Kimbra wins Best Pop Artist at 2018 VNZMAs

  • 15/11/2018

Superstar Kimbra has taken out the Best Pop Artist award at the 2018 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards (VNZMAs).

Her latest album, Primal Heart, was released in April and was positively received by critics, according to Metacritic.

On Thursday night, the Hamilton hitmaker was nominated alongside Six60 and Drax Project. She wasn't at the event but shared a video in thanks, with Talking Heads' David Byrne presenting her with her trophy.

"Thank you New Zealand - I think I'll drink to you guys!" she said.

Kimbra previously described her album as being all about courage and tackling your fears.

"I think I've shared a new side of myself on this new record. I tried to really feature the voice in a very raw way and bring it out of the production," she told Newshub in July.

The Kiwi singer previously won two Grammys for her hit 'Somebody That I Used To Know' with Gotye in 2013, becoming only the third New Zealander to win a Grammy award.
