These Premios Lo Nuestro Winners Used Their Time To Put Trump On The Spot

Some of the biggest names in Latino music gathered yesterday for the 29th Premios Lo Nuestro awards. Of course, there were several great performances and glitzy outfits on the red carpet, but the real juicy part was the politically-charged, pro-Latino tone of the show. Several stars used their moment on camera to rally Latinos and let President Trump know exactly what they think of his administration.

Prince Royce spoke up for the immigrants in the crowd.


“I want to dedicate this prize to all immigrants,” said Prince Royce, who won Tropical Artist of the Year. “We are all immigrants, truly. To my family, my mom and my dad who are right over there.”

Romeo Santos spoke from his heart as he rallied Latinos with love.


“The only thing I would say to everyone is, please, in this world we need more love, more peace, less jealousy, less war,” Santos, who won the Excellence Award, told the crowd. “And we all deserve respect and equality for Latinos. That’s very important.”

You knew Jorge Ramos was going to come with some fire.


“I am an immigrant, like a lot of you. I am a proud Latino immigrant in the United States,” Ramos told the crowd. “You all know exactly what is happening here in the United States. There are a lot of people who do not want us here and they want to build a wall to separate us. But, you know what? This is also our country. Let me repeat that. Our country. Not theirs. It’s our country. And we are not going to leave. There are close to 70 million Latinos in the United States and, thanks to us, the United States eats, grows, and, as you’ve seen today, sings and dances. Therefore, when they attack us, we already know what we are going to do. We are not going to sit down. We will not be quiet. And we are not going to go. That’s what we are going to do.”

And people were feeling Ramos’ speech.

J Balvin lent his voice to the growing political charge at Premios Lo Nuestro.


“I don’t think this is a bad time,” Balvin, winner of Male Artist of the Year, told the crowd. “I think it’s very a good time for Latinos to unite and show the world that we are really cool, that we are a beautiful generation and that we have strength.”

Carlos Vives directed his message to President Trump and he did not mince words.


“Mr. President, you want a greater America. A greater America is a united America,” said Vives, whose song “La Bicicleta” featuring Shakira won both Video of the Year and Tropical Song of the Year. “Mr. President, you have an historic opportunity. Unite us!”

Like most live shows, there were some technical issues — some people joked that Trump was trying to silence his critics — but the show went on.

Romeo Santos Streaming Historic MetLife Stadium Concert Next Month

For those who missed Romeo Santos’s historic MetLife Stadium concert in 2019, the king of bachata is going to release the show to streaming next month. The former Aventura frontman will also release a documentary on his meteoric rise.

Romeo Santos broke many records for his MetLife Stadium concert in 2019.

Starting with the announcement of his MetLife Stadium concert, Santos broke record after record. First, he became the first Latin artist to headline the massive New Jersey Stadium. After tickets went on sale, Santos became the first Latin artist to sell out the venue.  When the concert kicked off on Sept. 21, he then broke the record for the highest-grossing show in the stadium’s history. Before Romeo, the top-grossing record belonged to the Irish band U2.

Aventura and Cardi B joined Romeo Santos during that show.

Santos’ MetLife Stadium concert was not only historic for the records. The concert was also major for his reunion with Aventura. The guys came back together to perform “Inmortal” live from Santos’ Utopía album. That night Cardi B also joined Aventura to perform the band’s classic “Obsesión.”

Fans can see the MetLife Stadium show and a Romeo Santos documentary next month.

Santos is teaming up with Sony Music Latin, Endeavor Streaming, and iNDemand to release Romeo Santos: Utopía Live from MetLife Stadium on June 25. On the same night, Santos will also release his documentary Romeo Santos: The King of Bachata. Fans can buy their tickets to both pay-per-view events on his official website.

“These films have been such a special project for me and I’m honored and eager to show it to the world and pull back the curtain on the history of bachata,” Santos said in a statement. “For the film to showcase my upbringing and build up to my performance at MetLife Stadium, it gives me the opportunity to relieve one of the most incredible nights of my life while also bringing it inside the homes of my fans across the world.” 

Guests appearing in the films include Daddy Yankee, Emilio Estefan, Marc Anthony, Tommy Mottola, and Thalía. It’s because of that iconic MetLife Stadium show that Santos is nominated for Latin Touring Artist of the Decade at this year’s Pollstar Awards.

Natti Natasha Reveals Her Baby’s Name During Mother’s Day Concert

Natti Natasha continues to let her fans in on her pregnancy journey. During her Mother’s Day live-stream concert, the Dominican reggaetonera announced the name she has for her baby on the way.

In honor of Mother’s Day, Natti Natasha hosted a live-stream concert.

The mother-to-be hosted a special live-stream concert on Facebook Live last night. Natasha performed her biggest hits as the set around her changing seasons. In the fall setting, she sang her empowering ballad “La Mejor Versión de Mi” and “Antes Que Salga El Sol” sans Prince Royce.

In the summer setting, Natasha performed “Oh Daddy,” her tropical take on Chicano singer Ritchie Valens’ “Donna,” and her breakthrough hit “Dutty Love.” During the fall set-up, Natti sang “No Me Acuerdo” sans Thalía and a version of “Sin Pijama” without Becky G.

Natti Natasha also revealed her baby girl’s name while premiering a new song.

Natasha also premiered a new song live. She performed the song “Princesa” as a tribute to her daughter, Vida Isabelle. The touching performance was part of the set’s winter season. This will be her first child with Pina Records owner Raphy Pina.

Fellow Dominicano Romeo Santos wrote “Princessa” for Natti.

Aventura’s Romeo Santos wrote “Princesa” for Natasha. In his own post, he expressed his appreciation to all the mothers, including Natti.

“Thank you to Natti Natasha for singing a song that was born to me solely for her voice,” Santos wrote on Twitter. “You will be a spectacular mother and I already baptized the girl as ‘La Bebe Bachatera.'”

If Natti’s baby decides to go in show biz later on, mom will be behind her.

While promoting her new single “Ram Pam Pam” with Becky G last month, Natasha talked with mitú about her excitement over her pregnancy. If her baby wants to an artist in the future, Natti has no problem with that.

“I would let her,” Natasha said. “She can do whatever she wants. I did it anyways even if my parents didn’t want me to do it at the moment because they didn’t understand. I thank God I went through everything I went through so I could be there for her.”
