Spotify has revealed that their inaugural Spotify Awards ceremony will take place in Mexico City on March 5th.
Playing host to some of the world’s top talent, the event will feature 13-time nominee Bad Bunny, running for song of the Summer with two of his tracks, “Callaita” and “La Cancion.” Furthermore, he’s followed by Banda MS, J Balvin, and Daddy Yankee who are each tied with 10 mentions.
For the first time ever, awards will be conferred based 100% on user-generated data from the platform’s users in Mexico. To clarify, there is no subjective panel of experts – just listeners voting with their ears. The Spotify Awards hold more than 50 categories including artist of the year, most-streamed female artist, emerging artist, and most-added to playlist artist, and most-streamed Mexican artist globally
The inaugural event will be broadcast live from Mexico on March 5th via Telemundo and Universo in the United States. See the main categories and full finalists list here.
