Chiquis Rivera will be going up against her late mother, Jenni Rivera, once again

It was revealed Monday that Chiquis and Jenni would be going head-to-head in the 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards for the Hot Latin Songs Artist of the Year, Female category. Natalia Jimenez and Shakira will also compete for the award.

Much like 2014's Billboard Latin rankings, Romeo Santos and Enrique Iglesias had the most nominations. Billboard reports that Santos was nominated 21 times in 16 categories, and Iglesias was the second-most nominated artist with 19 nominations in 15 categories. The two now lead in the most nominations in a single year, breaking Tito El Bambino and Don Omar's 18 nominations.

J Balvin, Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona also garnered many nominations.

Drake is also up for a few nominations thanks to Santos. He may be able to take home the Crossover Artist of the Year, where he is competing against Becky G, Jason Derulo and Pharrell Williams.

Many of the newer faces were in the regional Mexican categories, such as Kevin Ortiz, Banda Tierra Sagrada and Remmy Valenzuela, Billboard reports.

The songs that are nominated were released between Feb. 1, 2014, and Jan. 31, 2015.
