Lostboy’s co-writing credits last year included Tate McRae and Tiësto's 10:35, Kylie Minogue’s Padam Padam, and Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding’s Miracle.

Each song earned him an ASCAP award in the Hot Dance/Electronic Song category. 

Following his breakout success and a BRIT Awards performance, Rema was honoured with two ASCAP awards including Song Of The Year and Top Streaming Song for the huge hit Calm Down, alongside fellow award winners and co-writers Michael “London” Hunter and Andre Vibez.

UK composer Daniel Pemberton landed the Top Box Office Film of the Year ASCAP London trophy for his work on Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
