The Black Eyed Peas showed their fierce cross-genre power yet again by scoring big at the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Awards.
The group walked into the night with eight nominations, which turned into three wins. They collected trophies for Crossover Artist of the Year, Latin Pop Song of the Year (“Mamacitá” featuring Ozuna and J. Rey Soul), and Sales Song of the Year for “RITMO” featuring J Balvin.
“Thank you for listening to our music throughout the years,” the group captioned a video on their Instagram page, translating the acceptance speech from group member Tabooo Nawasha. “Thanks to all the artists we worked with on our album… GRACIAS Latino community.”
Their success at this year’s awards surrounds their 2020 album, Translation, which consisted of four #1 songs, including “RITMO,” which held steady at the top of Billbord’s Hot Latin Chart for 24 weeks in a row.
The Black Eyed Peas hope to continue pushing boundaries and see their success continue with their new release “HIT IT,” featuring Saweetie and Lele Pons.
