Rosalía Wins Album Of The Year At 2019 Latin Grammys

186 0


LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess) — Spanish flamenco-trap singer Rosalía (Rosalía Vila Tobella) took top honors at the Latin Grammys on Thursday night when she won album of the year for her hit El Mal Querer.

Rosalía also took top honors for best contemporary pop album and best urban song for her contributions for J. Balvin’s hit Con Altura.

Alejandro Sanz, who also hails from Spain, took home trophies for record of the year, long-form music video and pop song for “Mi Persona Favorita.”

Bad Bunny won the Latin Grammy for urban album of the year for his hit “X 100Pre” and took the opportunity to address the perception that the Latin Recording Academy again snubbed reggaeton artists this year, noting that the lack of nominations will only push artists in the genre even more.

“With all due respect, reggaeton is part of Latin culture and is representing as much as any other genre worldwide. To my fellow reggaetoneros: Keep giving it your all and we will continue to bring creativity and ingenuity. Our genre has become views, numbers, and let’s keep going and giving people new things,” he said.

Other reggaeton artists, including Daddy Yankee and J Balvin, stayed home from the event this year as a form of protest.

In what was perhaps the biggest surprise of the night, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich appeared to present Juanes with a Latin Grammy artist of the year award.

“Tonight we come full circle,” Ulrich said. “I proclaim myself a Juanes fan. My brother in rock, mi amigo, mi parcero, I am proud to recognize you as the Latin recording artist of the year.”

Juanes went on to perform some of his biggest hits, including “Fijate Bien,” “Querer Mejor,” “A Dios Le Pido,” and “Bonita” with some help from Alessia Cara and Sebastian Yatra.


Hosted by Ricky Martin, the Latin Grammys took place at the MGM Grand in Los Vegas.
