Whereas he had a lesser shot at profitable album of the 12 months and track of the 12 months, two extraordinarily robust classes, it was nearly a certain wager he’d no less than win greatest pop vocal album.

He was in a position to learn her. There’s lots to find in that track, and I feel from a manufacturing standpoint, it was brilliantly finished.”
The profitable track was Natalia Lafourcade’s “De Todas Las Flores,” a stunning recording produced by Adan Jodorowsky, the French-Mexican producer and musician.

Secure to say that nobody noticed this one coming. In a class that included nominees Karol G, Feid, Maria Becerra and Ozuna, style pioneer Tego Calderon took house greatest reggaeton efficiency due to his comeback single “La Receta.” Stunning? Sure. But in addition deserving.
