Billboard compiled songs and artists that didn’t make the cut, much to the dismay of many fans.
Becky G and Karol G’s “Mamii” was nominated for Best Urban Song, but its absence from the Song of the Year list was duly noted. The commercial success of the song was undeniable, as it climbed the Billboard Hot 100 and Global 200 charts.
Another snub noted by Billboard was Carla Morrison’s “El Renacimiento,” which was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album, but was not included in the Album of the Year category.
