The list of nominees for the 23rd Annual Latin Grammy Awards was announced today. However, no one expected that The Latin Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences would put Majo Aguilar and Angela Aguilar in the running for Best Ranchera/Mariachi Album.
According to information revealed, ‘Mi Herencia, Mi Sangre’ by Majo Aguilar and ‘Mexicana Enamorada’ will compete against ’40 Aniversario Embajadores del Mariachi Sol de México de José Hernández’ by Mariachi Sol de México de José Hernández, ‘EP #1 Forajido’ by Christian Nodal and ‘Qué Ganas De Verte (Deluxe)’ by Marco Antonio Solis.
It should be noted that this is not the first time Pepe Aguilar’s daughter has been recognized for her talent at this awards ceremony. In 2018, she was nominated in the Best New Artist and Best Ranchera/Mariachi Music Album categories for the album ‘Primero soy Mexicana, both of which she lost to Karol G and Luis Miguel, respectively.
Ángela Aguilar and Majo Aguilar, two musical promises
Mexicana Enamorada’ is the name of Ángela Aguilar’s third studio album and second solo album, which was released on September 24, 2021, with the participation of her father, singer Pepe Aguilar, in the production. It features ten songs, two of them as collaborations, with Christian Nodal and Jesse & Joy.
‘Mi Herencia, Mi Sangre’ is Majo Aguilar’s first studio album and with which she made her professional debut in the music world with Universal Music Group. It is worth mentioning that this album includes the single ‘No Voy A Llorar,’ a mariachi version of the vallenato that reached first place in Billboard’s Mexico Popular Airplay.
