Ozuna Takes Home Record 11 Billboard Latin Music Awards
Last night, on April 25, some of the biggest names in Latin music gathered in Las Vegas for the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards. Rising reggaeton star Ozuna made his mark with the most-ever wins in the show's history, taking home 11 awards, including Artist of the Year and Hot Latin Artist of the Year, Male.
Latin GRAMMY winner Nicky Jam and Latin GRAMMY/GRAMMY nominee Bad Bunny followed fellow Puerto Rican Ozuna with five and four wins, respectively. The trio collabed in 2018 on the popular "Te Boté (Remix)," which brought them on Nio García, Darell and Casper Mágico's track. The song earned the crew three wins, including Hot Latin Song of the Year
The evening was filled with killer outfits and upbeat performances. The night's big winner had some surprises during his two song medley, bringing out Latin GRAMMY-winning reggaeton heavy-hitters J Balvin and Daddy Yankee, along with fellow rising star Anuel AA to drop a few bars during "Baila Baila Baila." The trio are the featured artists on the brand-new remix of the song, along with Latin GRAMMY winner Farruko.
Balvin, along with fellow Latin GRAMMY winner Rosalía and El Guincho (who co-produced Rosalía's epic El Mal Querer with her) also took the stage to perform their 2019 classic-reggaeton-inspired collab, "Con Altura." Seeing as Balvin has been dropping the hot tracks like no one's business lately, he followed with "Contra La Pared, joined on stage by collaborator and GRAMMY winner Sean Paul.
