This summer Latin songs landed in the billboard list. While you were dancing or singing to the lyrics did you pay attention to what they were saying? Well, if you didn’t, below are the top nine songs, explained and rated. According to Latin Billboards these were the top 9 songs of Summer.


# 9: “Tu Foto” by Ozuna

The video for “Tu Foto” shows three different relationships. The first one is about a mother and her daughter, the second one is about a boyfriend and girlfriend and the third about son and little brother but all these relationships have something to do with addiction. It’s the addiction that has a negative impact in these families.  


#8:“Ahora Dice” Chris Jeday Presenta J Balvin, Ozuna & Arcangel

This song is about a couple that recently broke up. The woman pretends not to remember anything they did in their relationship and denies it all.


#7:“Chantaje” Shakira Ft. Maluma

Shakira sings about a relationship in which a man claims a woman has manipulated him and now people gossip about him. She denies it  and says  he is a liar.


#6: “Subeme La Radio” Enrique Iglesias Ft. Descemer Bueno, Zion & Lennox  Sean Paul

This song follows a guy that recently had a heart break and it’s trying to forget what he and she went through. It follows him through clubs and getting drunk to forget about her.

#2.“Mi Gente” J Balvin & Willy William

Mi Gente’ is a song that embodies a special moment in music, a new sound of a Latino culture on the rise and being embraced globally. By erasing barriers of races, colors, continents, genres or languages, we can achieve the whole world moving their head to the same beat.
