14 Songs By Latin Artists That You'll Probably Be Jamming To All The Time

When you hear "Aguanile" with those horns, you already know what time it is.

1. "Si Una Vez" by Selena

Capitol Latin

Why it's dope: A ballad to end all ballads, to be honest. She really didn't have to go this hard, but she did and for that I'm greatful.

2. "Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi" by Ozuna ft. Rosalía

Columbia Records

Why it's dope: Rosalía and Ozuna giving us a romantic duet none of us knew we needed, especially during cuffing season.

3. "Como Un Bebé" by J Balvin, ft. Bad Bunny, and Mr Eazi

UMG Recordings

Why it's dope: There's something special when reggaeton embraces its African roots, and with the actual addition of Afrobeats (provided and produced by Mr. Eazi) with J. Balvin and Bad Bunny's vocals makes this chef's kiss amazing. You'll be shaking your butt in a circle with this track right here.

4. "Quimbara" by Celia Cruz

Fania Records

Why it's dope: Another Latinx classic, "Quimbara" is meant to be danced to! The percussion all by itself is so addictive, and you get those Afro-Cuban and Dominican feels throughout the song. Anyway, Celia Cruz is a legend and everyone has to bow down in absolute respect.

5. "Aguanile" by Héctor Lavoe


Why it's dope: Every Latinx person already knows what's up when Hector Lavoe just chants "Aguanile" at the top of his lungs. It means it's time to one, dance, and sing the hell out of it from beginning to end.

6. "Mia" by Bad Bunny ft. Drake

Warner Records/ OVO Sound

Why it's dope: Bad Bunny and Drake somehow made a hit to listen to all the time which again, isn't surprising because they're hit-makers, but there really isn't any more to be said.

7. "Taki Taki" by DJ Snake ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B

DJ Snake Music Productions Limited

Why it's dope: I mean...this song was a hit and it's still a hit. There's not much else to say.

8. "Te Robaré" by Nicky Jam ft. Ozuna

Sony Music Entertainment

Why it's dope: The beat alone really captures you.

9. "I Like It" by Cardi B ft. Bad Bunny and J Balvin

Atlantic Recording Corporation / Warner Music Company

Why it's dope: Once Cardi B sampled Pete Rodriguez's "I Like It Like That" everyone already knew it was gonna be a hit, but with Bad Bunny AND J Balvin as a feature? It was like a supernova. Thank you, Cardi, for giving us an updated version on a song we already loved.

10. "Suavamente" by Elvis Crespo

Sony BMG Music Entertainment LLC

Why it's dope: A classic that you can automatically dance to anytime you feel like it. Besamé, baby! Pro tip: watch the music video, you'll find something new every time.

11. "Qué Pena" by Maluma ft. J Balvin

Sony Music Entertainment

Why it's dope: Maluma and J Balvin decided they were gonna kill it and that's what they did. The hook will be stuck in your heads for weeks.

12. "Callaita" by Bad Bunny

Rimas Entertainment

Why it's dope: If you don't like Bad Bunny by now I really don't know what to say. This track is slower than his others so you can grind on bae nice and smooth-like at the crib.

13. "Safari" by J Balvin

Capitol Latin

Why it's dope: With Pharrell's amazing production and J Balvin's voice you're guaranteed a bop and that's exactly what you'll get here.

14. "Amor Prohibido" by Selena

Capitol Latin

Why it's dope: It's a legendary bop you probably already know all the words to.
