Karol G won Album of the Year, Natalia Lafourcade won Record of the Year, Shakira and DJ Bizarrap won Song of the Year, and Joaquina was voted Best New Artist to headline the 24th Latin Grammys, held tonight in Seville, Spain.
For the first time, Latin music’s biggest night was held outside the United States, as Seville rocked to the sounds of reggaeton, hip-hop, merengue, tango, and every genre of Latin music.
It was Karol G’s big night, as the singer took home the Latin Grammy for Album of the Year for “Mañana Será Bonito.” She joked from the stage about how much she loves to talk, but in moments like these, she finds herself speechless.
“Es demasiado chimba,” she said of winning the award, which translates to, “It’s very cool.” Karol G added that the album changed her life and she’s happy it changed a lot of people’s lives as well.
Performers on the night included Shakira, Peso Pluma, GALE, Maluma, and Alejandro Sanz. Last year’s winner for Album of the Year, Rosalía, returned as a nominee for Record of the Year.
The Latin Recording Academy also honored Laura Pausini with the Person of the Year award. She won a Grammy for best Latin pop album in 2006 and a Golden Globe in 2021, and she has been nominated for an Academy Award.
The person with the most nominations this year was producer Édgar Barrera, who received 13 nominations across categories for his collaborations with artists including Bad Bunny and Marc Anthony.
U.S. audiences will be able to watch the Latin Grammys on Univision, UniMás and Galavisión at 8 p.m. ET.
