    The Urban Music Awards is the premier, number one, R&B, Hip-Hop, Soul and Dance Music awards ceremony in the world. The Urban Music awards ceremony is held annually in the USA, UK, France, Caribbean and Japan.

    The Urban Music Awards was born out of the need to build a worldwide awards ceremony to recognise the achievement of urban based artists, producers, club nights, dj’s , radio stations, record labels and artist that are or were previously unrecognised within their country of origin and are a product of the current Dance/R&B, Hip-Hop, Neo Soul, Jazz, and dance music scene.

    RDBPast winners at the Urban Music Awards have included; Beyonce, Rhianna, Jay-Z, Nas, Omarion, Danity Kane, Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, Adele, Vybez Cartel, Goldie, Dizzee Rascal, Terri Walker, Sean Paul, Beverley Knight , Raghav, Erup, Lemar, Sway, Boyz2Men, Beenie Man, T.O.K, Craig David, Lethal Bizzle, Shakira, Papoose and many more.

    Jordan Kensington, CEO, of Urban Music Awards and IMG added, “This year, we celebrate UK urban music going pop. There is no denying when we launched IMG in 1999 to support 100% UK acts, there was hardly any awards show or platform in support for UK music. We worked extremely hard to make sure UK urban music got it’s deserving place in pop culture and we are proud to see acts we gave coverage to via our magazines, radio, and the UMA’s 10 years ago make it top 10 in the charts and are now well known names in every single household.”
