The Latin Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Album was an honor presented annually at the Latin Grammy Awards from 2001 to 2011. The award was given to a male performer for albums containing at least 51% of new recordings of the pop genre.[1] Since its inception, the award category has had several name changes. In 2000 it was presented as Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. The following year onwards the award is known as Best Male Pop Vocal Album.[2]

Spanish artists have won the award more times than any other nationality, though award-winning albums have also been performed by musicians originating from Argentina, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. The award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance was presented in 2000 to Mexican singer Luis Miguel for "Tu Mirada".[3] No Es Lo Mismo and Paraíso Express, recorded by Alejandro Sanz, Adentro, performed by Ricardo Arjona and La Vida... Es un Ratico by Juanes, received the award and also earned the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album.[4][5][6] Sanz is the most awarded singer in the category with three accolades, while performers Marc Anthony, Alejandro Lerner and Marco Antonio Solís share the record for most nominations without a win, with three each.
