The Puerto Rican duet Calle 13 threw a message to the world with their success in 2011: Latin America is making a significant mark in the world of music.
Calle 13 has created a partnership with UNICEF, MTV Latin America and Tr3s to launch the global campaign "MTV EXIT" which seeks to raise awareness about human rights, exploitation and human trafficking in Latin America and Spanish-speaking communities in the U.S.
Calle 13, a Puerto Rican hip-hop group with Pan-American music, rebellious politics and a raunchy sense of humor, triumphed at the 12th annual Latin Grammy Awards. “Entren Los Que Quieran” is Calle 13’s second album in a row to be named Album of the Year.
The biggest night in Latin music hits Sin City this Thursday--The Latin Grammys at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay.
Prince Royce is still celebrating the success of his first album, with which he has now become the only Latino artist of 2011 in the United States to go triple platinum by selling 300,000 copies.
On the eve of the Latin Grammys, Shakira will receive the Latin Recording Academy's Person of the Year award, underscoring her reputation as a kind of Latina equivalent of U2 frontman Bono in philanthropic do-gooding.
Calle 13, the Latin Grammy favorites who cull multiple nominations for the award with every album they release, have done it again. The duo, which already has 10 Latin Grammy awards under its belt -- is now up for 10 more, a new record.
