These Dances From Popular Music Videos Will Get You Off Your Seat This Quarantine

Dance choreography is the main event in these videos brought to us by Daddy Yankee, Enrique Iglesias, Rosalia, CNCO & Natti Natasha, and J Balvin, among others.

You don’t have to be a professional dancer to let yourself get carried away in the dance moves; you can become an expert in flamenco or dembow by following the beat of your favorite artists. 

Gente de Zona, CNCO, Marc Anthony, Tini or Daddy Yanee are some of the artists that incorporate the most dance in their music videos. Rosalía has also begun showing us her dance moves in her videos, fusing Flamenco with her style and her dances.

At Latido music, we bring you this selection of videos so you can get excited to add a little rhythm, to your days following these steps:

“Con Calma” — Daddy Yankee & Snow

With the help of the public, this song became the “Hit Favorite” at the Kid’s Choice Awards in 2019. Yankee sampled Snow’s “Informer,” which led to the two meeting and creating a musical combination that has us all dancing. In the video, Daddy Yankee’s double is Mexican dancer Pocho Gonzalez.

“Bailando” — Enrique Iglesias feat. Descemer Bueno y Gente de Zona

Just when some people were starting to think Enrique Iglesias had lost his momentum, out came this collaboration that quite literally made everyone dance. Since its release in 2014, “Bailando” became one of those songs that gets the party going. Ana Karla Suarez, a fellow Cubana, made everyone fall in love with her moves.

“X” [EQUIS] — Nicky Jam feat. J Balvin

The nature, freshness, and closeness of the two artists helped the video to this song reach more than 100 million views on YouTube in eight days, setting an entirely new record for Latin music on the platform. Jessy Terreo was the person in charge of directing the video and he called on Tanisha Scott’s, the choreographer in charge of Cardi B and Khalid (and a few Drake videos), expertise in choreography for the dance moves.

“Con Altura” — Rosalía feat. J Balvin

Another video that broke records on Youtube the moment it was released. Con Altura’s choreography was stamped with Rosalia’s signature moves, and this time from the sky. “Aquí en la altura estan fuertes los vientos,” sings J Balvin in the song.

“Zum Zum” — Daddy Yankee, Arcangel, RKM & Ken-Y, Natti Natasha

From the moment of its release, Raphy Pina declared this song “La Super Formula.” Well, we could not expect anything less of this song that sampled the LunyTunes’s beat. Marlon P was in charge of directing the video with Natti Natasha in one of her most bold looks to date.

“China” — Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G, Ozuna, J Balvin

With the help of Tainy on production, this video by Marlon P made the choreography the main event. Five leading artists in the genre invitan a perrear en la disco with this song that reminds us of Daddy Yankee’s “Ella Me Levanto,” which includes the beat to Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me”

“Glee” star Naya Rivera is presumed dead after going missing in southern California. The actress was on a boat in Lake Piru with her 4-year-old son when she went missing July 8 in Ventura County.

Authorities are searching for Naya Rivera after going missing.

Naya Rivera is presumed dead after her young son was found alone in a boat in Lake Piru. The lake is in Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County. Rivera’s son was found asleep on the boat three hours after Rivera rented the boat for the mother-son outing. According to officials, the son said that he and Rivera went for a swim and that she didn’t get back on the boat. CNN reports that the child was wearing a life vest while an adult life vest was found on the boat.

The search was paused overnight between Wednesday and Thursday and resumed as a recovery mission.

Fans do not think that Ventura County Sheriff’s are doing enough in the search for the actress. Emotions are high as fans share their grief and shock at Rivera’s sudden disappearance. According to Deputy Chris Dyer, the water where the boat was found is about 40 feet deep and that wind is a big factor in that part of the lake.

Authorities have classified the search as a recovery in a signal that they believe Rivera to be dead.

A recovery mission means that authorities are looking to recover a body from the lake. The news has devastated Rivera’s friends and family who want her brought home safe. Her son is reportedly doing well and is with relatives as authorities search for his mother in the lake.

Celebrities are sending messages hoping for Rivera to be alive.

Rivera wrote a memoir titled “Sorry, Not Sorry,” which gives an intimate look into her life during and after “Glee.” The actress was open and honest in her memoir bringing up some of the darkest and toughest times she endured and how it shaped her in the years that followed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Rivera’s loved ones.

Family Sets Up GoFundMe To Help Paletero In Chicago Retire

Every now and then there is a video or some news that bubbles up through the noise that makes you feel good. There’s another one of those stories coming out of Chicago thanks to a family helping a local paletero.

A viral video shows a family buying a paletero’s entire cooler of paletas.

The family wanted to help the paletero finish his work for the day because it was Father’s Day. After buying him out, the family decided to go one further for the older mand and set up a GoFundMe to help him retire for the life of selling paletas. Don Rosario, the paletero in the video, is 70 years old and is a staple of the East Side community in Chicago.

A GoFundMe for his retirement is raising a lot of money to help him out.

Selling paletas is exhausting work. Walking around all day long in the heat while trying to sell paletas is a demanding job. This family is taking it on themselves to help Rosario finally retire from the work so he can rest and enjoy his golden years.

There was so much love for Rosario that the fundraiser had to be closed and then reopened.

The family who set up the GoFundMe closed the fundraiser at one point, according to an update. This is because they were waiting to get his contact info and the fundraiser has exploded to more than $40,000. Then, after getting the info and enough interest to keep donating, the fundraiser was reopened. If you want to add to Rosario’s growing pot, you can click here.

The act of kindness that started on Father’s Day is still going and giving people hope.

These are dark times. We are still battling a virus. The U.S. is being forced to finally confront centuries of racial inequality. There are so many things happening that can make us mad. However, stories like these remind us that there is still so much good happening out there.

This is a ray of light in a world that is often so confusing right now.

“We’ve been left speechless, there were people from all over the states donating,” Michaelangelo Mosqueda, the GoFundMe creator, told Block Club Chicago. “It has been really eye-opening to see that when we all come together we do some great things for others.”
