During Rosalía and J Balvin’s acceptance speech, after winning the “Best Latin” moonman for their song “Con Altura,” the Latinx artists expressed how proud they are of their roots and how grateful they were to be able to perform their music in Spanish, reminding the Hispanic community that they're a part of America’s identity.
“I'm super proud of being Latino right now,” J Balvin said, while Rosalia thanked to audience for accepting her language “I come from Barcelona. I'm so happy to be here representing where I come from and representing my culture. ... Thank you for allowing me to perform tonight singing in Spanish."
