BMI writers lead the pack with the majority of nominations for Billboard’s 2013 Latin Music Awards. The awards are given for the most popular albums, songs, and performers in Latin music, as determined by sales, radio airplay, and streaming and social data that makes up Billboard’s weekly charts during a one-year period.  BMI songwriters Don Omar with an astounding 18 nods, Wisin & Yandel with 10, and the late Jenni Rivera with 11 nominations are all in the lead for multiple awards.

The data for the awards is compiled from information by Nielsen SoundScan, Nielsen BDS and Next Big Sound.  The Billboard Latin Music Awards will be produced and televised LIVE on Telemundo on April 25, 2013.

Prior to this event, the 20th annual BMI Latin Awards Awards are slated for March 21 at the Bellagio Las Vegas at which Billboard Nominee Banda el Recodo will receive the BMI Icon Award.
