10 Best Latin Albums of 2017

Ozuna, Bomba Estéreo, Residente and more

Rapper Cardi B became the first Dominican artist to hit Number One on the Billboard Hot 100, and reggaetoneros like Bad Bunny, Nicky Jam and Maluma piqued the interest of anglophone audiences after some hot crossover collaborations. Although 2017 was a banner year for Latin pop and trap singles, the market hardly accounts for just how expansive Latin music really is.
