Recording Academy Adds Dozens of Credits for Bad Bunny’s 2023 Album of the Year Nominee

The Recording Academy has added the names of dozens of collaborators to Bad Bunny’s historic album of the year contender, Un Verano Sin Ti. It has also amended the credits on five other nominees in the category.

The nominations for the 65th annual Grammy Awards were announced on Nov. 15, but the Academy has made dozens of tweaks and corrections to the list, which it posts on its website. That’s to be expected in a list of this size, with thousands of nominees across 91 categories.


Some of the changes on Bunny’s credits are minor (but of course important to these individuals). The name of songwriter Martin Coogan was corrected from Mick Coogan. The spelling of songwriter Julian Quiles Betancourt’s last name was corrected from Bentancourt.

Un Verano Sin Ti is the first Spanish-language album to be nominated for album of the year. Here’s how the nominations credits now read on that album. (Changes and additions are in bold.)
