BARRIO – Bad Bunny is the most-nominated artist for the 2022 American Music Awards, earning eight nominations, among them his first-ever for artist of the year. It was pointed out that Bad Bunny would tie Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston for the most awards in a single year if he ended up winning in all his nominated categories.
Beyoncé, Drake and Taylor Swift each earned six nominations, while Adele, Harry Styles and The Weeknd came in with five a piece.
We should add that Bad Bunny’s album continues to hold Billboard’s No. 1 album position. How many more records will el ‘Conejo Malo’ break??? Seems like there is no slowing down.
“Un Verano Sin Ti,” logs its 13th time as the top album, with the equivalent of 84,000 sales in the United States, including 116 million streams. Since it came out 22 weeks ago, Bad Bunny’s album, an international blockbuster, has racked up 3.6 billion streams in the United States alone and bounced in and out of Billboard’s top spot, never dipping lower than No. 2.
“Un Verano” now ties Drake’s “Views” (2016) and Disney’s “Frozen” soundtrack (2013) for the longest stays in the chart’s No. 1 spot. The only one left to beat is Adele, who’s “21” maintained 24 weeks at No. 1 back in 2011 and 2012.
