From the 10th Annual Shorty Awards Best in Music

If music is the universal language, it makes sense why so many artists share their lives on social media. Whether Instagramming performances, Snapchatting backstage, or tweeting out where the after party is, musicians are using social media to communicate with their fans in ways other than their sounds and lyrics.

If you’re a brand looking for recognition for your use of social media in this space, enter the Best in Entertainment Shorty Award.

Finalists

finalist
Dua Lipa
Dua Lipa is a record company’s dream. The British model and “dark pop” singer released her self-titled debut album in 2017, with the song New Rules garnering 650M+ YouTube views, and the single Be the One hitting #1 on the UK charts. The Fader created a documentary about her transformation from viral YouTube sensation to full-blown pop star with a…
finalist
Kesha
It’s been over eight years since Kesha hit the pop scene with “TiK ToK,” but in 2017 she reintroduced herself to the world after years of ongoing legal wrangling with her abusive former producer Dr. Luke. She channeled the emotions from that battle into her hit album Rainbow, where she did a professional makeover, dropping the “$” from her name an…
finalist
Khalid
In Khalid’s debut album American Dream, the soulful 19-year old singer looks forward to the next chapter of his life while reflecting on his youth in El Paso, TX. That album helped his popularity spread well beyond El Paso, netting him over 1.4M followers on both Twitter and Instagram. The singles “Location” and “Young, Dumb, and Broke” each surpa…
finalist
Logic
With the release of his moving song “1-800-273-8255,” multi-talented rapper Logic did something more important than just hit the Billboard top 3—he wrote “the most important song” of his life. Its title is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which got an unprecedented amount of attention following the song’s release, receiving…
finalist
SZA
SZA has “Love Galore” for her fans, and when that single went platinum she took to Instagram to thank her 2.6M+ followers for changing her life. It was one of three singles from the 2017 album Ctrl nominated for a Grammy, along with the album itself, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard charts. While on the #CTRLTOUR, the spontaneous and energetic…

Nominees

Amine
Burgeoning hip-hop star Aminé has a name that is often mispronounced, but his sound is unmistakeable. The Portland, Oregon rapper broke through with his debut single “Caroline,” which peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and has amassed 200M+ views on his AmineVEVO YouTube page. Aminé’s smooth style—a throwback to early 2000s rap—wowed Jimmy Fallon …
Chloe x Halle
“Every little thing gonna be alright” when listening to the music of Chloe x Halle, and not just because—as their latest single is named—“I Say So.” The teenage sisters built up a formidable 800K+ YouTube subscribers with their soulful covers of hits by artists like Lorde, John Legend, and Alicia Keys. But it was a cover of Beyoncé’s Pretty Hurts that got 1…
John Mayer
John Mayer the enjoyed a musical comeback in 2017, collaborating with comedian Dave Chappelle on live comedy shows, touring with members of the Grateful Dead in Dead & Company, and releasing his album The Search for Everything. For the first time in years, it’s his projects that are garnering attention and not his love life. That’s no surprise to his 1.3M+ …
Lil Dicky
Not many rappers aspire to be the “Larry David of rap,” but David Burd, aka Lil Dicky, raps about the often-overlooked hilarity in everyday life. A YouTube fixture ever since the video for his song “Ex-Boyfriend” got 1M+ views in 24 hours, Lil Dicky transcended his viral status this year by appearing in a faux-documentary for ESPN as the unknown “4th Ball b…
Phish
Seeing Phish for New Year’s Eve at Madison Square Garden is always a special event for fans, but in summer 2017 the jam band cooked up something even sweeter. Phish made MSG their home for 13 consecutive nights during their “Baker’s Dozen” residency—a record sure to go down in “Phishstory.” Phishheads were treated to free donuts as they entered, with imagin…
Schoolboy Q
ScHoolboy Q had a hit in 2014 with “Man of the Year,” but his fashion statement at the 2017 Grammys should have people calling him “Father of the Year,” wearing a pink “girl power” hoodie while accompanying his daughter, also dressed in pink, on the red carpet of the awards show. While the LA rapper has a history of R-rated rhymes that would have gotten him…
