Bad Bunny leads the nominations for Latin Grammys

  • 0

Here are five Hispanic and Latin superstars that we can't get enough of on social media!

The nominees for the 23rd Latin Grammy Awards were revealed Tuesday, and Bad Bunny capped off his hot summer.

The Puerto Rican rapper and singer earned the most nominations of any artist with ten nominations, including album of the year.

Rauw Alejandro scored eight nominations and Christina Aguilera, Jorge Drexler, and Rosalia followed with seven each.

Aguilera last won a Latin Grammy Award in 2001 for best female pop vocal album for her first Spanish language record, "Mi Reflejo."

Aguilera returned to the Latin Grammy stage last year after two decades to perform her single "Pa' mis muchachas," along with Becky G, Nicki Nicole, and Nathy Peluso.

This year's nods reflect the musical diversity in the Latin industry. Even though reggaeton and urban has been dominating commercially the last couple of years and will have an unequivocal presence in the awards, other genres such as pop, salsa and alternative are seen across the main categories.

"I am very excited to see that this year there are several of the multiple nominees who are also very successful commercially. This leads us to be very excited that we are going to have a great celebration," Manuel Abud, president of the Latin Grammys, told CNN en Español in an interview via Zoom.

The Latin Grammys will take place on Nov. 17 in Las Vegas.

A list of nominees in several top categories follows below.
