There are also new categories to further expand the scope of celebration, and promote inclusivity in the entire process. One of the new categories includes Best Music Exec: A category rewarding the music professionals behind some of the biggest wins.

Also, the Headies’ Next Rated Category will now be giving out a Bentley. Whoever wins the Next Rated will get a Bentley 2022 model.
