From reggaeton beats that made us dance at the clubs, to ballads that made us throw down a shot of tequila, these were the songs that Latino artists had us replaying over and over this year.
“Ginza” by J Balvin

This song got us twerking at clubs with lyrics like ‘Si necesita reggaeton dale.’ Even Santa got in on the action!
“El Perdon” by Nicky Jam and Enrique Iglesias
We didn’t have to wait for Adele’s “Hello” to rethink getting back together with our ex. When Nicky Jam dropped this reggaeton tune with soulful lyrics at the beginning of the year, we all had to down a shot of tequila to drown the bittersweet memories of a breakup. #Salud
“Same Old Love” by Selena Gomez

Seleners said goodbye to the Biebs this year (hopefully for good!) with this #ByeFelicia track. Or at least, we like to think that this song is a signal to finally end their on-again, off-again relationship. #TooLateToSaySorry
“Nada Mas Por Eso” by Luis Coronel
Luis Coronel might be one of the youngest stars on this list, but that didn’t stop us from going ? ? ? over his sweet regional Mexican love ballads.
“Borro Cassette” by Maluma
The Colombian reggaeton singer made us want to double check our #drunktextsfromlastnight after hearing the tongue-in-cheek lyrics to his popular clubbing song.
“El Mismo Sol” by Alvaro Soler feat Jennifer Lopez
Can we book a first-class ticket to Barcelona, stat? Imagine some tinto de verano flowing underneath the Barcelona moonlight while swaying to the beats of the 24-year-old Spanish native. JLo added into the mix for a pop vibe which = ? ? ?.
“Worth It” by Fifth Harmony feat Kid Ink
Our girls Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke and Lauren Jaregui are reppin’ Latina #squadgoals as part of phenom girl group Fifth Harmony. The group’s pop mix with Middle Eastern vibes for “Worth It” catapulted this hard-working group to super stardom this year.
“Shower” by Becky G
Becky G’s single had us singing in the shower, car and clubs with her bubble gum pop hooks.
“Hasta la Raiz” by Natala Lafourcade
With its rustic guitar licks and metaphorical lyrics, “Hasta la Raiz” kept us motivated to reach our goals in 2015. How could you not check off your to-do list with lyrics like “Sigo cruzando ríos, andando selvas, amando el Sol”?!
“La Gozadera” by Gente de Zona feat Marc Anthony
The tropical beats of the Caribbean and name dropping of pretty much all the Latin American countries made this an instant hit on our party playlists this year. We’re not surprised Gente de Zonnnaaa was the duo leading this hit song – they are a moving party!
“Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” by Selena
We’re throwing it back because we had to honor #TheQueen. Selena had a big year in 2015: MAC decided to honor her with a makeup line (coming soon!) and a huge festival in her home state of Texas honored the 20th anniversary her passing.
