My new podcast called Teatime with Pelumi talks about a wide range of subjects that will be interesting to listeners all over the world. In this episode, I talk about my Top 5Spanish songs of the decade. Spanish artists over the last decade have become mainstream and known all over the world.
Shakira, Jlo, and J Balvin headlined the Suber Bowl 43 becoming the first Latin artist to do so. This shows how widely accepted Spanish music has become.
1. Bailando Enrique Iglesias, Descemer and Gente de Zona
Bailando was critically acclaimed by music experts. Enrique Iglesias’s use of Flamengo’s sound was incredible. I remember the first time I listened to the song it reminded me of my first love. Bailando is a song about the one person always keeps you dancing no matter the situation.
2. Me Rehuso Danny Ocean
Me Rehuso is the song I play anytime I have a road trip with someone. It’s my carpool Karaoke song. The audio of the song has 1.4 Billion views on Youtube. Danny Ocean pours his heart into the song which is telling in the lyrics.
3. Despacito Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee
Despacito is one of the most remarkable songs ever released this decade. The music video still holds to record for most views on Youtube. I remember the first time I listened to the song, I had no idea what Luis Fonsi was saying but I still loved it, it was like I was touched by Fonsi’s voice.
4.Mia Bad Bunny and Drake
Bad Bunny and Drake’s collaboration was a shocker to all music lovers .I loved the fact that Drake sang in Spanish it was really lovely.
5. Malamente Rosalia
The first time I listened to this song was in the hit Netflix show Elite, where it was the theme song for the show. This was the start of unprecedented success for Spanish artist Rosalia.
