Apple's First-Ever Music Awards Honors Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X

The winners take titles across five categories.

Apple has introduced its first-ever Apple Music Awards, a celebration of 2019’s boldest musicians. The tech giant will formally introduce the winners of five categories — Global Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year — at a globally streamed ceremony at Apple Park in Cupertino, California.

Apple Music editors hand-selected Billie Eilish as Global Artist of the Year and Lizzo Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Eilish and her brother, FINNEAS, will be dually awarded Songwriter of the Year. Based on Apple Music streaming data, Eilish’s album WHEN WE ALL FALL ALSEEP, WHERE DO WE GO takes Album of The Year, while “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X wins Song of the Year. In a press release, Apple Music Vice President Oliver Schusser lauded this year’s honorees for having “sparked deep social conversation, influenced culture and inspired our customers around the world.”

The inaugural Apple Music Awards will take place at Apple Park’s Steve Jobs Theater on December 4 at 6:30 p.m. PST. Catch the live stream for a special performance by Billie Eilish.
