The Latin Grammy nominations are out. Here are the nominees

The Latin Recording Academy unveiled the list of nominees for the 24th annual Latin Grammys on Tuesday morning — setting the scene for several potential upsets at the upcoming ceremony in Spain.

Counting only 12 nominations this year, McAllen, Texas-based songwriter-producer Edgar Barrera is the most nominated contender in 2023. “Un X100to,” his massive cumbia hit with Grupo Frontera and Bad Bunny, is up for the coveted Song of the Year award and Best Regional Song.

Barrera is competing in the brand new category of Songwriter of the Year, as well as Producer of the Year, which he will win in 2021.

Meanwhile, four Colombians compete for the title of second most nominated at the Latin Grammys: seven nominations boast global icon Shakira, whose techno-pop Kiss Off track with Argentinian producer Bizerrap was nominated for both record and song of the year.

“Bichota” superstar Carol Gio is nominated seven times along with her trusted songwriter, Kevin “Katin” Mauricio Cruz Moreno — he helped write Carol’s chart-topping album of the year contender, “Manana Sera Bonito.” Pop darling and Latin Grammy favorite Camilo also tallied seven nominations.

This year’s nominees for Best New Artist are Los Angeles’ own all-woman sereno trio, Connexion Divina, who made a stellar debut at this year’s Coachella. Other contestants include Puerto Rican pop singer Gale, Vallenato artist Ana del Castillo and young Cuban chanteuse Paola Guanche — whose aunt is Latin Grammy-winning musician Aimee Nuviola.

“Ella Baila Sola,” the history-making Mexican ballad from rising stars Eslabón Armado and Peso Pluma, is up for Song of the Year as well as Best Regional Song.

The 24th annual Latin Grammys kicks off Nov. 16 in Seville, Spain, where it will be tape-delayed in the U.S. at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific.

“We’ll be back in the US next year for our 25th anniversary,” Latin Recording Academy CEO Manuel Aboud said in May. “This does not exclude the possibility that we will (hold the award) in a Latin American city in the future. We are also considering Mexico City, Bogotá, San Juan and Buenos Aires.”
