Artist, Composer and producer CASADIEGO was nominated today for a Latin GRAMMY in the category of Best Tropical Fusion Album for his album, Obsesionate during the live press conference at the Avalon Hollywood in Hollywood, California. This is the first nomination for CASADIEGO for a Latin GRAMMY who will be competing against his fellow citizen, Carlos Vives.
Natalie Cole, Aida Cuevas, Leslie Grace, Gaby Moreno, Ricky Muñoz, Draco Rosa and Julieta Venegas are part of the cast that unveiled the 2013 Latin Grammy Nominees. Also present at the conference was Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President/ CEO of The Latin Recording Academy and the co-host of the tv show, Mira Quien Baila, Chiqui Delgado along with members of the music industry.
Obsesionate is CASADIEGO’s first solo album which includes 12 innovative songs that sail jauntily between contemporary sounds like reggaeaton, bachata, pop sounds with touches of R&B inclining toward hip-hop, and decidedly mixed with genres of the traditional vallenato genre.
As a producer, CASADIEGO has worked alongside heavy-weight producers the likes of Julio Reyes Copello (Marc Anthony, Alejandro Sanz, J. Lo) and Redone (Lady Gaga, Pitbull) composing 2 songs from the last album of Paulina Rubio, Brava: “Olvidate de Mi” and “Sabes Que Te Amo” while directing musically the first single, “Me Voy” a duet with Mexican regional singer, Espinoza Paz.
The 14th. Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast live Nov. 21 on Univision Network (8 pm ET / 7 pm Central) from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
