The Lo Nuestro Award for Tropical/Salsa New Artist of the Year is an honor presented annually by American network Univision. It was first awarded in 1989 and has been given annually since to recognize the most talented performers of Latin music.[1] The nominees and winners were originally selected by a voting poll conducted among program directors of Spanish-language radio stations in the United States and also based on chart performance on Billboard Latin music charts, with the results being tabulated and certified by the accounting firm Deloitte.[1][2] At the present time, the winners are selected by the audience through an online survey.[3] The trophy awarded is shaped in the form of a treble clef.[1]

The award was first presented to Nicaraguan singer Luis Enrique. Puerto-Rican American performer Olga Tañón was a nominee in 1993[4] and eventually became the most awarded performer in Lo Nuestro Awards history, with 22 accolades.[5] American singer Marc Anthony won the following year and also received the Grammy Award for Best Tropical Latin Performance for the album Contra la Corriente in 1998.[6] Puerto-Rican American artist Elvis Crespo earned the award in 1999, the same year that his songs "Suavemente" and "Tu Sonrisa" peaked at number-one at the Billboard Latin Songs chart.[7] At the 12th Lo Nuestro Awards, Son by Four was named Tropical New Artist of the Year aided by the massive success of their single "A Puro Dolor", which later ranked 1st at the Hot Latin Songs 25th Anniversary chart.[8] Colombian singer-songwriter Fonseca won in 2007 and also earned the Latin Grammy Award for Best Tropical Song.[9] In 2013, the Pop, Regional Mexican and Tropical/Salsa New Artist of the Year categories were merged on a Lo Nuestro Award for Best New Artist category in the General Field;[10] however, the following year, the Lo Nuestro Award for Tropical New Artist of the Year was reincorporated.
