Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" reign hasn't let up. Well into 2018, last summer's darling of chart-toppers is still No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs, and will likely tie in with Enrique Iglesias, who has the all-time weeks-at-No. 1 record with "Bailando," featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona (41 weeks).

2017 also saw the rise of breakout acts like trap artists Bad Bunny, who recently announced his first-ever U.S. tour. Ozuna, who despite being snubbed for a Latin Grammy at the 18th annual awards show, emerged as one of the most successful reggaetoneros of his generation, with hits like "Criminal" alongside Natti Natasha and "La Modelo" featuring Cardi B

Jennifer Lopez kicked off the new year by announcing the final stint of her record-setting Las Vegas residency, which runs June 13 through September 29, 2018. All the while, the multi-hyphenate is still concerting humanitarian efforts for her native Puerto Rico in the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria. 

With Camila Cabello's formal solo debut this past week, rising voices in the male-dominated industry of urban Latin like Karol G and a highly anticipated bio-series focusing on the life and times of global megastar Nicky Jam, who will dominate in 2018? Place your ballot below!
