Amplifying the original initiative as global music gains wider popularity, Premios de Oro y Platino was created in 2001 to recognize successful albums and singles that are more than 50% Spanish language.

Billboard Español revealed earlier this year, "2022 already demonstrates how Latin music will be a continuing force to be reckoned with in the United States (and beyond)" and standout artist Becky G scored the Top Latin Album with 3X multi-Platino ESQUEMAS and Top Latin Single for the 23X multi-Platino collaboration "MAMIII" with Karol G (Sony Music Latin). At mid-year U.S. Latin music, which outpaced overall U.S. tallies, grew its share to a record high at 6.6% of total revenue.
