SESAC Latina's Affiliates Shine at 2013 Premios Billboard
With eclectic styles and covering a wide variety of genres, SESAC Latina-affiliated artists are well-represented among the nominees of the 2013 Premios Billboard, which honor the most popular Latin artists, albums and songs as determined by sales, airplay, streaming and social media statistics. Prominent among the finalists is the impossible-to-categorize PSY (KOMCA), whose song "Gangnam Style" has become the crossover hit of the year with its border- and language-crossing magic. In addition, the pioneering "tribalero" group 3BallMTY is competing in four categories, among them the high-profile Song of the Year with "Inténtalo" (Try It), featuring América Sierra and El Bebeto.
The list of finalists also includes "Llamada de mi Ex" (Call From my Ex), performed by La Arrolladora Banda El Limón de René Camacho and written by SESAC Latina affiliate Ariel Barreras (SACM). Already awarded the No. 1 position in Billboard Magazine's 2012 year-end ranking of Hot Latin Songs, this song is a finalist in the categories of Airplay Song of the Year and Regional Mexican Song of the Year.
