Renowned Colombian artist J Balvin continues to make history in the music industry and around the world with his latest Guinness World Records title most Latin Grammy nominations in a single year.
Earlier in September when the nominees were revealed for the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY® Awards, J Balvin led the list with 13 nominations for his most recent album "Colores y Oasis," a collaborative production with Bad Bunny – making history.
This record was previously held by the Puerto Rican duo Calle 13 (step brothers "Residente" and "Visitante") with a total of 10, for the 12th annual ceremony in 2011.
J Balvin is no stranger to record breaking, and in fact held another record in years past for longest stay at No.1 on the US Hot Latin Songs chart by a single artist in March 2016. His hit song 'Ginza' graced the top of the US Hot Latin Songs chart list for an impressive 22 weeks.
A creative and a visionary, the Spanish-speaking singer continues to set the reggaeton genre on the map and captivate millions of people with his style, authenticity and fantastic songs.
Over the years, Balvin has become an ambassador of Latin culture and music by leading the second generation of urban music exponents.
His discipline, positive mentality, and daily work have allowed him to go beyond his dreams and become one of the music industry's most established collaborators, participating in world-class festivals and making it to the top of TIME Magazine's list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2020.
