Nicky Jam Awarded With SESAC Latina Award at Los Angeles Concert
With an already unbearable heat wave passing through Los Angeles, things got even hotter when Nicky Jam stopped by with his Fenix Tour. The concert took place at the Microsoft Theater on Friday (July 29), bringing together fans who were more than ready to dance and sing the night away with the hottest reggaetonero in town.
Before the Nicky jumped onstage, De La Ghetto, Zion Y Lennox, Alx Veliz and Valentino riled up the crowd with their reggaeton anthems.
Zion Y Lennox performed their biggest hits, including "Embriágame," "Pierdo la cabeza," "Doncella" and "Yo voy." They didn’t leave the stage without singing their latest “Otra vez,” which will make its debut on digital platforms on Aug. 5, featuring J Balvin.
Then it was Nicky’s turn to take the stage. His entrance was nothing less than dramatic with visuals that seemed to be taken out of a Hollywood movie. Taking the torch in a volcano-like backdrop, the Boston-born artist kicked off his show with a fan favorite, “Travesuras.”
He then went on to sing back-to-back hits and remixes, including “Cheerleader,” “Sunset,” “Como lo hacía yo,” “Ay vamos,” and the ultimate summer song “El perdón.”
“When I wrote this song, people would tell me it was too romantic and that it wouldn’t be accepted by reggaeton fans,” he told the crowd. “But I told them that people like us also have emotions. And thanks to this song, I am where I am.”
To back that up, SESAC Latina awarded Nicky Jam during the concert with the song of the year award for “El perdón” that he won back in June, but was not at the ceremony to receive the award. Additionally, they presented him with four other awards in honor of his tracks that have reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
“This is all because of you. Without the fans, there is no artist,” an emotional Nicky said.
Just as the concert was about to end, Zion y Lennox joined Nicky to sing the hit “Hasta el amanecer.”
To close off the wild night, the reggaetoneros had a dance battle that turned the crowd crazy seeing Nicky, Zion, Lennox and De La Ghetto do their best sensual reggaeton moves. Truly, a fan favorite moment.
The Fenix Tour has yet to visit U.S. cities like Phoenix and San Diego. He will then take his showcase to Latin American countries including Colombia, Peru and Republica Dominicana.
