Rosalía, Jorge Drexler, Bad Bunny win big at Latin Grammys

Rosalia

The 2022 Latin Grammy Awards, which many expected to be a trophy-filled capper to Bad Bunny’s remarkable year, delivered a diverse array of winners, including Spanish singer Rosalía taking home album of the year for “Motomami.” 

Uruguayan musician Jorge Drexler led the night with six wins, including record and song of the year for “Tocarte” with Mexican rapper C. Tangana, followed by Bad Bunny with five. But the coolest win was undoubtedly a tie in the Best New Artist category featuring 25-year-old Mexican singer Silvana Estrada and 95-year-old Cuban performer Angela Alvarez.

Alvarez told the Washington Post that her father didn’t share her dream of becoming a professional musician, saying, “You sing for the family, but not for the world.” Her grandson, composer Carlos José Alvarez, urged her to change that and helped her record a self-titled album released last year that landed her on stage with a Grammy in her hand.
