- Apple has announced the winners of their second annual Apple Music Awards, recognizing the best and boldest musicians of 2020 and their enormous impact on global culture.
The winners are chosen through a process that Apple says reflects both Apple Music’s editorial perspective and what customers around the world are loving most.
Apple Music’s global editorial team and ‘tastemakers’ choose the winners of the awards for Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Breakthrough Artist of the Year. The awards for Top Song of the Year and Top Album of the Year are based on streaming data that is reflective of what Apple Music subscribers have been listening to this year.
In typical Apple Fashion, Apple brags that the winners will be given awards that are made from ‘Apple’s custom silicon wafer suspended between a polished sheet of glass and a machined and anodized aluminum body.’
