Meet the Best Latin Pop Album Nominees at the 2020 Grammys

Luis Fonsi

Luis Fonsi

The 2020 Grammys ceremony is two days away, and Latin artists can’t wait to hear the final results. One of the strongest categories this year is best Latin pop album, in which all five contenders perfectly represent the category -- and prove that ballads and romanticism are still alive.

Meet the nominees below.


Vida, Luis Fonsi

Vida is a well-balanced album that digs deep into Fonsi’s R&B and romantic sides, with soaring ballads and mid-tempo tracks that make good use of his beautiful voice. The set includes hits like “Despacito” and “Echame La Culpa” with Demi Lovato.

#ElDisco, Alejandro Sanz

Produced by Alejandro Sanz with Julio Reyes Copello and Alfonso Pérez, #ElDisco, released April 5, has 10 tracks, including two-previously released singles with Camila Cabello ("Mi Persona Favorita") and Nicky Jam ("Back in the City"). “I wanted my essence to come through,” Sanz previously told Billboard. “Even such an eclectic album has to have a certain aesthetic. I wanted contemporary, but powerful, arrangements.”

Some of Maluma's co-writers include Servando Primera, Mambo Kings, Vicente Barco and Luian Malavé Nieves.

Fantasía, Sebastian Yatra

The 12 songs included in Sebastian Yatra’s Fantasia represent a story lived by the 25-year-old singer. "There's something we all have in common -- love. So if I write the songs that are born from my soul about the most difficult moments or the happiest, I know that I can connect with people," Yatra previously told Billboard.

Montaner, Ricardo Montaner

Ricardo Montaner’s Montaner is his 24th studio album, and on it, the Argentine-Venezuelan singer-songwriter explores new sounds, getting creative in addition to his usual romanticism.

The 10-track album was co-produced by Camilo Echeverry, Jon Leone and Richy López (Julka Bros), Mau y Ricky, among others, and for the first time, Montaner collaborated with an urban artist, Farruko.
