The 14th annual Billboard Women in Music event will be returning to Los Angeles and will honor Alicia Keys, Megan Thee Stallion and Rosalia for their work in female empowerment.

According to Billboard, the American Express Impact Award will be awarded to Keys for her work with She is the Music, an initiative formed with Jody Gerson, Sam Kirby Yoh, and Ann Mincieli. She is the Music has teamed with the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, Universal and Billboard along with launching a Latin committee, hosted writing camps for females and more.

“Women in Music is a celebration of artists and executives who are changing the world through their work. We are excited to honor Alicia Keys, Rosalía and Megan thee Stallion, whose singular visions and voices are shifting our culture while inspiring fans to stay true to themselves,” said Hannah Karp, Billboard’s editorial director.
