Latino artists with the most popular videos were recognized for the third consecutive year at the Heat Latin Music Awards, which took palace June 8 at Playa Juanillo beach in Cap Cana, Dominican Republic.

J Balvin dominated with three awards, including a win in the video of the year category. Carlos Vives followed Balvin with two trophies: best tropical artist and the golden award, the latter handed out by last year's winner Ricardo Montaner.
