El Premio ASCAP 2020

July 7, 2020

The first ever virtual El Premio ASCAP took over our @ASCAP and @ASCAPLatino socials from July 7-9. We pulled back the curtain on our annual awards show, inviting friends and fans to join in as we celebrated the songwriters and publishers of the biggest ASCAP music en español of 2019. 

Hosted by Greeicy and Mike Bahía, El Premio ASCAP 2020 rolled out a procession of exclusive acceptance speeches, unboxing videos, photos and performances from Latin music royalty Marc Anthony, Descemer Bueno, Pedro Capó, Desmond Child, Jhay Cortez, Darrell, Natalia Lafourcade, Lunay, Silverio Lozada, Rudy Pérez, Julio Ramírez (of Reik), Alexander Rangel, Mauricio Rengifo, Piso 21, Carlos Vives and Sebastián Yatra, among other winners and special guests. 

The big winners this year: Latin trap superstar Bad Bunny earned his first ASCAP Songwriter of the Year honor; bachata hero Romeo Santos captured Songwriter/Artist of the Year; the unstoppable “Con Calma” by Daddy Yankee ft. Snow was named Song of the Year; Universal Music Publishing Group won Publisher of the Year, and the Independent Publisher of the Year award went to Kobalt.

While most of our winners ditched the “creative black tie” dress code of our in-person events in favor of a more relaxed summer quarantine chic, the supportive, fun-loving energy of El Premio ASCAP was still in full effect. As ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams said in his introductory video, “Latin music – your music – is some of the most popular music in the world. That’s because its rhythms, passion, honesty and deep love for both tradition and transcending borders speaks to all of us – no matter what language we speak.”
