Bruno Mars’ name is lighting up Billboards…
The part-Puerto Rican R&B singer picked up five trophies at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards.
Mars, who’d previously taken home one award in 30 tries from 2011 to 2017, was one of the night’s big winners on the strength of his most recent Grammy-winning album, 24K Magic.
Mars won the awards for Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Tour and Top R&B Song for his hit single “That’s What I Like.”
But Mars wasn’t the only five-time winner…
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee finally reaped much-deserved awards for their inescapable global hit “Despacito.”
The 40-year-old Puerto Rican singer and 41-year-old Puerto Rican rapper took home some of the night’s biggest prizes, including Top Hot 100 Song, Top Streaming Song (Video) and Top Selling Song for their collaboration with Justin Bieber.
These were the first-ever Billboard Music Awards for Fonsi, and the latest for Daddy Yankee, who’d previously claimed two awards in 2005 for his album Barrio Fino.
Another first-time winner… Ozuna.
The 26-year-old Puerto Rican reggaeton and Latin trap singer was named Top Latin Artist, and his album Odisea won for Top Latin Album.
Meanwhile, Cardi B was makin’ money moves at this year’s BBMAs.
The 25-year-old half-Dominican American rapper was named Top Rap Female Artist, her first-ever Billboard Music Award.
