In honor of Women’s History Month, Latido Music has lined up 10 of our favorite all-women collaborations in Latin Music. In no particular order, here’s 10 girl-power anthems that we should be bumping all year long.
Mexican-American singer Becky G flipped the script on the antiquated idea that two women couldn’t get a hit together when she collaborated with Dominican reggaetonera Natti Natasha. Their fun and flirty music video for “Sin Pijama” has racked up over 1.8 billion on views on YouTube, outpacing some of top reggaetoneros. Following the success of this knockout duo, collaboration among women in Latin music has been on the rise, and we love to see it.
Mexican pop icon Thalía has been one of the top proponents for all-women collaborations. She became the first Mexican female artist to score a billion a views on YouTube with “No Me Acuerdo” featuring Natasha. On 2018’s Valiente album, Thalía also teamed up with Argentine pop princess Lali for “Lindo Pero Bruto.” Last year, Thalía joined forces with her Latin Music Queens co-stars, fellow Mexicana Sofía Reyes and Colombian rapper Farina, for the empowering “Tick Tock.” The trio of women didn’t have time for any foolishness.
Trini-American superstar Nicki Minaj got all up her in reggaeton gig on Karol G’s “Tusa.” She was even singing a bit in Spanish with the Colombian reggaetonera. Last year, Minaj had everyone, even the guys, singing, “Ahora soy una chica mala.” This was a regal bop fit for two queens and they wore that crown well. The song also garnered Minaj her first Latin Grammy nomination. That’s the power of “La Tusa.”
“No Al Aguacil”
One overlooked all-women collaboration is Mexican goddess Gloria Trevi’s “No Al Aguacil” with fellow Mexicana Paulina Rubio. The song was never released as a single (thought it should’ve been one) and it’s buried in Trevi’s 2011 album Gloria. Very much reflecting the early 2010s, “No Al Aguacil” is an electro-pop moment that these pop icons served with plenty of girl power.
In 2019, Argentine pop princess Tini came through with one of the best collaborations of the year. For kiss-off anthem “22,” she teamed up with Colombian singer Greeicy. Tini, who was turning 22 at the time, was not going to let any heartbreak rain on her birthday celebrations. Greeicy served as another voice of reason for why crying over that guy would not be worth it. This cumbiatón moment was everything.
Last year, Spanish star Lola Índigo recruited Mexican pop princess Danna Paola and Chilean singer Denise Rosenthal for “Santería.” Each woman adds their own flair and attitude to this bubbling pop cauldron. Like the Charmed sisters, the power of three is real here, and together these women serve a spellbinding collaboration.
Argentine pop princess Lali teamed up with Argentina’s top woman in Latin trap, Cazzu, last year. The alluring “Ladrón” was a moment of girl power that highlighted the talent in their country. The two women united in turning the tables on a no-good men. “You wanted to play me… the one that’s playing you is me,” Lali and Cazzu sang together.
Last year, rising Argentine singer Maria Becerra upped the girl power of her breakthrough hit “High.” For the all-women remix, she teamed up with Índigo and her compatriot Tini. Together, they also upped the angst factor on this mesmerizing, trap-lite bop.
Ivonne Galaz and Natalie López are making way for women in the male-dominated corridos tumbados space. As the two women signed to the Rancho Humilde record label, they teamed up for “La Rueda” on last year’s Corridos Tumbados Vol. 2 album. What a moment to hear two Mexicanas find strength in each other’s stories of overcoming the struggle. Galaz and López tap into an emotion in the genre that the guys can’t touch.
Three Brazilian queens joined forces for last year’s “Modo Turbo.” Anitta and Luísa Sonza aligned with drag pop superstar Pabllo Vittar. “Fasten your seatbelt / Turbo mode,” Sonza encouraged in Portuguese. They certainly took their fans for a wild ride with this fierce and stellar collaboration.
Natti Natasha is coming through with the perfect anthem in time for Women’s History Month. The Dominican reggaetonera assembled women like Farina, Cazzu, and Zuli La Duraca for a party in the “Las Nenas” music video.
Natasha and Becky G changed the game for all-women collaborations in Latin music.
Natasha is no stranger to getting women together for collaborations in Latin music. She teamed up with Chicana singer Becky G for the 13-times Platinum hit “Sin Pijama.” Since then, more Latinas have been coming together for absolute bangers, and “Las Nenas” is the latest one.
“Las Nenas” is another stellar collaboration.
“With this song I wanted to unite powerful and talented women who continue to make their way in the urban genre industry,” Natasha said in a statement. “I’m excited to release a song entirely by women and show how capable we are of taking Latin music to another level. I am sure that we are going to breakthrough and we hope that more girls will join us to cause a little ‘disorder.'”
Natasha brings together women from all over the world for “Las Nenas.” Farina represents Colombia, Cazzu comes from Argentina, and Zuli La Duraca is a proud Puerto Rican rapper. The song was produced by reggaeton legend Luny and rising Panamanian star Dímelo Flow. The four women unleash a new perreo intenso with empowering energy. Natasha, Farina, Cazzu, and Zuli La Duraca rap about creating “disorder” and raising a ruckus. Las Nenas serve up a fierce and fabulous club banger.
It’s ladies’ night in the music video.
The music video for “Las Nenas” was directed by Daniel Durán in Miami. Natasha and her girls throw a wild house party where the hunky men are washing the sports car and the women are free to dance the night away. A surprise cameo by Becky G at the end might be hinting at another Natti collaboration in the future.
Last month, Natasha revealed her engagement to Raphy Pina. A few days later, she also revealed that she’s six-months pregnant with their child. Natasha proudly displayed her baby bump at the Premio Lo Nuestro awards.
