The Latin Grammys just happened, and this Sunday the American Music Awards are taking place. These shows got me thinking of some of the artists that I'm loving right now – some of them were nominated this year for awards, some of them even won last night, but one thing they have in common is that they're all great artists. As someone who's new at this, I love to study them and how they do what they do.

Hope you enjoy this little playlist of mine. It's in no specific order. And watch out, soon enough I'll be walking down those award show carpets myself!

1.Shaila Durcal, Asi

I love listening to this whole album! With ranchera artists, it reminds me of my mom and grandmas when they sing. It feels like I get a boost of power through my veins. A proud feeling.

2. Chris Brown, "Sweet Love"

Gives me chills.

and also by Chris Brown, "Don't Judge Me"

Good song to reflect on things.

3.Justin Bieber, "As Long As You Love Me"

Any girl feels like he can be singing it to her (blush blush).

4.One Direction, "Rock Me"

Love the feel of it, Listen to it when I'm cleaning my room or doing my nails :)

5.Frank Ocean "Thinking About You"

Just makes me want to chill.

6.Jesse & Joy, "Corre"

It's one of those songs that makes you feel emotion and makes you connect.

7.Pitbull featuring Shakira "Get It Started"

I love both of them but having them both on one song is amazing.

Work out Song :)

Love listening to this when I'm cleaning the house or cooking.
