I’m about 5 months behind the rest of the world in learning about one of the contenders for song of the summer this year, “Despacito.” By now you’ve probably already scoured the internet to find out who the lead actress is (2006 Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera), so there’s really nothing new I can bring to you in that regard.
But in honor of Puerto Rico trying to become the 51st state, here’s a list of 51 or less “Spanish” songs that have been popular at one point or another in the US. Have any to add, let me know in the comments!
La Bamba – Ritchie Valens
Livin’ La Vida Loca – Ricky Martin
Macerana – Los Del Rio
Feliz Navidad – José Feliciano
I Adore Mi Amor – Color Me Badd
Conga – Gloria Estefan
Rico Suave – Gerardo
Bailando – Enrique Iglesias
Seven Spanish Angels – Willie Nelson
Santeria – Sumblime
Heaven – Los Lonely Boys
Granada – Luciano Pavarotti
No Tengo Dinero – Los Umbrellos
5 to 20 country songs about Mexico – country artists like George Strait or Toby Keith or Tim McGraw
