5 Latin tracks that are guaranteed to be the soundtrack for your summer

Latin music is a wave you don't want to miss out on.

Although no-one particularly misses the sun-drenched summer of 2017, where one was practically smothered by Justin Bieber’s remix of the Luis Fonsi track Despacito, there is still a plethora of sizzling hot Reggaetón tracks that you could have on replay throughout 2019. Find some of the hottest Latin stars below and be sure to check out some of their newest standout tracks. Whether Latin music is your vibe or something new you might want to get into, it's undoubted that at least one song's sentiments will resonate you, even transcending the language barrier you might think initially divides you...

1) MIA – Bad Bunny (feat. Drake)

You may remember this leading artist from his record-breaking summer smash, I like it, with Cardi B. Bad Bunny is the Latin world’s answer to trap music, and his collaboration with Drake solidifies his status as not only one of Puerto Rico’s strongest acts, but as a full-fledged cross-over artist. The song sees both Bad Bunny and Drake professing their love for a girl, which emphatically bubbles over the throbbing pulse of a classic reggaetón beat, the perfect concoction for “un Fuego” song.

2) Becky G X Maluma – La Repuesta 

Becky G scores another viral hit in her collaboration with Maluma, which presents us with a feminist anthem centred upon Becky’s refusal to be objectified by men. Although the infectious chorus is sure to ear-worm itself into your head, it is this song’s message of empowerment which makes it such an essential in 2019.

3) Camila Cabello X Pharell Williams – Sangria Wine 

Although Camila’s Latin inspired Havana was a huge hit in 2017, the lesser-known Sangria Wine interpolates Spanish into a hypnotic song befitting the club. The viral dance sequence that followed the release of the track cements it as a dance anthem, which is why this catchy track needs to immediately be added to every playlist you have.

4) Aitana – Teléfono

With a message reminiscent of Dua Lipa’s New Rules, this song advocates for leaving one’s phone at home and enjoying the highs of single life. Although the song is light-hearted enough to be listened to with a smile, it presents crucial advice to anyone getting over an insistent ex, in its reminder to make yourself a priority no matter the cost.

5) CNCO – Pretend 

The name CNCO may be familiar from their remix with Little Mix last year, but the boyband is back with a new song in time for the summer of 2019. The track encapsulates the excitement of a burgeoning new romance in its tender exploration of secret late-night rendezvous and the blossoming potential of love—all laced in a fresh yet memorable slinky Spanglish beat infusion.

What Latin tracks will you be listening to on repeat this summer?  Let us know in the comments.
