Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist

The Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist is an honor presented annually at the Latin Grammy Awards, a ceremony that recognizes excellence and creates a wider awareness of cultural diversity and contributions of Latin recording artists, nationally and internationally.[1] The award is given to solo artists or groups that first establish an identity to the public as a performer and release a Spanish or Portuguese language recording during the period of eligibility.[2] In 2012, the Academy announced the category (in addition to Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year) would include ten nominees to reflect changes within the music industry.[3]

The award for Best New Artist was first presented to the Cuban performer Ibrahim Ferrer in 2000. Benefiting from the release of the documentary Buena Vista Social Club, which launched him to stardom, Ferrer received the award at age seventy-three after being a performer for sixty years.[4][5] The next three award recipients were Juanes, Jorge Moreno, and David Bisbal. In 2004, Brazilian singer Maria Rita became the first female winner.[6] Spanish singer-songwriter Bebe announced her retirement one year after receiving the 2005 award; however, she returned to the music business five years later with the release of her second album, Y.[7] The bands Calle 13 and Jesse & Joy won the next two awards, followed by singers Kany García, Alexander Acha, Alex Cuba, Sie7e, Mexican DJ's 3Ball MTY, Gaby Moreno, Mariana Vega, Manuel Medrano, Vicente García, and Karol G.

The award has been presented to seven male and six female artists; 3Ball MTY, Calle 13, Jesse & Joy and Monsieur Periné are the only ensembles to earn the award.[8][9] Since its inception, the award has been presented to musicians or groups originating from Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Spain.
