The pioneer for Urban music, Nicky Jam, continues to make strides in the industry despite the ongoing pandemic. He has emerged as one of the most standout nominees at this year’s Premios Juventud 2020.
The artist is nominated in three different categories. One of which is “Juntos Encienden Mis Redes” (Together They Fire Up My Feed), shared with his fiance, model Cydney Moreau. Fans of the artist know that he not only likes to share his music on social media, but also shares glimpses of his personal life. One such glimpse was of his proposal to Cydney on the most romantic day of the year, Valentines day.
Most recently Jam released a new video, “Desahogo” (Relief), with Carla Morrison, that has reached nearly 7 million views on YouTube its opening week.
While the network has decided to forgo a live audience, they still intend to hold performance while keeping in line with safety regulations to help minimize the spread of COVID-19. Jam, who is set to perform that night, told his fans, “In this moment it is very important to follow the safety guidelines so that we don’t get infected with COVID-19 and infect others. We will keep doing our part to entertain you from the tv screen and with much gratitude for the love and support from the fans.”
Premios Juventud 2020 will air Thursday, August 13 on Univision.
