Bachata is the genre ruling the 2013 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards, to be held at the American Airlines Arena on February 21 in Miami. Romeo Santos and Prince Royce both topped the list of nominees with seven nominations each.
The former Aventura band member is up for “Best Tropical Male Artist of the Year,” “Tropical Song of the Year” for “La Diabla” and “Mi Santa,” and “Best Tropical Album of the Year” for his hit solo debut, Formula Vol. 1. Prince Royce will battle it out against Romeo in the same categories, which may determine who really holds the title as the king of bachata.
Music fans have even more to look forward to. Don Omar and the legendary Mexican rock band Maná are also nominated for six awards, including “Artist of the Year.” The reggaetonero is also up for “Collaboration of the Year” thanks to the extreme successful of his single featuring Natti Natasha, “Dutty Love.”
