Lady Gaga, Imanbek Win 2021 Billboard Music Awards for Dance

The 2021 Billboard Music Awards just wrapped up and Lady Gaga was recognized in major dance/electronic categories along with her critically acclaimed 2020 album, Chromatica.

Even up against dance music’s top Billboard acts — The ChainsmokersKygo, Marshmello and Surf Mesa for Top Dance/Electronic Artist, and DJ Snake, Gryffin, Kygo and Kylie Minogue for Top Dance/Electronic Album — Gaga reigned supreme.

The unmistakable queen of pop is known for singing over pulsing dance beats, even since her earliest works and through her rise to fame. With Skrillex, BloodPop, Tchami, Axwell, Madeon and more in the mix, Gaga’s sixth album Chromatica was destined to top the dance charts. The album earned her sixth No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Top Dance/Electronic Song, however, went to Imanbek for his standout hit remix of SAINt JHN‘s “Roses.” Lady Gaga was nominated twice in the category for “Stupid Love” and “Rain on Me” with Ariana Grande. Plus, Surf Mesa and Topic x A7S for their respective singles, “ily (i love you baby)” featuring Emilee and “Breaking Me.”

Dance categories aside, The Weeknd had the biggest night, taking home 10 awards including Top Artist. Pop Smoke won five, including Top New Artist, while BTS and Bad Bunny each earned four. Plus, Taylor Swift, Drake and more.
