From the heartfelt “Te Quedaste” to their recent urban jam “Eso No Va A Suceder,” Ha*Ash has been schooling us on love, heartbreaks, personal growth, and women empowerment through their music. Not only have their lyrics touched many people’s hearts since 2002, but it has nabbed them many awards, including from MTV and Premio Lo Nuestro. Though they get invited as performers and to strut the red carpet, they have yet to receive a Latin Grammy nomination.
After the nominees were announced for the 19th annual Latin Grammys Thursday morning (Sept. 20), Ha*Ash did not hesitate to pen a message to The Latin Recording Academy for not recognizing their hard work in the music industry.
“Ever since we kicked off our career 16 years ago, our biggest dream, among other things, was to have a Grammy or at least a nomination,” Mexican-American sisters Hanna and Ashley Perez wrote.
They noted that after many years of being disillusioned, they felt strong and positive that their recent album 30 de Febrero would nab them a nomination for the 2018 Latin Grammys — but that was not the case. “Today after realizing that it didn’t make the cut once again, we realized that we can’t have it all in life and what we do have is what really makes us happy,” they stated.
“Maybe the people who decide on the Grammys don’t like our music but our music is not for them, it’s for our fans,” they added, giving a special recognition to the people who year after year have supported their music by going to their shows and buying their albums.
“Thank you for these 16 years of music, for the six albums, for letting us meet so many countries,” they expressed. “We take you always in our hearts.”
