Romeo Santos has topped the nominations for the 2016 Billboard Latin Music Awards for the second consecutive year.

The 34-year-old singer received 12 nods in 11 categories, including artist of the year, songwriter of the year, and producer of the year. Santos snagged song category nominations as well such as Hot Latin Song of the year for "Propuesta Indecente," which stayed on the top 10 of Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart for 125 weeks, according to Billboard's website.

The awards ceremony will broadcast live on April 28 on the Telemundo network, after the Billboard Latin Music Conference scheduled on April 25-28 at the Ritz Carlton in Miami Beach, the news outlet noted.

Coming in second behind Santos are Enrique Iglesias and Nicky Jam, who both got 11 nominations each. J. Balvin got eight nods, while Juan Gabriel and Mexican rock band Maná are both up for seven nominations. Ariel Camacho y Los Plebes del Rancho is also competing in seven categories. Billboard wrote that the group's chart activity spiked after the 22-year-old Camacho died in a car crash in February 2015.

Aside from honoring artists, producers, and songwriters, the awards will also give recognitions to labels and publishers.

Listed below are some of the nominees. You can check out the full list on Billboard.
