THE 25-year-old Rosalía Vila Tobella has become the first Spanish artist to win an award at the MTV Music Video Awards last night at the Prudential Centre, New Jersey.
Rosalía won the award for Best Latino Video for her hit single “Con Altura” with reggaeton star J Balvin, beating stars such as Drake, Selena Gomes and Daddy Yankee.
She was also nominated for Best new Artist which was eventually won by Billie Eilish.
She went on to perform the hit with J Balvin in front of the 20,000 strong audience.
“I come from Barcelona. Thank you for inviting me to sing on this stage in Spanish,” said the singer as she accepted her award.
