Post Malone to Receive Hal David Starlight Award

Post Malone is set to be bestowed with the Hal David Starlight Award.

The Songwriters Hall of Fame announced that the "Circles" hitmaker will be this year's recipient of the prestigious honor at the Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction and Awards at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on June 15. The award recognizes young songwriters whose work is impacting the music industry.

The 27-year-old megastar follows in the footsteps of the likes of Lil Nas X, Halsey,  Ed Sheeran, and Taylor Swift in receiving the prize.

The announcement comes after Snoop Dogg, Gloria Estefan, Electric Light Orchestra's Jeff Lynne and more were chosen for induction into the 2023 Songwriters Hall of Fame. Sade, Teddy Riley, Glen Ballard and Liz Rose are also being honored at the induction ceremony. Rap icon Snoop - who is known for hits including "Drop It Like It's Hot" and "Gin and Juice" - follows in the footsteps of previous hip-hop inductees Missy Elliott and Jay-Z in being recognised for their songwriting.

Estefan is known for the classics "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You" and "Let’s Get Loud", while ELO star Lynne penned timeless classics such as "Mr. Blue Sky" and "Evil Woman" and "Hold On Tight".

Post Malone has so far amassed 10 Grammy nominations. They include three consecutive nods for record of the year, for "Rockstar” (featuring 21 Savage)", "Sunflower" (a collab with Swae Lee) and "Circles." The latter song was also nominated for song of the year – Post Malone's only songwriting nod to date. Posty (real name: Austin Post) co-wrote the track with Louis Bell, Adam Feeney, Kaan Gunesberk and Billy Walsh. He has also nabbed two album of the year nods for beerbongs & bentleys and Hollywood’s Bleeding.
