Billboard Latin Music Awards: Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi Top Winners List

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee

It was a year of “Despacito” and a year of civic music.

The most-played strain of 2017 swept a 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards, winning 6 trophies: prohibited Latin strain of a year; prohibited Latin strain of a year, outspoken event; airplay strain of a year; digital strain of a year; streaming strain of a year; and Latin cocktail strain of a year.

The jubilee of “Despacito,” a strain that regenerated tellurian seductiveness in Latin music, was a wise approach to applaud a 20th anniversary of a Billboard Latin Music Awards on a Telemundo network, that aired a awards live from a Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas (the show’s initial time in Sin City) on Thursday night.

While “Despacito” was not achieved Thursday night (the strain had a live entrance during a 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards), a outcome was far-reaching. Producers Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo won writer of a year for a song, and Daddy Yankee — one of a track’s co-writers (and featured artists) — was a large leader of a dusk with 8 awards. In further to his “Despacito” wins, Yankee took home Latin stroke artist of a year, solo, and songwriter of a year for “Despacito” as good as several other songs that strike Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, including “Hula Hoop” and “La Rompe Corazones” with Ozuna.

He was followed in wins by Luis Fonsi and Justin Bieber, both holding home 7 awards each. In further to his “Despacito” trophies, Bieber won crossover artist of a year, while Fonsi, as a lead performer on “Despacito” and a successive “Echame la Culpa,” won a Hot Latin Songs artist of a year award. 

But it wasn’t only a year of “Despacito”: There was an blast of Latin marks that went tellurian this year and Latin artists who were means to strech fans like never before, mostly with civic or urban-leaning tracks. The night’s performances by mostly outrageous civic superstars enclosed premieres by Ozuna (performing “La Modelo” with Cardi B), Bad Bunny (performing “Amorfoda”), Maluma (“El Prestamo”) and Nicky Jam and J Balvin, who achieved “X” for a initial time on television.

The desired artist of a year award, that takes into care sales, airplay and streaming, went to Ozuna, who had success in all areas interjection to a duration of singles and his entrance manuscript Odisea.

Even cocktail wins had an civic tinge. Following a “Despacito” blast, luminary Shakira was a biggest leader of a night, with 5 awards that enclosed Latin cocktail artist of a year, solo, and Top Latin Albums artist of a year, female. But she also won Hot Latin Songs artist of a year, womanlike for hits that enclosed a decidedly urban-leaning “Chantaje” with Maluma.

In turn, Maluma, a 10-time hopeful (including in 4 categories for “Chantaje”), won amicable artist of a year, a curtsy to his unusual amicable media following.

Regional Mexican music, prolonged a pushing force of Latin strain in this country, got close out from many categorical categories by a perfect force of large civic hits. However, informal Mexican acts still dominated a artist of a year, new category, with Christian Nodal holding a award. Nodal also won informal Mexican artist of a year, solo, and informal Mexican strain of a year. Also entrance in with 3 wins was Romeo Santos, who won Top Latin Albums artist of a year, male; pleasant manuscript of a year; and pleasant artist of a year, solo. 

This year’s special lifetime attainment endowment went to Mexican stone rope Maná, who were respected both for their career as one of a many iconic and durability bands in Latin strain and for their munificent endeavors, quite by their Selva Negra environmental foundation. The organisation achieved dual of a biggest hits: “En el muelle de San Blas” and “Corazon Espinado.”

In a tag categories, Sony Music Latin was a large leader of a evening, holding home 16 of their 20 nominations, including Hot Latin Songs impress of a year and Top Latin Albums tag of a year. Universal Music Latin Entertainment won 3 out of their 10 nominations including Hot Latin Songs tag of a year. On a edition end, Sony ATV won both publisher of a year (Sony/ATV Latin Music Publishing) and edition house of a year (Sony/ATV Music).
