Ozuna Leads 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards Finalists: Complete List of Nominees

LAS VEGAS (By Billboard) – On the strength of two top-selling albums and a slew of hits, Puerto Rican star Ozuna leads the list of finalists for the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards, with 23 nods in 15 categories — a record number in the history of the awards.

Ozuna’s finalist slots include the all-important artist of the year category, as well as Hot Latin Songs artist of the year, male, and songwriter of the year. He also competes against himself in the Hot Latin Song and Hot Latin song Vocal Event categories, where he’s a featured artist in both “Te Boté” and “Taki Taki.” It’s also Ozuna vs. Ozuna in the Top Latin Album of the year category, with 2018’s Aura competing against 2017 Odisea.

Ozuna’s finalist tally reflects the enormous, barrier-breaking popularity Latin urban music is currently enjoying on the Billboard charts and beyond.

And it doesn’t stop with him. Ozuna is followed in number of finalist slots by J Balvin and Nicky jam, with 13 each, Bad Bunny with 12 and Daddy Yankee with eight.  Balvin’s and Nicky Jam’s nods include Hot Latin Song of the year and Hot Latin song vocal event for their hit duet “X,” which had six nods, including Hot Latin Song of the year and Streaming Song of the year.

Yankee, Bad Bunny and Balvin are also up for Artist of the year, with Ozuna, underscoring urban music’s dominance across platforms and genres. Finalists for Songwriter of the year, for example, are Daddy Yankee, Balvin, Ozuna and Juan Rivera Vazquez, aka Gaby Music.

This year’s awards, which honor the top performers in Latin music, reveal a diverse group of artists vying for a distinction among 34 different categories that include pop, tropical, regional Mexican and Latin Rhythm (urban) music.

Other leading finalists include Casper Magico, Darell and Nio Garcia with six awards each on the strength of mega hit “Te Boté.” Also up for six awards is Romeo Santos. Banda MS and DJ Snake vie for five awards; and Anuel AA, Cardi B, Raymix, Reik, and Shakira are up for four awards each. Finalists for the Crossover Artist of the Year award are Cardi B, Drake, Demi Lovato and DJ Snake, who all had major collaborations with Latin artists in 2018.

Beyond the sheer numbers, this year’s list of finalists also reflects the rise of female artists on the chart. For the first time in at least six years, women are vying for the coveted Best New Artist win, with Karol and Natti Natasha competing for the honor. In a twist, Karol G is also up against her boyfriend, Anuel AA, in that category.
