Songs from 2014 from Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Becky G
SML/Latin Times

In 2024, a decade has swept past since the release of some of the most iconic songs in the Spanish-speaking music world and Latino artists, songs that defined a generation and etched themselves into the cultural tapestry of the Latino community, to the point that some of them are still popular, while others have become anthems or launched a new musical genre all by themselves.

Such is the case of "Bailando." Enrique Iglesias, Gente de Zona, and Descemer Bueno sparked the phenomenon of reggaeton pop with that song.

A very versatile year in Latin Music

In 2014, the music scene was awash with a range of rhythms and styles. From the romantic ballads of Camila's "Decidiste Dejarme" to the upbeat reggaeton beats of J. Balvin's "Ay Vamos," each song brought a unique flavor to the musical platter. The year was marked by an eclectic mix of genres, blending traditional Latino sounds with contemporary global influences, creating a soundscape that resonated with audiences worldwide.

Becky G's "Shower," released on April 23, 2014, is a prime example of this fusion. The song, with its catchy melody and relatable lyrics, captured the hearts of young audiences globally and became a defining track of the year. Then "Bailando," with its bilingual version featuring Sean Paul, Descemer Bueno, and Gente De Zona, became the biggest sensation worldwide, blending flamenco, reggaeton, and pop, showcasing the dynamic nature of Latino music.

Shakira's collaborations in 2014, "Can't Remember to Forget You" with Rihanna and "La La La (Brazil 2014)" featuring Carlinhos Brown, further emphasized the global appeal of Latino artists. These songs not only dominated the charts but also broke cultural barriers, highlighting the universal language of music.

Romeo Santos' "Odio" brought Drake to the allure of bachata, while Pitbull's "Fireball" and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk," featuring Bruno Mars, infused the year with high-energy party anthems.

As we look back at these songs and more, we are reminded of their significant contribution to the global music scene. Their 10th anniversary is not just a celebration of music but of cultural identity and diversity. As we celebrate this milestone, let's revisit these timeless classics and appreciate the rhythm, passion, and soul that make Latin musi an integral part of our world's cultural heritage.
