In anticipation of Sunday’s 63rd annual Grammy Awards, Billboard is asking fans to pick the Latin pop or urban album they hope Grammy voters picked as the winner.
In the newly renamed Latin category, Bad Bunny’s record-breaking YHLQMDLG is up against Camilo’s debut album Por Primera Vez, Kany García’s collaborations set Mesa Para Dos, Ricky Martin’s surprise EP Pausa, and Debi Nova’s 3:33.
Bunny’s YHLQMDLG — which made history on the Billboard charts when it debuted at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums and No. 2 on the Billboard 200 — is home to old-school perreo, romantic reggaeton and Latin trap bangers with a global appeal. Meanwhile, Camilo’s debut album features profoundly intimate tracks where here he sings accompanied only by his guitar to catchy pop songs with a light reggaetón beat and fanciful lyrics.
García went all out with Mesa Para Dos, an all-duets album featuring an eclectic cast of characters — from blind Argentine guitarist Nauel Pennisi to Mexican pop star Carlos Rivera. Martin’s Pausa is his first set since 2015 featuring collaborations with Sting, Carla Morrison, Pedro Capó and Diego El Cigala, among others. The set is packed with introspective, poignant and melancholic lyrics.
Lastly, Nova’s fourth studio album 3:33 is home to a collection of 11 beautiful, heartwarming tracks that was released following the Costa Rican singer-songwriter’s series of concerts in her native country. It won best engineered album at the 2020 Latin Grammys.
Below, vote for the album you hope Grammy voters picked for best Latin pop or urban album.
