2020 Music Awards: Best Artist, Album, Song, Verse, Instrumental and more

The year 2020 cemented itself in history with primarily negative attributes; a global pandemic that will likely eliminate the number "19" from Earth's verbiage, police brutality, racial oppression, Donald Trump, and an incalculable amount of other horrendous crises. Where politics, life, and spirituality faltered, music somehow thrived. The light at the end of the tunnel was never at the end of the tunnel at all; it was shimmering in speckles on the walls.

This year provided us with the peaks of well-established artist's careers like Freddie Gibbs and Fiona Apple as well as the ascendance of underdogs like Lil Baby, Megan thee Stallion and redveil.

Our music staff came together to determine who shined the brightest amongst the entertainment industry that boasts the most stars.
