Latin Grammys 2018: Rosalía and J Balvin, in charge of the Latin Grammy nominees 2018 | Culture



The moment of grace of the Spanish Rosalía and his urban flamenco was recognized this Thursday with five nominations to the Latin Grammys. Rosalía, who last year was nominated as best new artist, this year aspires to the highest awards with only one song, Badly, from the album The bad want, which is published next November 2. The most nominated artist of this edition is the Colombian J Balvin, with eight nominations for a complete album (You vibrate) and three different songs. Interestingly, the two big favorites of the next Latin Grammy they sound together in one of the successes of the moment, Brightness, which appears on the nominated album by J Balvin.

The nominations were announced this Thursday by the Latin Recording Academy, based in Miami. In addition to J Balvin and Rosalía, they tie four nominations Jorge Drexler, with the disc Ice lifesaver; Kany García (It's me), David Aguilar (Following), Natalia Lafourcade, with his second record of homage to Latin American folklore (Muses, Vol.2) and the Brazilian Anaadi (Noturno). With three nominations, including best recording of the year, are Bomba Estéreo and Pablo Alborán.

With Rosalía and J Balvin, the top favorites of the Latin Grammy they are urban rhythms again. It happened last year with the Puerto Rican battle between Luis Fonsi and Residente. Gabriel Abaroa, president of the Latin Recording Academy, believes that the urban artists who are triumphing are those who avoid repetition. "It's what triumphed Slowly and that is what is happening with Badly", He says in a telephone interview with EL PAÍS. "The risk that the urban genre has is to repeat itself. Those that do not repeat themselves are the ones that stand out. Like the album J Balvin has done, which is very risky. "
