Great news: the nominations for the 61st annual Grammy Awards were announced on Friday. Better news: More women are being recognized in major categories than last year.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, of the 86 awards that were given last year, just 17 were handed to women or girl-headed bands, but with more ladies in the competition, these numbers may soon increase. One effort the award show made to widen representation is by expanding the number of nominees from five to eight in its four major categories: album of the year, song of the year, record of the year and best new artist.

Among the women up for Grammy Awards in 2019 are a few chart-topping Latinas. Take a look!
