Whether you need a soundtrack for your workout, some weekday motivation, or just want to take a listen to the hit songs currently on the Billboard charts, we have you covered. The following Latino songs will get you moving and grooving.
“X” Nicky Jam x J Balvin
“X” is so catchy and danceable, I’m claiming it as the next “Despacito.” The song, a mix of dancehall and reggae, is currently #2 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, and there’s no reason it can’t get to #1. You’ve been warned: the synth horn will get you!
“Dura,” Daddy Yankee
Daddy Yankee continues to let everyone know who the King of Reggeaton is. Currently at #3 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart (and predicted by some to be the next #1 Latin song), “Dura,” is another jam that will have you moving (expect plenty of neck movements lol). Influenced by dancehall (in fact, reggaeton in general is influenced by the genre), the song has the most colorful video ever (’90s vibes!).
“Dejela que Vuelve,” Piso 21 Featuring Manuel Turizo
You have to love a song that you can dance to, but that also has a message you can learn from. Piso 21’s “Dejela que Vuelve” (which features Manuel Turizo) talks about letting true love come back to you after they have left, while not being desperate or overly eager in the process. This is a message we can definitely co-sign on.
“Scooby Doo Pa Pa,” DJ Kass
The best songs are also accompanied by an equally awesome dance. “Scooby-Doo Pa-Pa,” by Dominicano DJ Kass, sparked a viral dance craze that will get you shimmying as fast as you can say “Shag-gy!”
“Corazon,” Maluma X Nego do Borel
Maluma takes it to Brazil for the super-catchy song (and video for) “Corazon.” “Corazon” is a remix of the Brazilian hit “Você Partiu Meu Coração” by Nego de Borel, featuring Anitta and Wesley Safadão. De Borel is featured in this part-Spanish, part-Portuguese jam.
“Echame La Culpa,” Luis Fonsi & Demi Lovato
Luis Fonsi can do no wrong lately when it comes to Latino music. “Echame La Culpa,” his duet with Demi Lovato, may have been out for a while, but that doesn’t stop it from being on repeat on my Spotify web player (and #6 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart). We can’t wait to hear more music en Español from Demi!
“El Farsante” (Remix), Ozuna & Romeo Santos
The “El Farsante” Remix, an Ozuna song featuring Romeo Santos, was another hit that was predicted to reach the #1 spot earlier this year. Although it peaked at #2 (and is currently at #4) on the Billboard Hot Latin Song chart, it’s still a fabulous jam, a musical apology by two of the sweetest voices in Latin music.
“Me Niego,” Reik Featuring Ozuna & Wisin
Another hit song with Ozuna is”Me Niego” by Reik (which features the Dominican-Puerto Rican artist). The catchy reggaeton jam speaks on the power of love., and we’re here for it!
“EL BAÑO,” Enrique Iglesias Featuring Bad Bunny
You can always count on Enrique Iglesias to deliver some catchy (and slightly raunchy) music you can dance to. This song is all about making out in the bathroom first, and getting to know the person later.
