Best Latin Artist of 2016: Fan Choice Awards
It’s that time of year again: the time for you, the PopCrush readers, to determine the very best pop releases that 2016 had to offer — from music, to movies, to television, and everything in between.
2016 was a banner year for Latin pop: from Shakira and Maluma‘s immediate No. 1 hit “Chantaje” to Enrique Iglesias‘ massive “Duele El Corazon” (with an assist from Tinashe later on!) to Becky G‘s foray into Spanish-language kiss-offs like “Sola” and “Mangu,” the charts stateside became a little bit more bilingual. (Oh, and don’t forget Britney going all “No Seas Cortés” on Glory.)
And that’s not all: Ricky Martin also got into party mode with Maluma (“Vente Pa’ Ca”), J Balvin brought the Energia with Pharrell, while long-reigning reina Thalia came surging in at No. 1 with her thirteenth studio album, Latina. But between all the Latin chart-toppers, who ultimately reigned supreme this year? Place your vote below. We’ll reveal the winner right here on December 21.
