SESAC has named Sony Music Publishing Publisher of the Year and declared a tie for Song of the Year between Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” and Jack Harlow & Lil Nas X’s “Industry Baby.”

Harlow, who wrote “Industry Baby,” was named Songwriter of the Year for the second consecutive year. Nine-time Grammy winner Bryan-Michael Cox was awarded the SESAC Icon Award highlighting his achievements as a songwriter and producer.

The SESAC songwriters and music publishers behind this year’s most-performed songs were feted Wednesday at The London in West Hollywood at the first in-person ceremony in several years.

“Our songwriters and producers have created amazing, record-breaking music and we’re honored to represent their songs,” said SESAC Performing Rights Chief Creative Officer Sam Kling. “With our awards now being hosted in Los Angeles, this is an exciting night highlighting an incredible group of songwriters and artists.”
