As Latinos, we’re known around the world for our fiery passion, our heat and our music. It stands to reason then, that Latino singers and songwriters release some of the best love songs in history. Whether in Spanish or English, Latinos know how to say te amo better than most and on Valentine’s Day, it’s most appropriate to take advantage of our natural sex appeal and heat with Latino love songs.
To spice up Valentine’s Day this year, call upon some classics as well as some newer pop professions of amor and plan on singing along to some of the best Latino love songs.
Best Latino love songs
Selena Quintanilla’s, I Could Fall in Love is one of the most popular Latin love songs of all time. From her sweet voice to the genuine sentiment of the song (with a hint of sexiness if you’re listening carefully), we’re sold on this track being a solid standby any time of year but especially for someone hoping for romance on Valentine’s Day.
La Tortura by Shakira and Alejandro Sanz is hot, angry and what fantasies are made of. Perfect for belly dancing alone or grinding on a dance floor, this song positively sizzles with sex and the passion we’re known for.
Looking for a voice to melt a woman’s heart, turning it into a puddle of warm, gooey mush ready for loving? Anything by Juan Luis Guerra but especially, Burbujas de amor creates a soft, romantic mood for the holiday.
Luis Miguel is another romance standby but his spin on the Mexican classic, Si Nos Dejan is filled with sweetness, passion, and the masculine strength that only he can deliver.
Combining Enrique Iglesias’s sex appeal with the trusted stylings of Juan Luis Guerra, Cuando Me Enamoro is a song we all love to sing along to and be smitten by. If the song itself doesn’t do it for you, just imagine one of the steamy scenes from one of Enrique’s incredibly hot music videos.
A number one song in both the United States and Mexico, Latin Grammy winning rock band Camila’s track, Besame is a Latino love song that just feels good whether you’re with a special someone or singing along in the car.
The Spanish Pablo Alboran delivered an incredible breakout hit with his first, Solamente Tu, a classic love song with beautiful lyrics and a breathtaking melody. Best for when an intimate atmosphere is what you’re looking for.
Enrique Iglesias’s I Have Always Loved You is a sweet song with a melody you’ll be humming long after the Valentine’s Day magic is gone.
This, and every Valentine’s Day, be proud of your Latin roots and go nuts with some of the best Latin Love Songs of all time, old and new. Enjoy the natural romance, desire, and sexiness of our culture and make some magic of your own for Valentine’s Day this year!
