Get In The Valentine’s Day Mood With This Playlist Of Spanish-Language Love Songs

Whether you’re a cynic about love or a hopeless romantic, you won’t be able to escape that Valentine’s Day is here. So why not embrace it? Remember, all you need is love! So, if you need some convincing of that — or if you’re counting down the days to Valentine’s Day — we have just what you need to get in the mood.

We’ve compiled the most beautiful Spanish love songs that are perfect for giving you (or your loved ones) the most love vibes ever. Back in the day, people would give their crush a mix with their favorite songs. Think of this love music list as your mix that will give you all sorts of emotions, and feel free to pass it on to your luva(s).

Be aware these songs are about love. Not about broken hearts or forcing someone to fall in love with you, but real love that is here to stay.

RBD – “Tu Amor”

Instagram/@rbd.porsiempre

We know that RBD has a ton of songs about love, but “Tu Amor” has to be one of our favorites. Yes, it’s in Spanglish, but it still counts!

Jose Jose – “Amar y Querer”

YouTube

There’s a rumor that Jose Jose invented love. Okay, while that be a lie, Jose Jose is the king of love songs. This one, in particular, is extra romantic. He always makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Los Enanitos Verdes – “Luz de Dia”

Instagram/@enanitosverdes

There are not many Spanish rock songs that will make you cry, or can explain the true wonders of love, but this song does exactly that. Enanitos Verdes may not have been the most popular rock band, but this song is the most beautiful rock ballad ever.

Selena – “Amor Prohibido”

YouTube

Selena has a lot of wonderful songs about love, but remember, this mix isn’t about love that is lost (or that doesn’t exist). This song not only screams that love is real, but she also says, people don’t want them to be together, just like Romeo and Juliet.

Juanes – “Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor”

Instagram/@juanes

Oof.

That’s what this song by Juanes makes us feel. When he released this song, Juanes was still becoming a household name. However, he hooked us in real good with this track.

Los Zafiros – “He Venido”

Instagram

Let’s go old-school for a bit, like real old school. Los Zafiros — a Cuban harmony vocal group — were around during the ’60s, but their music is timeless. This song is beyond romantic, take a listen and you won’t know what hit you. It may sound retro, but it’s a classic.

Shakira – “Tu”

YouTube

We will admit that there’s one other Shakira song in the mix. The girl has too many love songs, but “Tu” is one of her earlier tracks nad it’s so darn amazing.

Luis Miguel – “Mucho corazon”

YouTube

Luis Miguel is a master at love songs. He has a way of singing that makes you think he is in love with you. That’s probably why he has so many fans.

Sin Bandera – “Entra en mi vida”

YouTube

“Entra en mi vida/ Te abro la puerta/ Sé que en tus brazos ya no habrá noches desiertas” if those lines don’t make you feel love, then you are officially a robot.

Julieta Venegas – “Lento”

YouTube

If you’ve ever been in love (that deep obsessive love) you know the feeling of not wanting it to end. That’s what “Lento” by Julieta Venegas makes you feel. She wants every moment to be slow and magical, and that’s what the song really is. 

Christian – “No podras”

YouTube

Christian’s voice is rare, or we should say his pitch is out of this world. Sometimes people say that there is no way you can truly describe what love is. If you listen to this song by Christian, you will know exactly what love is.

Franco de Vita – “Te Amo”

YouTube

Even before we had experienced love (or even puberty), we had no idea what love was or anything. But for some reason, this song by Franco de Vita was everywhere, and women loved it so much. We automatically associated love at first sight with this song and knew that love could exist on any corner — if we only we had our heart open.

Fey – “Media Naranja”

YouTube

Some say that you’ll know if you found “the one” if they are your soul mates or if they compliment you in every way. Clearly Fey knows all about that feeling because she describes it perfectly in this song. And it will make you dance!

Tito El Bambino – “Llueve el Amor”

YouTube

Sometimes love can best be explained through motion. Tito El Bambino exudes romance through this music and “Llueve el Amor” will have you thinking that it does rain love.

Marisela and Marco Antonio Solis – “La Pareja Ideal”

YouTube

Marisela and Marco Antonio Solis were an actual couple, and who could ever question that? Their duets have so much chemistry. It’s a shame they are no longer together, but in our mind, they will always be the ideal couple.

Prince Royce – “Darte Un Beso”

YouTube

Oh, Prince Royce… Valentine’s Day would suck without you and your lyrics and your music, and your beautiful face! We will just leave it at that.

Luis Fonsi and Juan Luis Guerra – “Llegaste Tú”

YouTube

If someone said to you: “Yo soy el hombre más afortunado/ Me ha tocado un ser/ El que conoce cada línea de tu mano/ El que te cuida/ Y camina a tu lado,” you would simply respond by saying “you had me ‘yo.'”

Cafe Tacvba – “Eres”

YouTube

Cafe Tacvba may seem like a typical rock band but these guys are anything but typical. In fact, not only will they make you dance, and rock out, but also release one of the most beloved love songs of all-time.

Shakira – “Estoy Aqui”

YouTube

Here’s that other Shakira song that we had to include. This woman knows and understands all the intricacies of real love. She’s amazing at putting it on paper and singing it to the masses.

Wisin & Yandel – “Gracias A Ti”

YouTube

This song may seem like it was written for the fans of Wisin & Yandel but at the heart of it, it’s about love and showing that other person how much they mean to you. And if you can’t say it on Valentine’s Day, when else can you say it? The answer to that is every day

Billboard’s Latin Music Week Starts Tomorrow And These Are The ‘Can’t Miss’ Events You Can Join For Free

Billboard’s annual Latin Music Week has finally arrived and this year is extra special since it’s the 30th anniversary of the annual event. Not to mention the entire lineup of events – from concerts to Q&As – has gone virtual, making it easier than ever for you and me to join in.

Already the event schedule looks incredible, including a live Q&A with Jennifer Lopez and Maluma about Latin musics path to Hollywood.

So if you’re finding yourself bored at home (as so many of us continue social distancing) this is the perfect roundup of events to keep us entertained.

Billboard’s Latin Music Week starts today and it promises to be a one stop shop for music fans.

With all of us being cooped up at home still, this year’s Billboard Latin Music Week is hotly anticipated. The four-day immersive experience officially starts today (Tuesday, October 20) and will be dedicated to Latin music, culture, and entertainment.

And this yer is extra special because Billboard is celebrating it’s 30th birthday for the annual event, making it the longest running and biggest Latin music industry event. And this year for the first time ever it will be completely virtual, meaning you can easily join in on the intimate artist conversations, industry panels, workshops, and performances.

According to Leila Cobo, a VP at Billboard, “Latin music has become a formidable and undeniable uniting force around the world, so it’s fitting that this year’s virtual Latin Music Week will be globally accessible at no cost to the industry and fans for the first time. She added that “Our virtual event will allow us to connect with fans and artists from all over the world no matter where they are. During these very difficult times, we are thrilled to extend an invitation to all who wish to celebrate Latin music and culture.”

The week will be full of immersive events and online concerts that you won’t want to miss.

For the first time in its 30 years of existence, Billboard Latin Music Week will take place virtually, from Oct. 20-23, meaning that you can easily join in on all the events.

So far, Billboard has confirmed a long list of panels, performances, workshops and Q&As – including one with Jennifer Lopez and Maluma. And performances by Pharrel Williams, Anuel AA, Ozuna, J Balvin, Maluma, Becky G, Los Tigres Del Norte, and many others. You can get a look at the full lineup of events here.

The craziest/best part – it’s completely free! But you have to RSVP so make sure you sign up for your spot here.

This year’s events coincide with this year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards broadcasting live on Oct. 21 via Telemundo, with awards to be given out in 59 categories honoring the top artists, songs, albums, labels, publishers, songwriters, and producers of the year.

It’s hard to believe but Billboard is celebrating 30 years of Latin Music Week and looking back on stars before they were megastars.

Since this year marks the 30th anniversary of Latin Music Week, Billboard is taking a look back – way back. The music entertainment giant has put together a playlist of video interviews with stars before they became global sensations.

For example, Maluma’s interview from 2015 just as he was beginning to get mainstream recognition. OMG…that baby face!

Bad Bunny also has an old interview on the site from 2017 (ok…not that long ago) and he looks so different and even sounds so different. It’s so cool to look back on these artists and spot the differences.

Billboard has even put together the ultimate playlist to help commemorate the special week!

Featuring hits from all of this year’s top Billboard Latin Music Award contenders, this playlist is pure fire and will definitely hype you up – which is much needed since we’re all still staying at home amid this major spike in Coronavirus cases.

Remember, the events start today and you can get the full schedule and RSVP here.

Calle Ocho knows that you need something to make this never-ending quarantine feel better. Well, the upcoming concert promised to give everyone a chance to escape their reality for now.

Calle Ocho Live is coming to you this Sunday and promises a fun time in quarantine.

The U.S. has seen a very long Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent quarantine. Calle Ocho is giving you a chance to escape the shared reality of confinement we are all experiencing. In a time of self-isolation, this coming together of some of the biggest music stars is so exciting.

Calle Ocho is giving you a chance to still enjoy one of the biggest Latino music festivals.

Covid-19 has ended mass gatherings of people. We can’t have a music festival in person right now, but Calle Ocho knows that we can still have one virtually. Finally. A music festival where you don’t have to put on pants and can just enjoy some time dancing in your living room in just your comfy clothes.

Viewers can prepare for performances from Gloria Estefan.

The Cuban singing superstar is one of the most recognizable faces and voices in Latin music. Estefan has been rocking out for decades and people clearly still can’t get enough of her.

The Hispanic Heritage Month celebration also includes heart throb Camilo.

There is a lot to love about the Latino community and Camilo is one of them. Just kidding. The man is a talented musician and has one of the quirkiest looks in Latin music, and that is saying a lot. The Colombian singer is guaranteed to bring some excitement to Calle Ocho Live.

Peruvian songstress Daniela Darcourt will also be part of the lineup.

“We said we would create a strong, inclusive, and powerful line-up that captured the diversity of Latino tastes, genres, and cultures, and that’s what we’ve done here,” said Jorge Fernandez, president of the Kiwanis of Little Havana/Carnaval Miami in a statement.  “Through Calle Ocho Live, we’re not only stretching to do well for the families we serve through the Kiwanis of Little Havana Foundation but also through the way we reflect the evolution of Latinos in America.”

The lineup promises a fun, high-energy, and eclectic mix of music from throughout Latin America. Make sure you tune in on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. EST/ 12:00 p.m. PST.
