Madonna is Billboard's 2016 Woman of the Year, but why?

Madonna will receive Billboard's 2016 Woman of the Year award. How Sway? How?!?!? I totally understand Madonna's legacy and how she's been a consistent force in pop culture. But she left no mark in 2016. If she released any music or did something mighty spectacular this year, I must have been hiding under a rock. The only thing she did that made headlines this year was deliver a really shitty Prince tribute.
