The album Un canto por México Vol. 1 by the singer Natalia Lafourcade won the best album of the year at the most recent Grammy Awards, held on the night of November 19, 2020.
Natalia Lafourcade’s album was nominated in a category that this year featured a large number of genres. They accompanied him in the shortlist Bad Bunny with his successful YHLQMDLG; J Balvin with Colors; Bad Bunny and J Balvin with Oasis; For the first time from Camilo; Table for two by Kany García; Air (Day Version) by Jesse & Joy; Ricky Martin break; The conquest of space by Fito Paez; and Cumbiana by Carlos Vives.
This is the first time Natalia Lafourcade has won a Latin Grammy in a major category. Previously, he had received four other nominations that were not awarded, for his work in other productions such as HuHuHu, his two editions of Muses and the nomination of Album of the Year for Hasta la Raíz.
Despite the victory, the Mexican could not be present in the edition that was carried out remotely and jointly between several countries that joined transmissions for some presentations. The main venue, however, was in the city of Miami and the ceremony was conducted by Yalitza Aparicio, Ana Brenda Contreras and Victor Manuelle.
Among the outstanding presentations of the night, there was that of Bad Bunny who carried out a double show of scenes and changes of outfit, from a bay in his native San Juan in Puerto Rico. He performed his hits “And if I see your mom” and “Bichiyal”, aboard a Bugatti. The Puerto Rican also won the Best Reggaetón Performance award for his song “Yo perreo sola”.
Also Alejandro Fernández, Christian Nodal and Caliber 50 joined for a presentation that took place from the city of Guadalajara and in which they celebrated regional Mexican music. On the other hand, Guaynaa and Sebastián Yatra stepped on the stage with “An Ideal Girl”, as did other interpreters such as Camilo, Kany García, Anuel AA, or Pitbull, to name a few.
