The awards given by the Univision network placed Karol G and Camilo at the top of the nominations against the most popular artists of reggaeton.
This Tuesday the nominations for Premios Juventud 2021 were revealed, in which Camilo and Karol G dethroned the great reggaetoneros by becoming the artists with the most nominations for this edition. After a year of cancellations and postponements, this year's ceremony will be held with a live audience and will bring new categories that open the way for new artists, especially for regional Mexican music.
The Univision network revealed that Camilo and Karol G tied for first place out of the 160 artists selected to compete for the Premios Juventud, with 12 nominations each, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year.
J Balvin and Maluma follow with 11, Daddy Yankee, Los Dos Carnales and Myke Towers with nine nominations and Christian Nodal and Natti Natasha with eight. Although the nominations are predominantly male, Karol G and Natti Natasha are present in the top nominations. Behind these artists were Bad Bunny and Rosalía with six nominations.
"We are excited to invite audiences back to our show that will feature the hottest stars in Latin music and emerging artists, as well as recognize admirable individuals who are driving change in the community and the world," said Ignacio Meyer, Senior Vice President of Music, Non-Fiction and Development at Univision.
