Stormzy – or Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr to his mum – had a relatively quiet year. But that’s because he was busy making his new album! This Is What I Mean is the Croydon-born rapper’s follow-up to Heavy Is the Head. Will he win a coveted Beano Power Award?


We haven’t had time to count every BTS quiz on the Beano site – what with Christmas coming up and all that – but there are a lot! It seems that a big chunk of the A.R.M.Y. love to take our BTS quizzes. The band – who earned several Billboard and Grammy nominations in the USA earlier this year – announced that they are to take a break as they are required to do between 18-21 months service for the South Korean military! The band are expected to regroup in 2025 so will you give BTS a big send-off by casting a vote for them?


Olivia Rodrigo

In 2021, Olivia Rodrigo’s single Drivers License – taken from the album Sour – was streamed over one billion times, which is a lot if you think about it. She was also the winner of the Best Music award in last year’s Beano Power Awards. Will your vote help her win for the second year in a row? 

Olivia Rodrigo

Billie Eilish

This Los Angeles singer-songwriter has been busy promoting her 2021 album Happier Than Ever – her massive tour just ended in September and included a headline slot at the world-famous Glastonbury festival! Is Billie your Beano Power Awards: Favourite Music Artist? Vote now!
