To round off her recent record-breaking haul at the BRIT Awards, RAYE wins three awards including Best Pop and Best British Act at The Global Awards 2024, while her collaboration with Cassö and D-Block Europe on ‘PRADA’ wins Best Song.

After enjoying another stellar year in his career, Calvin Harris also walks away with three Global Awards, including Best Male, and Best Dance.

US and international superstar Taylor Swift is also celebrating, having scooped the award for Best Female, while Take That win Best Group and organist and conductor Anna Lapwood wins Best Classical.

Canadian singer-songwriter Tate McRae has been crowned Rising Star, acknowledging her breakthrough year in 2023, which saw her make waves with her album, ‘Think Later’.

Meanwhile, Central Cee scooped the award for Best Hip Hop & RnB for the second year in a row, and American rock band Foo Fighters were crowned Best Rock & Indie.

Having concluded his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ world tour – the last of his illustrious, 50-year career – in 2023, Elton John was named Global Legend at this year’s Global Awards.

‘My Therapist Ghosted Me’, which sees Vogue Williams and Joanne McNally give unsubstantiated but upfront and honest advice on a plethora of issues, was awarded Best Podcast.

Voted by listeners on Global Player, Jung Kook was crowned the winner of the Best Fans category.

“I just want to say thank you so much to Capital and The Global Awards for my beautiful awards. I’m very, very grateful! Thank you for supporting me from the beginning, and for playlisting my music… I owe you so much and I’m very grateful. So, lots of love, and thank you!” - RAYE ON TAKING HOME A TRIO OF GLOBAL AWARDS TROPHIES

“Thank you to Global for these three awards here. Unbelievable! Thank you to Capital, Capital Dance and Heart for playing the songs. You know, it’s still a buzz getting your tune played on the radio. So, these are going to stay in the studio, and hopefully inspire me to make some more decent tunes that will get played. And until then, thank you very much and all the best. Cheers!”
- CALVIN HARRIS, TRIPLE WINNER AT THE GLOBAL AWARDS 2024
