Bad Bunny is garnering some major recognition. On Thursday, Telemundo announced the nominees for the 2022 Latin American Music Awards, and the 27-year-old star leads the pack with 10 nods.

Jhay Cortez has the second most with eight nominations, and J Balvin, Karol G, and Rauw Alejandro are tied for third with seven nods each.

The 2022 Latin AMAs nominees are based on key fan interactions with music, including streaming, sales, airplay, and social activity covering the periods of Feb. 6, 2021, through Jan. 29, 2022.

The Favorite Video and Favorite Social Artist nominees were selected by a committee of industry professionals who considered the quality, content, creativity, and fan engagement of the music video, and fan engagement and associated metrics on artist’s social media platforms, for the respective nominations.
