morris, 33, will be celebrated with the visionary award; the artist is committed to speaking out against injustices throughout her career, and released her EP The Bridge last year.

Ice Spice, 24, is being honored with the hitmaker award; the rapper had five songs throughout 2023 within the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100, including her collaboration with Taylor Swift (on her “Karma” remix) and her collabs with Nicki Minaj on “Barbie World” and “Princess Diana.” Charli XCX, 31, will receive the powerhouse award, in honor of the innovations she’s made to the pop genre.
