iHeartRadio will honor three-time Grammy winner and seven-time Grammy nominee Chance The Rapper with the 2018 iHeartRadio Innovator Award for his groundbreaking accomplishments in the music industry and his unsurpassable contributions to social causes. As an independent artist, he has risen to the top of hip-hop superstardom and uses his voice to fight for youth empowerment through the arts, education and civic engagement with his non-profit organization, SocialWorks. The multi-faceted artist, activist, actor and entrepreneur is also nominated in the Best Remix category. Past honorees of the iHeartRadio Innovator Award include Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, U2 and Bruno Mars.
At this year’s awards, L’Oréal Paris and iHeartRadio will present Camila Cabello with the first-ever Fangirls Award, which recognizes a female artist who has pushed boundaries with her music and message while inspiring her fans around the globe.
Camila embodies the L’Oréal Paris philosophy, “Because You’re Worth It” demonstrating ambition, passion and a strong sense of self-worth by breaking out on her own with her first solo album, “Camila.” Her No. 1 hit single, “Havana,” topped Billboard’s Pop Songs chart for seven weeks, marking the longest reign of a song by a solo female artist in nearly five years.
