Spanish pop singer Rosalía capped her breakthrough year by winning the top honour at the 2019 Latin Grammy awards.
Her album El Mal Querer, which fuses flamenco music with R&B and trap, was named album of the year as well as best contemporary pop vocal album. “Winning a Grammy is the best thing that can ever happen,” she said. “We did this album sitting on the floor, with two computers, a keyboard and a microphone. I swear to God. And then we worked on it for a year and a half. That was it.” Her reggaeton collaboration with J Balvin, Con Altura, won best urban song.
Another top prize, record of the year, went to Camila Cabello and Alejandro Sanz for Mi Persona Favorita, which also won pop song of the year. Song of the year went to Pedro Capó for Calma, performed in a duet with Alicia Keys at the ceremony in Las Vegas. The hit remix, which has had nearly 1.7bn views on YouTube and features Puerto Rican vocalist Farruko, won best urban fusion/performance.
Person of the year was awarded to veteran Colombian pop-rock star Juanes, who had three nominations across the record and song categories. His award was presented to him by Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, who described Juanes as “mi amigo, mi parcero” – “my friend, my bro”.
