By Iceland Review

Last night, Icelandic musician Björk won a BRIT Award in the category International Female Solo Artist at a ceremony in London. She was unable to be present at the ceremony, since she was recording, but sent a pre-recorded message: “Thank you so much, immensely friendly Britain for the absolutely best title ever! I’m going to enjoy very much being the best international female for a whole year. I’m very honored. Thank you.”

Other nominees in her category were Ariana Grande, Courtney Barnett, Lana Del Rey and Meghan Trainor.

This is the fifth time Björk is awarded a Brit Award, Vísir reports.
