Olivia Rodrigo is being named Billboard’s 2022 “Woman of the Year.” The honor will take place live at the Billboard Women in Music Awards on March 2 at the YouTube Theater at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California.

Her talents as a storyteller and songwriter have made Olivia one of the most authentic and exciting new artists to explode onto the scene in years. Connecting with audiences across generations through emotionally charged songs about heartbreak, jealousy and growing up, she’s achieved absolutely incredible chart success for a debut artist. We are thrilled to celebrate her unique voice and the enormous impact she’s had on fans around the globe in such a short time.”
