Rosalia and J Balvin Win MTV Video Music Award in Latin Category

NEW YORK – Rosalia and J Balvin took out on Monday the Latin category at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, New Jersey, for their collaboration on “Con Altura.”

Dressed in a tight black suit with crystals of the same color, the Spanish singer said she’s “incredibly honored” to be at the gala, coming from her hometown Barcelona.

“Thank you for letting me perform tonight and sing in Spanish,” said the visibly excited singer.

In addition to “Con Altura” – a collaboration of Rosalia, the Colombian singer J. Balvin and Spanish producer El Guincho – songs by artists such as Bad Bunny, Karol G and Maluma were also nominated for Best Latin Music Video.

J Balvin had two nominations in this category, the other one being “I Can’t Get Enough,” a joint performance with Benny Blanco, Tainy and Selena Gomez.

He said he was “super proud to be Latino right now,” a clear political message, and dedicated his speech to asking for help to fight the fires sweeping the Amazon.

“We need help for the Amazon because it is burning,” he said when he accepted his award.

Rosalia was nominated in three other categories: Best New Artist, Summer Song and Best Collaboration – the last two categories also thanks to “Con Altura.”

The song has become one of the most listened-to of the summer and, in addition to appearing in the top of the charts, it also features on the personal playlist of former US president Barack Obama.

“Con Altura” is the most listened to by the Catalan artist on Spotify, where it has accumulated more than 230 million listeners, with more than 760 million views on YouTube.

J Balvin is also nominated in the Best Dance Video category, thanks to “Say My Name” with David Guetta and Bebe Rexha.
