2023 Latin Grammy contenders: Karol G, Rauw Alejandro …

The Latin Grammys are arguably the highest recognition in Hispanic music around the world. This year the award show will likely host some of the biggest and most acclaimed Latin stars. With names like Shakira, Karol G, and Rauw Alejandro all in the mix, who will nab some noms come nomination’s day?

The biggest name in Latin music right now is Karol G. The Colombian singer has made history with her album “Mañana Será Bonito” becoming the first all-Spanish album by a female artist to top the Billboard 200. She is already a two-time Latin Grammy winner, and since she’s likely the biggest urban music star of the season, it’s likely she picks up a couple of awards in the field. However, I don’t know whether she will be able to take home a general field award. Bad Bunny couldn’t last year, and his album was undoubtedly bigger hit than Karol’s. But this year there may be less competition, so perhaps Karol has a chance. Her hit “TQG” with Shakira will also be a likely contender in a couple of categories.

And speaking of Shakira, she’s also had a standout year so far. Besides “TQG,” she could show up with her Ozuna collaboration, “Monotonía,” in the tropical categories. But perhaps her best bet is her Bizarrap collaboration, “BZRP Music Sessions, Vol. 53.” The session went viral on its debut, achieving a top-10 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the global charts. The song might also get a lot of support given that it’s a big rebrand for Shakira, especially with all the controversy she’s faced in the past couple of years. Bizarrap himself is doing well for himself, and could be a double nominee for his global smash hit, “BZRP Music Sessions, Vol. 52” alongside Quevedo. So there’s a case to make for both artists to get two nominations each, which is quite impressive, yet deserved.

The Album of the Year race might be between the aforementioned Karol G and Mexican singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade, a previous winner in the category who is currently the most awarded woman at the Latin Grammys and is looking to extend that record with her newest album, “De Todas las Flores.” The record was acclaimed and is currently enjoying some viral success with the song “El Lugar Correcto.” Plus, Lafourcade is the easy-listening choice that many voters might feel comfortable with, especially considering the anti-urban bias in the Latin recording academy. And an award for Lafourcade would also be deserved, as her album is one of the most lauded of the season so far and Lafourcade herself has been one of the most influential names in Latin music this century.

Of course, we can’t talk about the Latin Grammys without mentioning Bad Bunny and Rosalía. The Puerto Rican superstar will likely be absent from the general categories, but expect him in the urban field for one of his collaborations, likely his Arcángel-led hit “La Jumpa.” Likewise, Rosalía will probably be somewhere on the list for her collaborations with her fiancé Rauw Alejandro from their three-song EP, “RR.” Alejandro himself is probably going to be all over the urban categories with his record “Saturno,” which featured hits like “Lokera” and “Punto 40.”

A few names round out the list of possibilities. Manuel Turizo’s “La Bachata” was a huge hit globally, and is bound to get a couple of general field nominations. Camilo is back with his already-Grammy-nominated “De Adentro Pa Fuera,” which got a nomination for Best Latin Pop Album at the main Grammys. There’s also viral urban sensation Feid, whose “Feliz Cumpleaños Ferxxo Te Pirateamos El Álbum” featured multiple big hits like “Feliz Cumpleaños Ferxxo” and “Normal. ” Feid was also a previous nominee in 2019 and 2020. Finally, watch out for pop singers like Humbe, Rozalén, and Kenia Os.

2024 Grammy predictions: Album of the Year

Karol G: Grammys for Manana Sera Bonito?

When you think of big Latin superstars, you might default to Bad Bunny. However, one of the most consistently successful Latin artists of the past five years has undoubtedly been Karol G, who has notched hits like “Mi Cama,” “Tusa,” “Bichota,” and most recently “Mamiii” and “Provenza.” While Karol’s rise has been perhaps slower than Bad Bunny’s, it does seem like the Colombian superstar has made it, especially with the success of her most recent record, “Mañana Será Bonito.” The album managed to become the first all-Spanish album by a female singer to top the Billboard 200, debuting at number-one with over 90,000 units. “Mañana Será Bonito” is also only the third all-Spanish album to top the chart, with the first two being “El Último Tour del Mundo” and “Un Verano Sin Ti,” both by Bad Bunny. At the last Grammys, we saw that Bad Bunny’s success was rewarded by recording academy members, who nominated him in key categories like Best Pop Solo Performance and Album of the Year. So with Karol shaping up to be this year’s Latin superstar, are we bound to see her in the big leagues at the 2024 awards?

As mentioned above, Karol has the commercial success to warrant an Album of the Year nom. Her album topped the charts, and she’s having singles success too. The album’s lead, “Provenza,” peaked at number-25 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the newest single, “TQG” featuring Shakira, debuted at number-seven on the chart. This type of success for an artist singing in Spanish is not very common, which could inspire academy members to honor her record-breaking achievement. It also likely helps that the album has big features like Shakira, since having a more-established Grammy winner on your song can help make you more visible to voters (see J Balvin and Bad Bunny’s “Un Día (One Day)” being helped by Dua Lipa to an eventual nomination in the pop field in 2021).

Another factor in Karol’s favor is acclaim. As of mid-March, outlets like Rolling Stone and The Guardian have praised Karol’s album, earning it an 87 on Metacritic. Granted, the album doesn’t have many reviews counted by that review aggregator, but that doesn’t really differ from Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti. ” As long as the reviews are positive, that’s a good indication of how the media feels about the album. And if the album keeps commercial momentum, it’s also likely that it gets more attention on year-end lists, again like how Bad Bunny’s record did.

But just like with “Un Verano Sin Ti,” a big part of why “Mañana Será Bonito” could be recognized is what it represents. To see such an unashamedly Latin music record achieve crossover recognition is a reminder of how diverse music is, which is certainly something to support going forward. While the Grammys aren’t the be-all and end-all of music, it is their duty to uplift quality music and promote a future for the music industry that’s representative of all genres.

“Un Verano Sin Ti” was a great inclusion, but if the Grammys want to truly show that its nomination was more of a movement than a moment, Karol G is right there for voters to embrace. It’d also be very special for a Latin woman to do so, especially with how neglected they’ve been by the academy, which has managed to nominate popular Latin male artists recently but has not really given the same attention to Spanish-language women. That said, I do have faith the Grammys are expanding their taste; before Bad Bunny, there were noms for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s “Despacito” in Record and Song of the Year, and Rosalía in Best New Artist. So, there’s faith in a possible second all-Spanish album getting recognized for its merits. And it certainly helps that this year’s potential Album of the Year lineup is not looking very crowded thus far.
