Who Has The Most Latin GRAMMY Nominations This Year? 2021 Latin GRAMMYs By The Numbers
The 2021 Latin GRAMMYs nominations list is here, and it's a doozy! While it fully conveys the breadth of the current Latin music landscape, this year's nominees list also writes a new chapter in the stories of today's visionary artists.
Some of the artists with the most nominations at the 22nd Latin GRAMMY Awards include Camilo (10 nominations), Juan Luis Guerra (6 nominations), C. Tangana (5 nominations), and Bad Bunny (4 nominations).
As you comb through the 2021 Latin GRAMMYs nominations list, here are some milestones to keep in mind:
After receiving five Latin GRAMMY nominations in 2020, Camilo doubles his nods with a whopping 10 nominations this year
Today's nomination announcement marks a banner day for Colombian singer/songwriter Camilo, who leads the 2021 Latin GRAMMYs nominations with a total of 10 nods, including nominations in major categories like Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album. He's even nominated twice in both the Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year categories.
Even with many Latin GRAMMY wins to his name, Juan Luis Guerra celebrates the most Latin GRAMMY nominations he has ever received in a single year
The Dominican bachata rosa legend has 20 Latin GRAMMY wins and 40 total nominations to date, with his first nods and wins dating back to the 1st Latin GRAMMY Awards in 2000. This year, Guerra is up for Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, and four other categories.
If he wins, C. Tangana could continue a remarkable streak of Latin GRAMMY wins
In total, the Spanish rapper has been nominated for nine Latin GRAMMYs, including five nominations this year, and has won two Latin GRAMMYs for his work with Rosalía. This year, C. Tangana is nominated for Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year and Best Pop/Rock Song; he's also nominated twice in the Best Alternative Song category.
Bad Bunny stays on top after an incredibly productive 2020
Bad Bunny's EL ÚLTIMO TOUR DEL MUNDO, the Puerto Rican superstar's latest album—and his third album of 2020—is up for Album Of The Year and Best Urban Music Album. He earned nine nominations at the 2020 Latin GRAMMYs, only trailing J Balvin, who earned 13 nominations that year, and took home a Latin GRAMMY win for Best Reggaeton Performance for "Yo Perreo Sola."
6 of the 11 Best New Artist nominees are women
This year, Guilla Be, Maria Becerra, Zoe Gotusso, Rita Indiana, Paloma Mami, and Juliana Velásquez all received a nomination in the coveted Best New Artist category. Mike Bahía won for Best New Artist at the 2020 Latin GRAMMYs, while women took the title the two years prior: Nella in 2019 and Karol G in 2018.
