Rosalía's album, Motomami, was chosen almost unanimously by The New York Times' three jurors, Jon Pareles, Jon Caramanica and Lindsay Zoladz as one of the best albums of 2022.
Pareles and Caramanica picked the Spaniard's album as their second favorite album of 2022, while Zoladz placed it third.
"Throughout the album she does just that: playfully, impulsively and very intentionally mix musical styles and verbal tactics," Pareles wrote in her description.
For her part, Zoladz, mentioned that on Motomami, Rosalía "mixes countless genres and cultural influences to create her own sound world."
In 2022, "more was more" mentioned one of the jurors, emphasizing how each of the artists sought to transmit their essence through the musical works they presented.
Other albums by Hispanic artists that were highlighted by the jury are Un verano sin ti by Bad Bunny, whom Caramaniaca defined as "the pop star that defined 2022."
"Bad Bunny completely sheds expectations. His fourth solo album is a ray of sunshine, taking reggaeton and Latin trap as starting points and embracing styles from all over the Caribbean, from mambo to dembow," noted the jury.
Rauw Alejandro's album Saturno also received a special mention in the Pareles list.
