These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The 2018 awards are based on the reporting period of April 8, 2017 through March 31, 2018.Awards are given for the top album, artist and single in a number of different music genres.
The record for most Billboard Music Awards won is held by Drake with 27. The record for most Billboard Music Awards won by a female artist is held by Taylor Swift who has won 23 awards
