The Latin Grammy Award for Album of the Year is an honor presented annually at the Latin Grammy Awards, a ceremony that recognizes excellence and creates a wider awareness of cultural diversity and contributions of Latin recording artists in the United States and internationally.[1] The award is given to the performers, producers, audio engineers and mastering engineers for vocal or instrumental albums with 51% of new recorded songs. Albums of previously released recordings, such as reissues, compilations of old recordings and greatest hits albums packages are not eligible.[2] Due to the increasing musical changes in the industry, from 2012 the category includes 10 nominees, according to a restructuration made by the academy for the four general categories: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best New Artist and Album of the Year.[3]

Alejandro Sanz, Juanes and Juan Luis Guerra (one as producer) have won the most awards in the category with three wins. They are followed by Calle 13 with two winning albums. Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira became the first female recipient in 2006. Most nominated albums were recorded in Spanish language, though Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins, Maria Rita, Tribalistas and Caetano Veloso have been nominated for albums recorded in Portuguese language, with Lins winning the award in 2005 for Cantando Histórias.[4]

Some of the awarded albums have also earned the Grammy Award, such as No Es Lo Mismo and Paraíso Express, recorded by Sanz, La Vida... Es un Ratico by Juanes and Vida by Draco Rosa, for Best Latin Pop Album; La Llave de Mi Corazón by Guerra, for Best Traditional Tropical Latin Album; Fijación Oral Vol. 1 by Shakira, for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album; and Los de Atrás Vienen Conmigo by Calle 13 for Best Latin Urban Album.[5][6][7][8][9]

Miguel Bosé is the most nominated performer without a win, with four unsuccessful nominations. Rafael Arcaute, Eduardo Cabra, Gustavo Santaolalla and René Pérez are the most awarded producers, with two wins each, while Benny Faccone, Anibal Kerpel and Thom Russo have received the most awards as engineers/mixers, with two each. In 2013, the award was given to the album Vida by Draco Rosa.
