The MTV Video Music Awards, the midsummer event that traditionally takes place in the New York Radio City Music Hall, is, also in the 2018 edition, an excellent opportunity to remember the latest music successes; the best of which will be propose by ProfessionalWeddingDJ (DJ for weddings in Italy), during your forthcoming destination wedding in our country.
Undoubtedly, womens are the rulers of this edition: the cuban Camila Cabelo took home two importants awards: artist of the year and video of the year, with Havana, in heavy rotation from last winter. Below, an acoustic version that we have proposed as a background music for the dinners of some wedding parties, and has been a great success (many guests have asked us who was the singer of this soft reinterpretation).
Also worthy of mention are the other singers who have been awarded: Ariana Grande, with No Tears Left to Cry (a remarkable proof of his vocal talents), elected best Pop video, and Nicki Minaj, with Chun-Li, best Hip Hop video. Attended to the event also Madonna: she performed on stage, at the Radio City Music Hall in New York, for the tribute to the Queen of the Soul Aretha Franklin, just passed away (you can read here our article).
Another “superwoman” of the show, Jennifer Lopez won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, and the best “featuring” prize, shared with the “colleagues” Cardi B and DJ Khaled, for the song Dinero. She also performed a truly immersive concert.
About JLo, we rember you that there are many songs of the portorican singer very appreciated for the wedding parties. An example: First Love (released in 2014); romantic, perfect for the cutting of the cake or, even better, for the first dance of the happy couple.
Returning to the present day, the Best Song of the year award went to Rockstar by Post Malone, who beat Ed Sheeran, in nomination with Perfect. The british singer, that hadn’t completely convinced the VMA jury, is at the top of our 2018 songs chart for the cut of the cake and the first dance of the spouses: Ed Sheeran, after Thinking Out Loud, confirms this “weddings specialization ” .
DANCE MUSIC FOR YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING IN OUR COUNTRY
Leaving, for the moment, romantics atmosphere, let’s go on with the dance music. The Best Dance Video was assigned to Avicii, with Lonely Together: the deserved homage to the producer who died a few months ago. One Kiss by Calvin Harris (with the vocals of the beautiful Dua Lipa) is officially the Song of Summer, in Italy too (and we love to propose it in our international events). This piece is really one of the most successfull of the season, also in our ProfessionalWeddingDJ wedding parties!
Finally, some words for the Best Latin Video category, which, over the years, has become more and more important: J Balvin (Mi Gente) won the challenge; the other nominees, very, very competitive, were Luis Fonsi (Échame La Culpa) and Daddy Yankee (Dura).
Sure to have given you some ideas for the songs that will be the protagonists of your wedding, we take this opportunity to thank you all, friends of ProfessionalWeddingDJ, for the attention and affection with which you follow us!
