The inaugural Billboard Mujeres Latinas en la Música (Billboard Latin Women in Music) took place over the weekend in Miami, and celebrated Latin female artists, executives, and creatives who are proactively working for positive change, inclusion, and gender parity in the music industry—a first of its kind for Latin music.

The two-hour music special was co-hosted by Ivy Queen and Jacqueline Bracamontes and aired exclusively on Telemundo and Peacock, honoring seven incredible singer-songwriters in the industry. 

Shakira received the first-ever Woman of the Year award; Ana Gabriel received the Living Legend Award; Emilia received the Rising Star Award; Evaluna received the Tradition and Future Award; Goyo received the Agent of Change Award; Thalia received the Global Powerhouse Award; and Maria Becerra received the Visionary Award. The honorees were joined by a star-studded wave of presenters such as Elena Rose, Greeicy, Lele Pons, Guaynaa, Ha*Ash, and Maluma. 

Most of the honorees also took center stage for eclectic performances, such as Thalia who opened the night with a medley of hits, Ana Gabriel whose power vocals had the entire venue singing “Simplemente Amigos,” and Emilia, who debuted her new Brazilian dance funk “No_se_ve.mp3” alongside “Ludmilla,” to name a few. 

With the launch of Billboard Mujeres Latinas en la Música, Billboard and Telemundo aim to further elevate Latin music globally and celebrate the women who have made a concrete impact on Latin music through their artistic achievements, or through tangible, noteworthy actions that have brought measurable recognition and opportunity to women, affecting positive change to the industry as a whole.
