Puerto Rican Singer Kany García Is The Most Nominated Female Artist For Latin Grammys

The Latin Grammys are in two weeks and everyone is getting excited to see who takes home the prizes. One artist that has a good chance to take home several prizes is Kany García. The Puerto Rican singer has been nominated in five categories in the Latin Grammys.

Kany García’s latest album racked up several Latin Grammy nominations.

“Mesa Para Dos” is García’s seventh studio album and is already bringing her more acclaim than she expected. The album was a surprise to everyone, even García. The singer felt a need to stay connected to people while in quarantine and thus “Mesa Para Dos” was born with “zero planning.”

“It was kind of a beautiful madness and I told myself if I don’t release these now that we’re living this reality, with these feelings, I don’t know if when we reopen in November or October I will be able to release this album, in this way,” García told NBC News about the album. “It made sense to me today.”

It’s safe to say that “Mesa Para Dos” is a success.

There is a need for new entertainment as quarantining drags on to consume almost all of 2020. García’s album is feeding that need for new entertainment as production in TV, movies, and music was suspended as we tried to get a handle on the pandemic. The album was a cathartic experience for García, according to her interview with NBC News.

Yet, despite the quarantine, García has managed to produce gold.

Garcías has been nominated in five categories in the 2020 Latin Grammys. García was nominated for Record of the Year with “Lo que en ti veo,” Album of the Year with “Mesa Para Dos,” Song of the Year with “Le que en ti veo,” Best Tropical Song with “Búscame,” and Best Singer-Songwriter Album with “Mesa Para Dos.”

García would not have been able to produce this album under normal circumstances.

García wrote all of her 10-song album. Each song is a collaboration with another artist including names like Camilo, Reik, and Carlos Vives. García told NBC News that the pandemic created the perfect environment to create this album.

“We were all at home, and all of our calendars were suddenly free, and I used that time to make duets with whoever I wanted, and they all said yes,” García told NBC News.

Congratulations, Kany!

Best of luck to all of the artists nominated. You can watch the Latin Grammys Nov. 19. Who are you rooting for?
