"'Warrior' is the first time that I worked with either Mark Foster or Kimbra," said A-Trak. "We worked on the song in something like a dozen cities, I'm so thankful to the fans for giving us this award and also a huge shout out to the video directors Daniels. Thanks!"

"I'm happy to win this Woodie because this is one the fans pick and that's what matters most!" said Danny Brown.
