The Tu Música Urban Awards have announced the nominees for its first-ever edition today (Jan. 15). Ozuna, Wisin & Yandel, Zion & Lennox, Maluma, Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, Anuel AA and Bad Bunny lead the list.

Tu Música will celebrate urban music from the place that the genre was born, Puerto Rico. The event, produced by Soraya Sánchez and Mr. & Mrs. Entertainment, will broadcast live on Telemundo Puerto Rico from Coliseo de Puerto Rico on Thursday, March 21. It will then be broadcasted in the U.S. on Friday, March 22, at 9:00 p.m. EST.

"I am very excited to be able to produce a recognition event for the urban genre that was long overdue,” Sánchez said in a statement. “Our commitment is to make an event that is relevant locally and internationally, which is important for urban music."

The selection of nominees is based on downloads, streaming, airplay, followers and concerts presented by the artists, mainly on local stages, during the period between January 2018 and January 2019.

“These awards will recognize many people inside and outside the stage that have helped us to have the leading musical genre in this millennium," added José “Pompi” Vallejo, president of Mr. & Mrs. Entertainment.  

The event will recognize those whose have great presence worldwide, as well as the local figures who have made their way into the international music scene.

A selective group of music industry representatives with knowledge in the urban genre -- including radio programmers, announcers, influencers and journalists -- will vote for the final winners.

"For us at Telemundo Puerto Rico, it is an honor to be the channel that will present the first edition of the awards to the greatest exponents of urban music,” concluded José Cancela, president and general manager of Telemundo Puerto Rico.
