I have been listening to a couple of Latinx artists lately and thought I would create a new thread for anyone else who wanted to share any Latinx or music sung in Spanish. Here is ‘Ella Tiene Fuego’ from the album Regalo De Alma by Celia Cruz that I have been listening to recently:
Ana Tijoux rules!
A Dios Le Pido, La Camisa Negra and Mala Gente are all songs I heard on the radio all the time when I lived in Miami. All of them are by Juanes. They’re basically classics at this point.
Can you tell I like latin rock.
Also Hips Don’t Lie is better in spanish.
Listen I’m sorry
Speaking of songs on the radio, I remember hearing Juanes on La Calle in San Antonio, Texas and Mariposa Traicionera by Mana quite a bit in the early to mid 2000s.
Tangentially related: If you like Latinx music and want some visuals to go along with it, check out this documentary about one particular artist.
I love the Dutch angles and CG in this video, as well as the song being a bop
this whole list speaks to be me on a deep, approaching saccharine level of nostalgia http://remezcla.com/lists/music/throwback-reggaeton-bangers/
Also a fan of ppl like J Balvin, Ozuna, and Bad Bunny whenever I hear their crossover stuff (aka the things they’ve done with Cardi B), but don’t know them well enough to recommend anything.
Also, in terms of massive hits where the spanish version is better:
Speaking of Ruben Blades, I thought I would put up one of his most popular songs Pedro Navaja.
this is one of my favorite albums to listen to while cooking and is pretty insane from a drumming standpoint

Wow, those tracks were great @SloQlap thanks! Speaking of Puerto Rican rappers, I grew up when reggaeton was the new hot thing in music. I remember going to visit family in Puerto Rico and there were so many people playing reggaeton in their cars, on boomboxes, etc. Here is the track ‘Dile’ by Don Omar that played on the Spanish radio station often.
What part are you from? I’m from Mayagüez.
