Taylor Swift Wins Top Apple Music Awards Accolade
Taylor Swift has been crowned Songwriter of the Year by the 2020 Apple Music Awards.
The global superstar has been announced as the winner of the top accolade at the upcoming second annual music awards.
The win comes off the back of Swift's record-breaking album, folklore, which zoomed to the top of the Apple Music albums chart and set the record for the most streamed pop album on the day of its release.
In response to the honor, Swift said: “Winning Songwriter of the Year in any capacity in any year would be so exciting, but I think it’s really special this particular year because songwriting was the one thing that kept me connected to my fans.
“It means a lot to me because the way that fans respond to the songs I write, and the emotional exchange, is what has really kept me going this year. So I really want to say thank you to the fans for that, and to everyone at Apple Music, thank you for everything that you do.”
Rapper Roddy Ricch is the biggest winner overall, scooping both Top Song of the Year for 'The Box' and Top Album of the Year for Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, while Megan Thee Stallion was named Breakthrough Artist of the Year following her rise to fame in 2020. Lil Baby was also honored with the Artist of the Year prize.
