Los Angeles, CA – Post Malone stole the show on Wednesday (October 14) after picking up a total of nine awards at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards — the most of any artist.

Taking place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, the show saw Posty win a bulk of the 16 awards he was nominated for, including Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Streaming Songs Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Male Artist, Top Rap Tour and Top Rap Album.

“I’m honestly blown away by the love that everybody’s shown to me,” Post said. “Honestly, I appreciate it more than I could ever express. It’s kind of a big deal for me and everybody involved because we work our asses off, and we just try our best every day.”

He continued, “To be able to reach out to people who might not have anybody to turn to, and just be able to reach out and show everybody that they’re not alone and music can bring everybody together is absolutely incredible. I just want to say thank you so very much ladies and gentlemen. I’m blown away, I’m floored. Thank you very, very, very much.”

Khalid came away with the second-most wins with five awards, including Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Male Artist, Top R&B Tour, Top R&B Album and Top R&B Song. After that, Kanye West managed four wins in the Top Gospel Artist, Top Gospel Album, Top Christian Album and Top Gospel Song categories. Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus also won four each, with the chart-topping “Old Town Road” securing Top Hot 100 Song, Top Streaming Song, Top Selling Song and Top Rap Song.

Elsewhere, Cardi B won Top Rap Female Artist, while Summer Walker won Top R&B Female Artist.

Killer Mike was also honored with the first-ever Change Maker Award at the APEX Museum of African-American history. Presented by Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, the award honors an artist or group that speaks truth to power through music, celebrity, and community and is active in their community and charitable with time, money, or influence to improve the lives of others.

“Kids out there that sing and dance, what you do is worthy,” Mike said. “You are artists, and your goal should be to express the very reality around you in the very most beautiful or ugliest of ways that you see fit. You matter more than you know. The kids that are organizing, plotting, planning, strategizing, right there on the ground mobilizing, you are needed more than ever. I’m a culmination of all these things.”

NBC and MRC have also donated $1M to Greenwood, a digital banking platform Mike founded with civil rights activist Andrew J. Young and Bounce TV founder Ryan Glover for Black and Latinx people.
