This Tuesday, the Latin Recording Academy announced in the city of Miami, in Floridato this year’s nominees for the Latin Grammy Awards, whose celebration will take place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 17.
As is tradition, the Puerto Rican singer Benito Martinez Ocasiobetter known as Bad Bunny, heads the list with 10 mentions, including album and recording of the year thanks to his most recent production “Un Verano Sin Ti” and the song “Ojitos Lindos” as a duet with Bomba Estéreo, respectively.
It is worth mentioning that the Puerto Rican appears in all the categories of the Urban section of the Latin Grammys, among them: Best Reggaeton Performance, with the song “Yonaguni”; Best Fusion / Urban Interpretation, for the song “Volví” a duet with the group Aventura of the singer Romeo Santos; and also for “Titi asked me”.
However, not everything is hunky-dory, since “Bad Rabbit” does not appear in the category of Song of the Year, in which the Spanish singer, Rosalía, does appear, with her single “Hentai”. This is another of the relevant figures of the Latin awards.
However, “Hentai” will have to measure its strength against the songs “Agua”, by Daddy Yankee and Rauw Alejandro; “Something is better” by Mon Laferte; “Baloncito viejo”, by Carlos Vives and Camilo; “Red Heels”, by Sebastián Yatra; and “Tocarte” by Jorge Drexler and C. Tangana.
According to Manuel Abud, CEO of the Latin Recording Academy, “we continually strive to support and promote the creators of Latin music, and these nominees personify musical excellence and represent the great moment our music is going through,” pick up the news agency AP.
He added: “We are proud to present the nominations with this diverse group of talented artists, who reflect the evolution of our Academy as a modern and relevant institution, thus officially kicking off the twenty-third season of the Latin Grammy”.
Proof of this is the Best New Artist category, a section that includes talents that promise to establish themselves as the favorites of the new generations, including Angela Álvarez, Sofía Campos, Cande y Paulo, Clarissa, Silvana Estrada, Pol Granch, Nabález , Tiare, Vale, Yahritza and Her Essence, and Nicole Zignago.
Some artists like Fito Páez have three nominations, including Best Pop/Rock Album for “Los Años Salvajes”; and Enrique Bunbury, appears among the nominees for Best Rock Song for “Waiting for a signal”; same category in which the Mexican group Molotov appears, with the single “No Olvidamos”.
According to the Latin Recording Academy, the artists were selected from more than 18,000 entries in 53 categories; and the songs to accept their eligibility, had to have 51 percent of their lyrics in Spanish, Portuguese or any indigenous dialect of Latin America.
