Dua Lipa, Harry Styles & All the Record-Setters From the 2021 Brit Awards

Dua Lipa was the top winner at the 2021 Brit Awards. The stylish singer won two awards: British album of the year for Future Nostalgia and female solo artist.

Future Nostalgia won a Grammy on March 14 for best pop vocal album. It’s the first Brit winner for British album of the year that has won a Grammy in any category since David Bowie’s Blackstar, which won a Grammy for best alternative music album four years ago.

Lipa won British female solo artist for the second time in four years. She is just the fourth two-time winner in this category since 2000, following Dido, Adele and Emeli Sandé.

Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” took the Brit Award for British single, nine years after Styles shared the award in that category with his One Direction bandmates for the fizzy “What Makes You Beautiful.” Styles is only the second artist to win in that category both solo and as part of a group. He follows Robbie Williams, who won three times with Take That and three times as a solo artist.

Styles won a Grammy two months ago for best pop solo performance with “Watermelon Sugar.” It’s the first Brit winner for British single to also win a Grammy in any category since Adele’s “Hello” five years ago, which won Grammys for record and song of the year and best pop solo performance.

Billie Eilish took international female solo artist for the second year in a row. She’s just the second artist to win two years running in that category, following Rihanna (2011-12). Eilish triumphed in a red-hot field that included two past category champs: Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift.

Swift received a special award, the global icon award. She is both the first female winner of that award and the first non-English winner. The only previous honorees are Elton John (2014), Bowie (2016) and Williams (2017).

The Weeknd took international male solo artist, an award won by Michael Jackson, an obvious influence, in 1989. The Weeknd’s award was presented by former first lady Michelle Obama. This was The Weeknd’s first win in the category.

Haim won international group, an award that was reintroduced after a one-year absence. Haim is the fourth all-female group to win in that category, following The Bangles (1987), TLC (2000) and Destiny’s Child (2002). Haim was a surprise winner over BTS.

Little Mix became the first all-female group to win British group. Previous all-female groups to receive nods in the category include Spice Girls, Girls Aloud and Sugababes. This was the third nomination in the category for Little Mix, who beat, among others, The 1975, who are two-time winners in the category.

Arlo Parks won breakthrough artist. She’s the first woman to win the award since Lipa three years ago. Parks is 20, the same age as Griff, who is this year’s rising star award winner. That award was previously announced.

J Hus took British male solo artist for the first time.
