From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Latin Grammy Award for Album of the Year has been awarded every year since the 1st Latin Grammy Award. The award is presented to the artists, producers, the engineers and/or mixers and the mastering engineers.

Alejandro Sanz is biggest winner in this category, with 3 victories (2001, 2002 and 2004). Juanes has won the award twice (2003 & 2008). Shakira became the first female winner in 2006. Calle 13 became the first urban act to win this award in 2009 and the only, so far, to be ever nominated for the award.

Years reflect the year in which the Latin Grammy Awards were awarded, for music released in the previous year.
