Rauw Alejandro has been hard at work. The Puerto Rican singer-songwriter exists now at a particularly crucial moment, right between the release of his debut album, Afrodisíaco, that dropped on November 13, and finding out if he will take home Best New Artist at this year's Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday. Getting to become a leading voice in the R&B wave taking over reggaetón music, heard on songs like Ir Sais’s “Dreamgirl” remix and Lyanno’s “En Tu Cuerpo” remix, didn't happen overnight, though.
“It's been two years of hard work,” Alejandro tells MTV News. “Afrodisíaco is my first album, but I've been releasing singles every month, like non-stop. We got a lot of music out right now. I think [I was nominated] because of that, working non-stop."
