The eight new members are: Gabby Barrett and Charlie Puth (“I Hope”); DaBaby and Roddy Ricch (“Rockstar” together, as well as Ricch’s own “The Box”); Dua Lipa (“Break My Heart”); Harry Styles (“Watermelon Sugar”); Lewis Capaldi (“Before You Go”); and Maren Morris (“The Bones”).

A few of those performers notched multiple Titanium Award-winning songs this year, including Ariana Grande (“thank u, next” and “7 rings”), Drake (Travis Scott’s “SICKO MODE” and Chris Brown’s “No Guidance”), Jonas Brothers (“Sucker” and “Only Human”), Khalid (“Talk” and “Better”), Lizzo (“Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell”) and The Weeknd (“Blinding Lights” and “Heartless”). Then there were the truly ubiquitous artists — the only two to rack up three Titanium Award-winning songs in 2020: Post Malone with “Wow.,” “Circles” and “Sunflower,” featuring Swae Lee, and Shawn Mendes with “In My Blood,” “If I Can’t Have You” and the Camila Cabello duet “Señorita.”

Here are the rest of this year’s Titanium Award honorees: Ava Max (“Sweet But Psycho”), Billie Eilish (“bad guy”), blackbear (“hot girl bummer”), Cabello (“Señorita”), Brown (“No Guidance”), Dan + Shay (“Tequila”), Doja Cat (“Say So”), Dua Lipa (“Don’t Start Now”), Ed Sheeran (“I Don’t Care”), Harry Styles (“Adore You”), Justin Bieber (“I Don’t Care”), Kendrick Lamar (“LOVE. feat. Zacari), Lewis Capaldi (“Someone You Loved”), Maroon 5 (“Memories”), Normani (“Dancing With a Stranger”), Sam Smith (“Dancing With a Stranger”), Selena Gomez (“Back to You”), Shaed (“Trampoline”), Swae Lee (“Sunflower”) and Travis Scott (“SICKO MODE”).
