Labrinth Hand-Picked To Perform Tribute To Madonna At Billboard's 11th Annual Women In Music Event12:42 AM
The 11th annual Billboard Women in Music event took place in New York City on Dec. 9 and concluded with their top honor of Woman of the Year.
In recognition of this award, the "Queen of Pop" herself invited British artist Labrinth to perform an emotional tribute that included "Frozen" and "Like A Prayer," which led into her acceptance of the prize.
"I heard the song 'Jealous' and it blew me away. Not just for the lyrics, but also for Labrinth's intensity and charisma as a singer, and his authenticity as a musician," Madonna said. "It's been awhile since I have been this excited about a new artist."While Labrinth is currently working on his second studio album to be released in 2017, he is featured on Noah Cyrus' newly-released debut single "Make Me (Cry)" which he co-wrote and produced.
Labrinth emerged as a guest artist on British rapper Tinie Tempah's debut single, "Pass Out" - which he also produced and co-wrote - and he instantaneously became a mainstay on the UK charts.
