There are also five candidacies accumulated by the Puerto Rican Bad Bunny, the Argentine María Becerra, the Colombian Feid and the Mexican Natalia Lafourcade, as revealed this Tuesday by the Latin Recording Academy in a broadcast from Seville (Spain).

Completing that list are "Mientras me curo del cora" by Karol G, "De todas las flores" by Natalia Lafourcade, "Ojos marrones" by Lasso, "La fórmula" by Maluma and Marc Anthony, "Despechá" by Rosalía and "Correcaminos" by Alejandro Sanz with Danny Ocean.
As album of the year, "La cu4rta Hoja" by Pablo Alborán could be chosen; "A ciegas", by Paula Arenas; "De adentro pa fuera", by Camilo; "Décimo cuarto", by Andrés Cepeda; "Vida cotidiana", by Juanes; "Mañana será bonito", by Karol G; "De todas las flores", by Natalia Lafourcade; "Play", by Ricky Martín; "Eadda9223", by Fito Páez; and "Escalona nunca se había grabado así", by Carlos Vives.
The Spaniard Alejandro Sanz competes this year as a candidate in two categories, the same as his compatriot the rapper Quevedo and the band Arde Bogotá, ahead of other figures from his country such as Rosalía, Manuel Carrasco or Vanesa Martín, with a candidacy.
"This group of creators reflects the musical excellence and richness of Latin music and we hope to celebrate them during Latin Grammy Week in Seville, which will be a truly historic moment for our organization," said Manuel Abud, CEO of the Latin Academy of the Recording, during the presentation of the nominees.
