Rosalía, Alejandro Sanz, J Balvin, Bad Bunny among Latin Grammy nominees

NBC News 1 month ago

The Latin Recording Academy announced the nominees for the 20th annual Latin Grammy Awards on Tuesday and Spanish artists Alejandro Sanz and Rosalía are leading the pack with eight and five nominations, respectively.

Sanz, who has already received the Latin Grammy for Album of the Year three times — more times than any other artist — is nominated twice in the Record of the Year category for “Mi Persona Favorita” with Camila Cabello and “No Tengo Nada.” He is also up for Grammys in the Song of the Year, Best Pop Song and Best Long Form Music Video categories.

Rosalía, whose sophomore album “El mal querer” is a fusion of flamenco and R&B infused tracks, won two Latin Grammy Awards in 2018. This year, she’s been nominated for awards in the Record of the Year, Best Pop Song and Best Urban Song categories.

Both Sanz and Rosalía are veterans of the award ceremony and are from Spain, highlighting some recent discussions about whether singers from the European country are Latinx, as the term refers to people who are of Latin American descent. However, Billboard defines Latin music as any song whose lyrics are at least 51 percent in Spanish and musicians point to the cross-cultural influences that Latin American music has had on Spanish music and vice-versa — traditionally drawing listeners across the continents through the common language.

Other nominees include Draco Rosa, who returned to music eight years after producing his last original project with a rock album titled “Monte Sagrado.” The album is nominated for Best Rock Album and his song, “Hotel de los Encuentros” has been nominated for Best Long Form Video.

While J Balvin and Bad Bunny, who are part of the top 10 most streamed artists worldwide, were barely represented in this year’s Grammy Awards nomination list, the pioneering artists have been nominated for six Latin Grammy Awards in total.
