Billboard's Editorial Director Hannah Karp said in a statement, "We’re thrilled to recognize these groundbreaking artists across genres and generations who are defining today’s sound – and paving the way for tomorrow’s women in music."
Women in Music will be a big night for all of the honorees, who are all making history in their own ways! TWICE, for instance, will be the first Korean pop female group to win an award for Billboard Women in Music, and will be only the second girl group to be honored following Fifth Harmony in 2015.
Billboard's Women in Music event will be held on March 1st at the Youtube Theater, and will be hosted by Quinta Brunson!

The event is open to the public, and pre-sale tickets are already available! General sale will begin on Friday, February 3rd.
