The big stars of reggaeton have come to social networks to complain bitterly about the scarce presence of this musical genre in the nominations for the twentieth edition of the Latin Grammy, which will be delivered on November 14 in Las Vegas.
And while Alejandro Sanz and Rosalía start as favorites monopolizing nominations, urban artists such as Bad Bunny, Ozuna, Daddy Yankee, Sech or De La Ghetto have hardly received specific awards in a few minor categories.
The absence of reggaeton in the most important categories, taken by artists of other different styles, has angered illustrious people like Nicky Jam, J Balvin or Karol G, who have publicly expressed their discomfort under the motto ‘Without reggaeton there is no Latin Grammys’.
Daddy Yankee, nominated in the category of Best Urban / Fusion Interpretation, has stated: “Despite being nominated, I do not agree with the way they treated the genre and many of my colleagues. Remember one very important thing: your platform it was not the one that created this movement. This goes beyond an award. This is culture, credibility, relevance and respect. “
For his part, Maluma has pointed out in an Instagram story that he has a broken heart after all the hard work he did to create his album ’11: 11 ‘. “It’s a disappointment not to have a Latin Grammy nomination. So much effort for the best album I’ve ever done in my life,” he lamented.
