Billboard has recently announced that Karol G, the 32-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter, has been selected as the 2024 Woman of the Year.
She will be presented with this prestigious award at the upcoming Billboard Women in Music Awards on 6 March.
This recognition comes shortly after Karol G won her first Grammy.
“With her immense talent, Karol G has created a movement for women across the globe due to her empowering lyrics and shameless confidence,” said Hannah Karp, Billboard’s editorial director, in a new press release.
“The release of her groundbreaking album Mañana Será Bonito has proven her a force to be reckoned with in both the English and Spanish charts,” she continued. “We are so excited to honor her as Woman of the Year.”
Her debut album, “Unstoppable,” was released the same year and reached number two on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart.
In February 2023, her fourth album, “Mañana Será Bonito,” also achieved great success by debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.
The 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards will be hosted by actress Tracee Ellis Ross and will also honor other influential women in the music industry like Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, and Ice Spice.
The annual music event will be held at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles.
