4 Artists to Follow at the 2021 Latin GRAMMYs

Grab some popcorn and get ready to watch the Latin GRAMMYs! The 22nd annual Latin GRAMMYs are set to air November 18, 2021. The Latin Recording Academy created the Latin Grammy Awards as a way to recognize outstanding achievement within the Latino community.

Nominations have been revealed for this year’s award show. Vamos Foods dives into the top nominees of the year, including front-runner Camilo, as well as Juan Luis Guerra, C. Tangana, and Bad Bunny. Take a look!

Keep a close watch on Camilo:

Colombian pop star, Camilo, comes in as the front-runner for this year’s Latin GRAMMYs. Camilo will enter the awards show with 10 nominations, the most nominations amongst all of the contestants. He is covering ground with nominations in the three big categories: Song, Record, and Album of the Year. He is twice nominated for “Vida de Rico” and “Amén”. “Amén” is a family effort… it’s a collaboration with Camilo’s wife, Evaluna Montaner, her brothers, Mau y Ricky, and their father, Ricardo Montaner.

Juan Luis Guerra is hoping to defend his title:

Dominican bachata star, Juan Luis Guerra, has six nominations at this year’s Latin GRAMMYs. He has had 20 wins in the past, and has been nominated a whooping 40 times to date. This year, Guerra is a contender in both Record and Album of the Year, as well as in four other categories. His songs from his “Privé” album make him a contender in the Tropical and Pop Vocal categories.

Will C. Tangana continue his streak?

Spanish rapper C. Tangana is looking to maintain his Latin GRAMMYs streak at this year's award show. He has been nominated a total of nine times, with five nominations this year. He is nominated this year for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Pop/Rock Song, as well as being nominated twice within the Best Alternative Song category. His album, “El Madrileño”, will go head to head against Camilo’s “Mis Manos” and Bad Bunny’s “El Último Tour Del Mundo”.

Was Bad Bunny overlooked this year?

Bad Bunny received four nominations this year, following a successful 2020 Latin GRAMMYs, where he received nine nominations (trailing just behind J Balvin, who received 13 nominations that year). This year, Bad Bunny made history with the first ever all-Spanish album to top the Billboard 200 chart. This album, “El Último Tour Del Mundo”, is up for Album of the Year. This is Bad Bunny’s only major nomination this year. His song “Dákiti” is up for Best Urban Song, while “Booker T” is hoping to take home Best Hip-Hop Song.
