11 Latino Songs You Were Obsessed with in the 90s and 00s that You’re Now Embarrassed Of

We all have musical skeletons in our closet. Just think of some of the songs you were obsessed with in the 90s and 00s and tell me that you aren’t embarrassed AF about them now? It’s OK, you’re in a safe place, we won’t judge you because we liked the same ridiculous songs you did, like…

“Livin’ La Vida Loca” by Ricky Martin

Livin' La Vida Loca

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I swear the only reason we liked this song is because Ricky Martin is so charismatic, but bleh! I mean of course her skin had to be the color of “mocha” because that’s the only skin color that rhymes with “vida loca.”

“Gasolina” by Daddy Yankee

Remember when reggaeton was taking over the continent and “Gasolina” was the raunchy little anthem that even los gringos were grinding too? Yeah, good times.

“Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” by Selena

Yes, yes, Selena is La Reina and she can do no wrong, but if anyone else had tried to get us excited about this song, it would NOT have happened.

“Bailamos” by Enrique Iglesias

Like we were gonna turn down Enrique Iglesias when he asked us to dance? Not likely. Look! He still had the mole back then.

“Jenny from the Block” by JLo

Jenny from the Block

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back in the day of OG Bennifer, we let JLo convince us that she was still just like us…except no one was kissin’ our nalgas like that!

“Rico Suave” by Gerardo

Rico Suave Gerarda

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The truth is that this song has ALWAYS been embarrassing, pero ni modo. Sometimes we like it cheesy.

“Genie in a Bottle” by Christina Aguilera

Even Xtina found singing this song embarrassing, but it’s not like we don’t kinda still have the dance memorized.

“She Bangs” by Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin She Bangs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, Ricky Martin has already made the list, but there’s NO WAY we can let this one pass. This song is all kinds of wrong and so is the video. Poor Ricky.

“Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira

Shakira Hips Don't Lie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ay Shakira, Shakira, do you realize how ridiculous you made us look on the dance floor trying to move our caderas like yours? Even abuelas were in danger of breakin’ a hip.

 

“Macarena” by Los Del Rio

Admit it, this song is a curse that won’t die and yet you still dance to it at weddings and quinceañeras. Make it go away already!

“London Bridge” by Fergie

Only Fergie could make us think that this was sexy. “My London, London bridge wanna go down…” What does that even mean? It means something dirty right?
