The 25-year-old “No More Tears Left to Cry” superstar will accept the award at a ceremony held on December 6 in New York City.

Ariana Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular musical trend or path in the industry. Certain in her convictions, she consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isn’t hospitable to that sort of strength in young women. She’s got guts, she’s making some of the best music of her career, and she’s absolutely deserving of Woman of the Year,” said Billboard exec Ross Scarano.

In addition to her music success, the company credits her commitment to causes including advocating for gun control legislation, mental health awareness, gender parity and the Black Live Matters movement, as well as her One Love Manchester benefit concert in response to aid the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing, which raised more than $23 million.

Congrats, Ari!
