Nominated for the Latin Grammy Awards 2021: Camilo, Juan Luis Guerra


Lee toda the list of nominados in Spanish.

Colombian pop singer-songwriter Camilo and Dominican bachata pioneer Juan Luis Guerra top this year’s nominees for the 22nd Latin Grammy Awards.

Camilo is nominated in 10 categories, including Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Disc of the Year, for which he is nominated twice: for “Vida de Rico” and “Amén”. The latter is a collaboration with his wife, Evaluna Montaner, his brothers Mau y Ricky and their father, the Argentinian-Venezuelan hitmaker Ricardo Montaner.

Guerra’s six nominations include Album of the Year and Record of the Year. He is also nominated in the tropical and traditional pop vocal categories, for songs from his EP “Private”.

C. Tangana, the Spanish rapper-singer who won two Latin Grammys for writing songs on Rosalía’s “El Mal Querer”, received five nominations, including Album of the Year for “El Madrileño”. His “Te Olvidaste”, which stars the first-time nominee and Los Angeles-based independent rocker, Omar Apollo, is nominated for the record of the year.

Bad Bunny is up for four awards this year, including Album of the Year for “El Último Tour del Mundo”. “Dákiti”, his common reggaetón-pop hit with Jhay Cortez, made history when he topped both the Billboard Hot Latin Songs charts and the Global 200; it peaked at No. 5 on the Hot 100. However, “Dákiti” was not nominated for either the record or the song of the year; instead, it’s up for Best Urban Song.

Regional Mexican music is poorly represented in the major categories this year. Most notably, “Que Se Sepa Nuestro Amor”, the steamy mariachi duo of Mon Laferte and Alejandro Fernández, is nominated for song of the year, while “Un Canto por México, Vol. II ”, by Natalia Lafourcade, 14 times Latin Grammy winner, is in the running for album of the year. (Lafourcade won album of the year in 2020 for “Un Canto por México, Vol. I.”)

Women make up more than half of the top 11 new artists nominated; among them are Chilean-American R&B star Paloma Mami, Argentine YouTuber-turned-singer María Becerra and queer Dominican artist and novelist Rita Indiana.

After being skipped for Best New Artist in 2020, Puerto Rican urban star Rauw Alejandro received nominations for record and song of the year for his 2021 “Todo de Ti” disco cover smash. His single with Camilo, “Tattoo (Remix)”, is nominated for urban fusion / performance.

Reggaeton star J Balvin, who previously criticized the Latin Recording Academy for neglecting the genre, is nominated for Song of the Year and Urban Song for “Agua”, her collaboration with Tainy. “Agua” was the first single from the soundtrack of “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run”.

“Patria y Vida,” which was adopted by protesters during this summer’s uprisings against the Cuban government, is nominated for song of the year and urban song. The collaboration between Cuban artists – living on the island and exiles from it – has found an echo far beyond the country and its diaspora. The song is performed by Gente de Zona, Yotuel Romero d’Oishas, ​​Descemer Bueno, Eliécer “El Funky” Marquez and Maykel Osorbo, a rapper who has been detained in Cuba since May 18.

The Weeknd, who in November called the English-language Grammys “corrupt” after failing to receive nominations, was nominated for a Latin Grammy. “Hawái (Remix)”, his hit song with Colombian pop star Maluma, is nominated for urban fusion / performance.

Following a COVID-aware virtual ceremony in 2020, this year’s Latin Grammys will air from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on November 18.
