Will (Yet Another) Category Rethink Change Urbano’s Fate at the Grammys?

  Will (Yet Another) Category Rethink Change Urbano’s Fate at the Grammys? Latin’s dominant genre keeps getting lumped in with others at the Grammys. This year, a category rethink might change that.Excitement about that change was shortlived. By 2009, the genre was lumped back in with Latin rock and alternative, where it has remained for the past 12 years. Since then, only three urbano (reggaetón, hip-hop, trap) artists have won the category. In 2018 — arguably the height of urbano’s recent renaissance thanks to the global success of artists like J Balvin, Bad Bunny and Ozuna — not a single reggaetón album was nominated. Even at the 2019 Latin Grammys, reggaetón artists were excluded from the main award categories.

From career milestones and new music releases to major announcements and more, Billboard editors highlight the latest news buzzing in Latin music every week. Here’s what happened in the Latin music world this week:

Shakira & The Prince

To further celebrate, she held a one-on-one conversation with fellow council member Prince William. “I’m inspired by his passion and commitment towards combating climate change and repairing our planet,” Shak expressed on Instagram. Check out part of their discussion below.

Hispanic Heritage Month 2020: A Look Back at All the Latin No. 1 Albums of The Year (So Far)

  Hispanic Heritage Month 2020: A Look Back at All the Latin No. 1 Albums of The Year (So Far) In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Billboard takes a look back at the Latin acts whose musical contributions have earned them a spot atop the Top Latin Albums chart in 2020. Eight stalwart Latin performers have topped the tally, which ranks the most popular Latin albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units (comprised of album sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums).

“She said ‘yes’!”

At the beginning of this week, Ricky Montaner of the duo Mau & Ricky, surprised fans by sharing a photo of him and his then-girlfriend Stefania Roitman rocking an engagement ring. “She said ‘yes’” read the caption, revealing that he’s not an engaged man. “I hope that this love that we have for each other inspires you because it inspires me, it gives me hope, it gives me strength, happiness, freedom,” expressed Roitman on her Instagram. “We are now complete,” her proud father-in-law, Ricardo Montaner, said on social media. Watch the sweet proposal below.
