Daddy Yankee’s Legendaddy (March 24, 2022), Becky G’s ESQUEMAS (May 13, 2022), Natanael Cano’s NataKong (April 8, 2022), and emerging artist Eslabon Armado’s Nostalgia (May 6, 2022) also qualify and make the deadline, to name a few. J Balvin’s JOSE (Sept. 2, 2021) and Natti Natasha’s Nattividad (Sept. 24, 2021) also make the cut based on their release dates.
