‘A summer without you’, Bad Bunny

“The Grammy Awards disregard for non-English speaking artists is nothing new, so A summer without you becoming the first project in Spanish nominated for Album of the Year? Very exciting, shocking and fully guaranteed. This is perhaps the most universally enjoyed album of 2022, with bad bunny expanding his discography to explore bachata, salsa, bossa nova and even indie pop. He effortlessly introduced emerging artists, while remaining true to his reggaeton roots. Even kissing her at the VMAs had the internet in a frenzy.” – julia dzurillay
