2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards to Honor Ice Spice, Victoria Monét, Tems & More.

Ice Spice, Kylie Minogue, Victoria Monét, Tems, NewJeans, Charli XCX, Luisa Sonza, Young Miko and Maren Morris will all receive awards at the Tracee Ellis Ross-hosted ceremony, set for March 6 and streaming March 7.

The honorees for the 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards demonstrate the degree to which music has become a global enterprise. There are honorees from Australia (Kylie Minogue), England (Charli XCX), South Korea (NewJeans), Nigeria (Tems), Brazil (Luisa Sonza), Puerto Rico (Young Miko) as well as the continental U.S. (Maren Morris, Ice Spice and Victoria Monét).

Tracee Ellis Ross will host the 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards, which will be held Wednesday, March 6, at YouTube Theater at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, Calif. – just outside of Los Angeles — and will stream on March 7. The annual event features musical performances and honors women powerhouses who are shaping the music landscape.

Presenters, performers and additional honorees, including the identity of the 2024 Billboard Woman of the Year, will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We could not be more excited to celebrate these inspiring and dynamic artists from around the world, as they move our culture forward and inspire women everywhere to push boundaries and pursue their own dreams,” Billboard’s editorial director, Hannah Karp, said in a statement. “With the talented Tracee Ellis Ross as our host, this year’s Billboard Women in Music Awards will be an unforgettable evening.”

Four of this year’s honorees – Monét, Ice Spice, Minogue and Tems – are also nominated for Grammy Awards on Feb. 4.

NewJeans landed their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 last year. Charli XCX and Ice Spice both had tracks on Barbie: The Album, which reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200 – in addition to soundtracking the Greta Gerwig film that became the biggest box-office hit of 2023.

Ice Spice: Hitmaker Award

“Four” is Ice Spice’s magic number at the moment. That’s the number of Grammy nominations she received this year, including best new artist. And it’s the number of top 10 hits on the Hot 100 she amassed last year – for collabs with Taylor Swift (“Karma”), PinkPantheress (“Boy’s a Liar, Pt. 2”) and a pair of collabs with Nicki Minaj (“Princess Diana” and “Barbie World,” which also featured Aqua).

The latter song is nominated for two Grammys – best rap song and best song written for visual media. “Karma” is nominated for best pop duo/group performance.

Victoria Monét: Rising Star Award

Monét was nominated for seven Grammys in 2024, for performance, songwriting and engineering. Her haul includes two of the Big Four awards – best new artist and record of the year for “On My Mama.” Monét’s album Jaguar II is nominated for two awards – best R&B album and best engineered album, non-classical.

Tems: Breakthrough Award

The Nigerian singer-songwriter and record producer is nominated for a Grammy as a co-writer of Rhianna’s smash “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The smash, which entered the Hot 100 at No. 2 in late 2022, is nominated for best song written for visual media. A year ago, it brought Tems and her co-writers an Oscar nod for best original song.

Tems won a Grammy last year – best melodic rap performance for Future’s “Wait for U,” on which she was featured (along with Drake). That song topped the Hot 100 in 2022. Tems landed her first top 10 hit, as a featured artist on Wizkid’s “Essence,” in 2021. Justin Bieber was also featured on that smash.

Young Miko: Impact Award

The Puerto Rican rapper and singer-songwriter cracked the Hot 100 last year with her reggaeton song, “Classy 101” (with Feid). She incorporates her identity and interests, including anime and urban music, into her music. Young Miko’s birth name is María Victoria Ramírez de Arellano.
