According to a press release via Billboard, the accolade recognizes “a female artist who has pushed boundaries with her music and message while inspiring her fans around the globe.”
What boundaries has she pushed with her music? Because she rejected bangers from Sia, Ryan Tedder, Ed Sheeran and Diplo? “Havana” is a global hit and pays homage to her ancestry so perhaps that? Simultaneous No. 1s on the Hot 100 and the Billboard 200? Asking for a friend.
It’s also worth mentioning Bon Jovi will receive the iHeartRadio Icon Award and Chance The Rapper will get the Innovator Award.
