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.
