2022 ASCAP Pop Music Awards Winners Announced

Recognizing the top songwriters, producers and publishers behind the biggest pop music hits of 2021, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) today announces the winners of the 2022 ASCAP Pop Music Awards.

Celebrating a year of record-breaking success and fresh off three Grammy wins, Olivia Rodrigo adds the ASCAP Pop Music Awards Songwriter of the Year to her growing collection of industry accolades. Originally known for her quadruple platinum single “Driver’s License”, Rodrigo continued her meteoric rise with Sour, breaking Spotify records while becoming the first artist to simultaneously chart three songs from a debut album in the top 10 of the Billboard Top 100. The pop superstar wins ASCAP’s highest honor – his first-ever ASCAP award – recognizing his “deja vu”, “driver’s license” and “good 4 u” megahits and will accept the award in an exclusive video on the social networks @ASCAP.

As one of the longest hits on the Billboard Hot 100 of all time, “Levitating” was awarded Song of the Year by the ASCAP Pop Music Awards. The multi-platinum hit was written by ASCAP songwriters Clarence Coffee Jr., Sarah Hudson, DaBaby, Stephen “Koz” Kozmeniuk and Dua Lipa and published by Baby Jesus Publishing, Best Coffee in Town, Italians Do It Better, Kobalt Music Publishing, Nyan King Music, Prescription Songs, Sony Music Publishing, South Coast Music Group LLC, Universal Music Publishing Group, Unsub Pub LLC and Warner Chappell Music.

The ASCAP Pop Music Awards Publisher of the Year goes to Sony Music Publishing. Publishing powerhouse wins prestigious recognition for its contributions to pop music in 2021 with top songs such as “Arcade”, “Back in Blood”, “Beers and Sunshine”, “drivers license”, “Kiss Me More” , “Peaches,” “RAPSTAR” and more.

As part of the festivities, ASCAP Experience will host a special ASCAP Pop Music Awards session on @ASCAP Instagram Live. On Wednesday, April 13, top songwriters Tommy Brown and Mr. Franks will discuss their ASCAP-winning songs “34+35”, “positions” and “pov” (all performed by Ariana Grande) and “Holy” ( performed by Justin Bieber), hosted by Republic Records co-president Wendy Goldstein. The session starts at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT. More information about the ASCAP experience is available here.

The ASCAP Pop Music Awards recognize songwriters and editors for the most performed songs of the past year in pop music. Winning songs are determined by data for terrestrial and satellite radio and for actual scheduled and on-demand audio streams that are provided by Luminate (formerly P-MRC Data) in accordance with ASCAP’s publicly available rules.
