Janet Jackson is one of the many inspirational black queens that will be honored at BGR this year. Janet has been in the music industry for 40 years and has been producing hit after hit. The “Rhythm Nation” singer will reportedly receive the Rock Star award at Black Girls Rock 2018—the same award Rihanna won in 2016—surrounded by a sea of other phenomenal women and all who appreciate them. Fittingly, Queen Latifah will be handling hosting duties for the show, which is being taped in her hometown of Newark, N.J. this Sunday (Aug. 26).

Other phenomenal women to be honored at the award ceremony, which officially airs on Sept. 9, include Tarana Burke (Community Change Agent award), Mary J. Blige (Star Power award), Lena Waithe (Shot Caller award), Judith Jamison (Living Legend award) and Naomi Campbell (Black Girl Magic award).
