Anuel AA and Bad Bunny were the big winners at the 2019 Premios Juventud taking home three awards each. The Puerto Rican trap singers were followed by Cardi B, Daddy Yankee, Karol G and Maluma who won two each.
The 16th edition of Premios Juventud celebrated music, pop culture, digital media, fashion, TV and social media during a four-hour live show that included performances supporting the new generation of urban music such as Guaynaa, Lunay and Sech.
The highlight of the night definitely was Daddy Yankee’s speech, dedicated to his homeland’s crisis.
“I claim the governor to hand over his position in a peaceful, reasonable and diplomatic manner,” he said. “Even though I travel the world, my final destination is always my home, Puerto Rico.”
Maluma and Jesse & Joy were the first artists to receive the “Agente de Cambio,” honoring their humanitarian work. Two young Latinos, Alondra Toledo and Carlos Osuna, were also honored with the trophy for their leadership and positive contributions to the community.
