“Con Altura” by Rosalía ft. J Balvin, and El Guincho REPLACE
Why it’s dope: Have you heard the beat on this one? Besides the dope instrumentals, Rosalía’s smoky soprano really does slap and for that we thank her.
“Como Un Bebé” by J Balvin, ft. Bad Bunny, and Mr Eazi
Why it’s dope: There’s something special when reggaeton embraces its African roots, and with the actual addition of Afrobeats (provided and produced by Mr. Eazi) with J. Balvin and Bad Bunny’s vocals makes this chef’s kiss amazing. You’ll be shaking your butt in a circle with this track right here.
“Aguanile” by Héctor Lavoe
Why it’s dope: Every Latinx person already knows what’s up when Hector Lavoe just chants “Aguanile” at the top of his lungs. It means it’s time to one, dance, and sing the hell out of it from beginning to end.
“Callaita” by Bad Bunny
Why it’s dope: If you don’t like Bad Bunny by now I really don’t know what to say. This track is slower than his others so you can grind on bae nice and smooth-like at the crib.
“Quimbara” by Celia Cruz
Why it’s dope: Another Latinx classic, “Quimbara” is meant to be danced to! The percussion all by itself is so addictive, and you get those Afro-Cuban and Dominican feels throughout the song. Anyway, Celia Cruz is a legend and everyone has to bow down in absolute respect.
“Mia” by Bad Bunny ft. Drake
Warner Records/ OVO Sound
Why it’s dope: Bad Bunny and Drake somehow made a hit to listen to all the time which again, isn’t surprising because they’re hit-makers, but there really isn’t any more to be said.
“I Like It” by Cardi B ft. Bad Bunny and J Balvin
Atlantic Recording Corporation / Warner Music Company
Why it’s dope: Once Cardi B sampled Pete Rodriguez’s “I Like It Like That” everyone already knew it was gonna be a hit, but with Bad Bunny AND J Balvin as a feature? It was like a supernova. Thank you, Cardi, for giving us an updated version on a song we already loved.
“Suavamente” by Elvis Crespo
Sony BMG Music Entertainment LLC
Why it’s dope: A classic that you can automatically dance to anytime you feel like it. Besamé, baby! Pro tip: watch the music video, you’ll find something new every time.
“Pienso En Tu Mirá” by Rosalía REPLACE
Why it’s dope: We continuously stan Rosalía for her fresh take on flamingo and with this joint, it solidified why she’s popping right now.
“Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi” by Ozuna ft. Rosalía
Why it’s dope: Rosalía and Ozuna giving us a romantic duet none of us knew we needed, especially during cuffing season.
“Te Robaré” by Nicky Jam ft. Ozuna
Sony Music Entertainment
Why it’s dope: The beat alone really captures you.
“Taki Taki” by DJ Snake ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B

Why it’s dope: I mean…this song was a hit and it’s still a hit. There’s not much else to say.
“Safari” by J Balvin
Why it’s dope: With Pharrell’s amazing production and J Balvin’s voice you’re guaranteed a bop and that’s exactly what you’ll get here.
“Si Una Vez” by Selena
Why it’s dope: A ballad to end all ballads, to be honest. She really didn’t have to go this hard, but she did and for that I’m greatful.
“Amor Prohibido” by Selena
Why it’s dope: It’s a legendary bop you probably already know all the words to.
“Qué Pena” by Maluma ft. J Balvin
Sony Music Entertainment
Why it’s dope: Maluma and J Balvin decided they were gonna kill it and that’s what they did. The hook will be stuck in your heads for weeks.
