The disc The Evil Will and the collaborations in With Height, Me x You, You x Me Y TKN they took her to the top.
However, everything indicates that Rosalía has not reached a ceiling. The eight nominations that the Catalan has won for her album motomami They presage that this 2022 his record will increase significantly… We will have to see what the members of the Academy say!

One in the category of Best Alternative Song, another for Best Pop Song rock and the last one, for the complete album for Best Recording Engineering.
Of course, it should be noted that being strict, Antón Álvarez would have another Grammy in his palmares, the one he took along with Rosalía and El Guincho for his work writing the song Malamente de El Mal Querer de Rosalía, which in 2018 won the award for best Alternative song.

Pablo Alborán, the eternal nominee
Among the Spanish artists who have not yet managed to bring to the national territory, a golden gramophone stands out Pablo Alborán, whom some have come to point out as a victim of the “curse of the Grammys“, since the Academia Latina has nominated him from Málaga about twenty times, but has never awarded him. Of course, this fact can change this 2022, as Pablo competes again in these awards to try to win the Record of the Year award for Castillo de Arena.
