In Charge of the Music? Here’s the Ultimate Holiday Party Playlist
DJ Lezlee has spun at some of the biggest parties worldwide including Coachella, the ESPN Espy Awards and Nike events. As this festive season heats up, she takes five to give us the ultimate holiday party playlist.
“The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra
The door bell rings! It’s time to greet your guests and set the mood. DJ Lezlee turns to the classics for a party starter.
“Sabor a Mi” by El Chicano
You gotta sprinkle in your latin classics too. DJ Lezlee nods to the 70’s queen, Ersi Arvizu, for this old bolero.
“Love Yourself” by Justin Bieber
Yes, The Bieb can be a part of your holiday soiree. This song off his new album is one of Lezlee’s guilty pleasures — and she thinks it should be yours too.
“Santa Baby (Spanish)” by Mariachi Divas
Dinner time! Set the table vibe with fun holiday throwbacks.
“Lloraras” by Dimensión Latina
This old favorite of DJ Lezlee’s family will be sure to keep your guests feelin’ the beat in their seats throughout the meal.
“Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” by Selena

Selena is always a welcomed voice. Since DJ Lezlee knows you can’t ever play just one Selena song, she suggests this as a good starter.
“Cumbia Sampuesana” by Conjunto Tipico Vallenato
Put down those napkins, its time to dance! You can’t have a latin party without this cumbia according to DJ Lezlee.
“Que bello” by Sonora Tropicana
“Oye Mi Amor” by Maná
This one’s an easy call for Lezlee to throw in the mix. Plus it’s her tia’s favorite!
“Vivir Mi Vida” by Marc Anthony
Get ready, this is the part in the night where everyone sings along really, really loud. DJ Lezlee gives us the green light on anything Marc Anthony.
“Danza Kuduro” by Don Omar
To keep the energy going, turn to that feel good music.
“White Iverson” by Post Malone
The party has been fun, but it’s getting close to closing time. This year’s popular rap ballad is perfect to get people into chill mode.
“Lottery” by Kali Uchis
DJ Lezlee can’t get enough of this new Colombian artist. End the night with this cool mix of island vibes and soul.
