We Ranked Ricky Martin’s Top 25 Music Videos
Ricky Martin has been rocking our ears since he was just a little thing in the boy band Menudo. Yet, his solo career has kept us captivated for decades. He has given us some great Spanish and English-language hits and we just keep loving everything he puts out. It is always made better when he gives us an accompanying music video because he is kind of nice on the eyes. Here are Ricky Martin’s top 25 music videos ranked by us.
25. “Tu Recuerdo” (MTV Unplugged)
Martin loves giving his fans a more intimate feel with his music videos and this includes posting videos of live performances. That’s right. If you visit his YouTube page, there are several videos with millions of views that are nothing more than concert videos of the man doing his thing live.
Even a grainy music video shot in the 1990s is on the top 25 list because there is just something about watching him walk around Paris. The city of love just loves this man and we do too.
Just look at that baby faced angelito. Martin might be a total daddy now but it wasn’t too long ago that the fresh-faced singer was melting hearts with his smooth face and extra stylized hair.
22. “Y Todo Queda En Nada”
This is what a rugged man looked like in 2003. A sleeveless shirt with some kind of textured wording on the front and just a small amount of stubble. Martin did the damn thing with his music video for this song and it kind of still works.
21. “Come With Me”
This one definitely gave us some “Waiting For Tonight” vibes with the dance party feel and the lasers projecting all over the place. That being said, it is something that we have seen before so it doesn’t really get too high on this list.
Martin does love a good collaboration. In fact, Martin has collaborated with just under 30 artists giving his and their music so much depth and we, the fans, are the ones who truly benefit.
19. “La Mordidita”
Who doesn’t like a good zombie apocalypse? Martin’s take on the classic horror genre is even better because instead of people turning into flesh eating monsters, they are becoming dance crazed people. That’s an apocalypse we could all get into.
18. “La Bomba”
Another classic from Martin’s younger years. It is incredible to see the questionable fashion choices that would never happen now, including those chunky sandals but he still makes it look good.
17. “Bella (She’s All I Ever Had)”
This video will only make you think about one thing: “Ghost” with Demi Moore. If you don’t know what that movie is, look it up and you’ll definitely get the reference. He is legit just walking around as a ghost thinking about the life he once had with his SO.
16. “Nobody Wants To Be Lonely”
Yup. Martin once did a duet with the one and only Christina Aguilera. The two vocal powerhouses definitely keep your attention as they sing this song about love, lose, and hope.
15. “She Bangs”
You were probably very young when this song came out but you still sang every word without realizing what he was talking about. Not to mention that the music video is trippy af. Like, is he a mermaid? Are they underwater or in a dry place dancing. The use of underwater Martin shots cropped onto the dance floor is pretty amazing.
The best Ricky Martin is the sensual club singing Ricky Martin and that is exactly what you get in “Adiós”. He will make you fall in love with him as he uses his voice to seduce everyone within ear shot and it works.
13. “Disparo Al Corazón”
What is more attractive than a man taking the time to reflect on himself and the decision he has made? Nothing. Martin spends this music video just looking in a mirror and is given glimpses into certain scenes until the mirror finally shatters form the pressure. Talk about art.
12. “Fuego Del Noche, Nieve Del Día”
A surprise cameo is always the best cameo. Not only do you get to see a bearded and long-haired Martin in this video, you also get to see a young Kate del Castillo. Low key, it is pretty amazing to watch them interacting on the screen as lovers in the throws of passion.
11. “Private Emotion”
This music video is a head scratcher. Like, what exactly is going on is always going to be a mystery. Martin and a mystery woman in a hotel room are frozen at the beginning and slowly thaw the video shows us the scenes that led to this moment in reverse.
10. “Tal Vez”
That’s right. Another live performance video. Martin is such a good performer that you are captivated while he stands still and sings. Maybe it is all of the facial expressions he makes or the way he moves his body. All we know is that he can sing to us any day.
9. “I Don’t Care”
A handsome man. A car. A smile. What more does one need to create a top notch music video? How about two dope collaborators in Fat Joe and Amerie. He is just so smooth.
8. “La Copa De La Vida”
The cup of life is a mysterious and intriguing notion from many folklores. But that isn’t what’s going on here. Instead, Martin created this song for the World Cup and the music video is about as amazing as Shakira’s World Cup songs.
7. “Vente Pa’ Ca”
This music video is just to hot to handle with both Ricky Martin and Maluma. Tbh, we could totally get down with that kind of party for sure. So when is the next get together, y’all?
6. “El Mejor De Mi Vida Eres Tú”
The year after coming out, Martin did what a lot of people do: broadcast it. This music video is just one year after coming out and it is a very sweet tribute to coming out and living your authentic self. Martin is shown with an = sign on his chest which has become a symbol of the struggle for equality within the LGBTQ community.
Sorry but you are going to have to excuse me because I just can’t right now. This man is like fine wine and this music video just shows how little he has aged since his first time on the tv.
4. “Te Extraño, Te Olvido, Te Amo”
Admit it. You would love to have Ricky Martin chasing after you. Who wouldn’t? Sure. Some of this music video is alittle creepy, like how he watches the woman from his window with binoculars but overall, the sentiment is so sweet. Everyone does questionable things when they are in love and can’t think straight.
Again, we find ourselves enjoying a video of Ricky Martin barefoot on stage singing to us like it’s his job. It kind of is but that’s not the point. This man is so inticing that you just can’t help but watch his little dance moves as her performs.
It’s always nice to see people being themselves authentically. Martin, a Caribbean man, is just spending time with his friends dancing, laughing and existing near the ocean. We’ll just ignore that the video is clearly just one very long ad for KIA.
1. “Livin’ La Vida Loca”
Original classics will always stay original classics. “Livin’ La Vida Loca” was probably the first song you remember dancing and singing to and it makes sense. All these years later, this song still gets people up and out of their seats and on the dance floor.
