Camila Cabello is Havana moment…
The 21-year-old Cuban and Mexican singer was the night’s big winner at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, taking home the top prizes of the night… Video of the Year and Artist of the Year.
Cabello won the Video of the Year award for the official clip to her Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping single, “Havana.” She’s only the second Latin artist to win the coveted Video of the Year prize, behind Christina Aguilera, who won the award in 2001 for her “Lady Marmalade” collaboration with Lil’ Kim, Mýa and P!nk (featuring Missy Elliott).
With the wins, Cabello, who’d previously earned four Moon Men as a member of Fifth Harmony, claimed her first two trophies as a solo artist.
But Cabello wasn’t the only Latin artist to win…
Cardi B, who entered the night with a leading 10 nominations, picked up three Moon Men—the first of her career.
The 25-year Dominican American rap sensation was named Best New Artist. She also picked up the award for Song of the Summer for “I Like It,” her chart-topping collaboration with J Balvin and Bad Bunny, as well as Best Collaboration for her single with Jennifer Lopez, “Dinero.”
J Balvin took home his first Moon Man as well…
In addition to his shared prize with Cardi B for Song of the Summer, the 33-year-old Colombian singer took home the trophy for Best Latin Video for his collaboration with Willy William, “Mi Gente.”
Meanwhile, JLo, already a winner with Cardi B, was honored with the Video Vanguard Award and delivered a high octane performance of her current and past hits to remind us that she’s still Jenny from the Block.
