They are followed with seven nominations by Colombian stars Camilo, Karol G, Shakira and composer Kevyn Mauricio Cruz (also known as Keityn). And with six, the Argentine producer and DJ Bizarrap.

The nominations were announced Tuesday (September 19) by the Latin Recording Academy. The 24th edition of the Latin Grammys will take place outside the United States for the first time, in Seville, Spain, on November 16.

“After evaluating more than 19,000 entries, we are pleased to share the nominees of the twenty-fourth edition of the Latin Grammys,” he said. Manuel Abud, CEO of the Latin Recording Academy, in a statement. “This group of creators reflects the musical excellence and richness of Latin music, and we look forward to celebrating them during Latin Grammy Week in Seville, which will be a truly historic moment for our organization.”

Although new luminaries of Mexican music such as Peso Pluma and Grupo Frontera surprisingly do not appear in the coveted section of best new artist, for the first time in history two regional Mexican music songs compete for the Latin Grammy for best song, the Academy confirmed Latin Recording Billboard Español: “She dances alone” by Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma, and “un X100to”.

Other great candidates this year: Pablo Alborán, Bad Bunny, Maria Becerra, Feid, Dave Cutch and Natalia Lafourcade, all with five nominations; and Santiago Alvarado, Paula Arenas, Juanes, and Ovy on the Drums, with four each.
