Music fans made sure to make their vote count in Billboard‘s monthly polls, where they could choose their favorite Latin collaboration of each month.
The last twelve months have been packed with huge collabs between stars such as Becky G and Karol G, who delivered the anthem “MAMIII” early in the year, marking the first time they worked together on a song. It won best Latin collaboration in our February poll.
“You sing that song at the top of your lungs and it feels good,” Becky G previously told Billboard. “And us two together is something the industry and fans were waiting for a long time. I was waiting for it. I don’t know how many songs I had invited Karol to be a part of. But like my grandma says, cuando Dios quiere [when God wants].”
In the spirit of the World Cup — which kicked off its 2022 tournament on Nov. 20 and wrapped on Dec. 18, with Argentina emerging as the champions — the euphoric “Tukoh Taka,” by Nicki Minaj, Maluma and Myriam Fares won best collaboration of November. The track is part of the event’s official FIFA soundtrack.
“I am so happy to be part of this FIFA World Cup anthem! I always dreamt of an opportunity like this,” Maluma said in a statement. “Representing Latin music on this global track, alongside amazing artists that sing in English and Arabic, takes our culture to another level.”
Below, see all 12 titles that were voted by fans as best collaborations throughout the year.
