Colombian singer-songwriter Camilo scored seven nominations this year, including album of the year for his third studio effort “De Adentro Pa Afuera.” His other nominations span song of the year, best pop vocal album and best pop song, among others.
Kevyn Mauricio Cruz Moreno, the songwriter behind Karol G and Shakira’s “TQG,” and countless other Latin hits, is also up for seven awards this year. The Medellín native appears twice in the album of the year category for his work on Karol’s “Mañana Será Bonito” and Ricky Martin’s “Play.” He is also listed three times in the song of the year category for his work on Karol and Shakira’s “TQG,” and for Shakira’s “Acróstico” and her and Bizarrap’s “Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53.”
Both Shakira and Karol G are also up for seven awards each. They go head-to-head for record of the year where Karol has been recognized for “Mientras Me Curo Del Cora” and Shakira is up for “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53.” They share a nomination in song of the year for “TQG,” but Shakira also nominated two other times in that same category.
Contenders for best new artist include Latin pop singer Gale and música Mexicana singers Conexión Divina, along with newcomers like Borja, Ana Del Castillo, Natascha Falcão, Paola Guanche, Joaquina, Leon Leiden, Maréh, and Timø. The first group of nominees for the songwriter of the year category features Barrera, Mauricio Cruz, Felipe González Abad, Manuel Lorente Freire, Horacio Palencia and Elena Rose.
