The Latin Recording Academy has announced the winners of this year’s Latin Grammys, with María José Durán and Yandel leading the list of winners.

Durán nabbed the Latin GRAMMY Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media for her collaboration with rapper Tech N9ne “Hola Los Treblos” (From Hola Los Treblos), a song that earned top honors at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.

Puerto Rican rapper Yandel won his first Latin Grammy this year for Best Male Vocal Album for Latinoamérica. The artist broke through in the pop world in the mid-2000s, releasing his first solo album in 2009 before linking up with Puerto Rican singer Don Omar a year later. The pair’s debut song “Amar Mi Vicio” (From My Vicio) made its way to number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

The 2017 recipients of this year’s Latin GRAMMY Awards had already been announced before Tuesday’s broadcast.

Hosted by independent radio DJ J Balvin and internationally known Cuban-American reggaeton artist J Balvin, the award show will be aired from the Coliseo de Puerto Rico at 9 p.m. ET/PT and stream live on the Latin Grammy Awards website.
