Global star Sebastián Yatra (@SebastianYatra) nabs 4 Billboard Latin Music Award nominations this morning, including “Song of the Year” (“Dos Oruguitas”), “Latin Pop Artist of the Year,” “Solo Latin Pop Song of the Year” (“Tacones Rojos”), and “Latin Pop Album of the Year” (Dharma).
The celebration will continue at 8pm ET tonight, when the Colombian singer and songwriter will debut a surprise, and first of its kind Spanish/Arabic collaboration, “Ulayeh” ft. Nouaman Belaiachi (pre-save here), further showcasing the multi-platinum artist’s versatility across music genres. As the visualizer on his 29 Million followed Instagram hints, the track will surely kick start excitement for the upcoming World Cup with the upbeat track.
The new releases arrive off the heels of the debut of the “Dharma+” deluxe album [stream here] and his “Dharma” album which boasts 9.1 Billion combined streams, a #1 peak rank on Spotify’s US & Global album debut and #1 on Billboard’s Latin Streaming & Latin digital song sales charts.

Sebastián Yatra is building pillars for Latin music in the US proving the hitmaker’s strength for making feel-good music as an outlier in an otherwise reggaeton-dominated Latin genre through 5 Latin American Music Award nominations, 4 Premio Lo Nuestro, 4 Premio Tu Musica Urbana and 4 MTV Miaw this year. Sebastián Yatra has also graced back-to-back television appearances including two performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (most recently, debuting the bilingual edition of his smash “Tacones Rojos,” as well as his RIAA-certified Gold “Dos Oruguitas”), and initially debuting the original “Taconoes Rojos” on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. The chart-topping talent stunned the audience at the 94th annual Academy Awards by performing the Oscar-nominated single “Dos Oruguitas” from The Walt Disney animated film “ENCANTO”, following appearances on Good Morning America and CBS Mornings.
