Elliott’s efforts as a producer and artist will earn her the Diamond Impact Award of the evening. Along with longtime partner Timbaland, the rap icon created a number of her own singles, including the 2002 Billboard Hot 100 No. 2 smash “Work It.” The Powerhouse Producer Award will go to Chlöe, who gained popularity as part of the combo Chloe x Halle with her sister Halle Bailey and is currently recording as a solo artist. Ten of the fourteen tracks on her debut solo album, In Pieces, which was released in March, were produced by her.
Billboard is among the media partners at the Nov. 4 event, alongside iHeartMedia. “Billboard is thrilled to support Girls Make Beats and the incredible young women honing their skills as producers,” Dana Droppo, Billboard‘s chief brand officer, said in a statement. “We need more of them and are committed to continuing to platform women and girls in music for years to come.”
