Fan community of the year: Three days of rain.

Without the support of their fans, the group would hardly have been able to survive everything that happened to them in 2023, and they certainly wouldn’t have been able to make such a spectacular comeback. For this, a special thank you and the victory in our nomination.

Surprise of the year – Kukoyaki

VK Music users voted in this category. This year we were surprised by the various occasions generously distributed by Pasha Technik, Philip Kirkorov, INSTASAMKA with Lolita, 10AGE, Dzhigan, PHARAOH and Klava Koka. But what surprised people the most was the addition to the Kukoyak family. We can only guess if the second son will become a new millionaire blogger!

Additionally, VK Music editors compiled the final playlist of the year with the top 30 tracks. Sergey Mudrik, chief editor of VK Music:

“There was a place for all the winners of our main nominations, which is logical and confirms their fairness.

From the hip-hop segment, only the authors of the hit BANDANA Big Baby Tape and kizaru remained on the list, from the pop segment, the queen ANNA ASTI, who in 2023 actively developed last year’s success.
