J Balvin just broke a new Guinness World Record for making history at the 21st annual Latin Grammys as the most nominated artist in a single year, Billboard has learned.
The Colombian artist leads the reggaeton-heavy nominations with 13 mentions and is nominated twice in multiple categories, including the coveted record of the year, album of the year, and the newly-added best reggaeton performance.
“What speaks for you is your work. All the discipline throughout the years is a cause and effect,” Balvin previously told Billboard. “This is truly beautiful because I’m a dreamer from Medellin, Colombia who wanted to make a statement and we achieved that.”
