Janelle Monáe will be honored at Billboard’s 13th Annual Women in Music event, December 6th in New York City, receiving the Trailblazer award.

The Trailblazer award is given to a female artist who uses her platform to spotlight untapped voices and break ground for future generations of performers. Janelle Monáe has redefined how a black woman can be represented in pop culture.

Billboard’s editorial director Jason Lipshutz says, “Janelle Monáe’s insatiable drive to incorporate new, untold stories into her artistic projects — while synthesizing classic funk, soul, R&B, jazz, hip-hop, and rock — makes her a truly unique voice. Popular music is more interesting today because Janelle Monáe is part of it.”

Congratulations Janelle and thank you for all of the #BlackGirlMagic throughout the years!
