Bad Bunny Wins Big at 2022 Latin GRAMMYs
Bad Bunny won big at the 2022 Latin GRAMMYs. The Puerto Rican singer, who led the pack with 10 nominations, took home five trophies at Thursday night’s show in Las Vegas.
Bad Bunny’s album, Un Verano Sin Ti, not only stormed the charts in 2022, it proved to be a big hit at the Latin Grammys as well, with the singer winning the award for Urban Music Album of the Year for the LP.
He also scored four more trophies in a variety of categories, including Urban Fusion/Performance for Tití Me Preguntó, Best Urban Song for Tití Me Preguntò, Best Rap/Hip-Hop song for De Museo and Best Reggaeton Performance for Lo Siento BB:/ with Tainy and Julieta Venegas.
In addition to being a double nominee in half of the categories he took home trophies in, Benito was also nominated in the Album of the Year and Record of the Year categories.
While he walked away with some of the night’s biggest awards, Bad Bunny was unable to accept them in person, as he’s performing on the South American leg of his World’s Hottest Tour.
Bad Bunny is also expected to make history early next year at the 2023 GRAMMY Awards, with the 28-year-old superstar earning nominations in the Album of the Year category as well as for Best Música Urbana Album. His dual AOY nominations make Un Verano Sin Ti the first-ever album to be nominated for Album of the Year at both the GRAMMYs and the Latin GRAMMYs.
Meanwhile, with her victory for this year’s acclaimed Motomami LP, Rosalía became the first woman to twice win for album of the year. The 30-year-old Barcelona native previously won album of the year in 2019, for her second album, El Mal Querer. And Uruguayan singer-songwriter Jorge Drexler took home seven awards, upping his lifetime Latin Grammy count to 14.
