Balvin was nominated for Song of the Year for “Agua,” Best Reggaeton Performance for “Tu Veneno” and Best Urban Song for “Agua.”

However, he voiced his discontent for the organization on Twitter.

“Los Grammys no nos valoran , pero nos necesitan. Es mi opinión y nada contra los otros géneros porque se merecen todo el respeto . Pero ya el truco esta aburrido . Les damos Rating pero no nos dan el respeto ✊(Pd. Estoy nominado para que no vengan que estoy dolido ) JOSE,” he wrote. (“The Grammys don’t value us, but they need us. It is my opinion and nothing against the other genres because they deserve all the respect. But the trick is already boring. We give them Rating but they don’t give us respect P.S. I’m nominated, so don’t come and tell me I’m hurt.”)

“Los que tienen poder en el género NINGUNO DEBERÍA IR !! es decir todos porque somos un movimiento,” he continued. (“Those with power in the genre, NONE SHOULD GO !! I mean everyone, because all of us are a movement.”)
