Rosalía picked up a whopping five awards at the Latin Grammys on Thursday night, having been nominated for seven. 

Her album 'El mal querer,' through which she rose to stardom, won best album of the year, best contemporary pop vocal album, best recording package and best engineered album.

Meanwhile her song 'Con altura,' a collaboration with Spanish record producer 'El Guincho,' picked up best urban song. 

She was also nominated, but did not win prizes in the categories best pop song for 'Pienso en tu mirá' and best record for 'Aute couture.'

The prizes are the latest in a long list of accolades to take their place in Rosalía's trophy cabinet this year. 

These include two awards for 'Con Altura' at the European MTV awards at the start of November, as well as two at the global MTV awards for the song, which currently has nearly 1.1 billion views on Youtube.

Her first single from the album 'El mal querer' also picked up two awards at last year's Latin Grammys. 'Malamente' had been released two weeks prior, but was the only song from the album that was up for awards. 

She was also ranked fifth in the BBC's Sound of 2019 rankings in January this year. With the year of Rosalía not yet up, there may yet be more success to come for the Catalan singer.
