Filipina-American singers Olivia Rodrigo and H.E.R. have bagged top honors in the third annual Apple Music Awards.

Teenage pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo took home her first three Apple Music Awards including Breakthrough Artist, Album of the Year for her debut album “SOUR”, and Song of the Year for her chart-topping hit, “drivers license”.

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter H.E.R. was named Songwriter of the Year.

The two artists were announced among the big winners of the music streaming service’s Apple Music Awards celebration which kicks off on December 7, 2021.

“I am very honored and blessed to receive this recognition,” H.E.R., whose real name is Gabriella “Gabi” Wilson, said.

“As a young Black and Filipino artist, and a woman who is on the stage giving my all, there’s no doubt that representation is important. Thank you so much, Apple Music,” H.E.R. added.

The Apple Music Awards honor achievements in music across five distinct categories: Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Top Song of the Year, and Top Album of the Year.

Winners were chosen through a process that reflects both Apple Music’s editorial perspective and what customers around the world are listening to the most.

Fil-Ams Rodrigo and H.E.R. are both vying for top awards in the 64th Grammy Awards set to take place in January 2022.

Rodrigo recently bagged her first-ever award in this year’s American Music Awards (AMAs) with fellow Fil-Am Bruno Mars.
