Latin Dance Songs

1. Suavemente – Elvis Crespo
1998, Suavemente
This is arguably the greatest Spanish wedding dance of all-time. It has a super energetic beat and vibe to it that makes it perfect for any wedding dance party. This is the #1 most requested dance song for every Latin wedding that I DJ at and is almost always requested at non-Latin weddings as well. This Merengue song has been the king of the Latin wedding dance floor since it was released way back in 1998.

2. Danza Kuduro – Don Omar & Lucenzo
2010, Meet The Orphans
Like “Suavemente”, this infectious dance monster is an extremely popular song at Latin weddings. Originally released in 2010, this song is a guaranteed dance floor filler. Fun fact: this song has over 1 billion views on Youtube!

3. Despacito – Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Justin Bieber
2017, Vida
This crossover smash hit was the biggest wedding dance song of 2017. You literally couldn’t go to a wedding that year (and even still) and not hear this song played at least twice. It’s has a medium-paced reggaetón beat which works super well on the dance floor. Justin Bieber’s addition to this song really helped catapult it to epic heights and made it even more appealing to non-Latin wedding crowds as well.

4. La Chona – Los Tucanes De Tijuana
1995, Me Robaste El Corazón
This song is my secret weapon when I need a song to wake a crowd up. “La Chona” is one of those songs that will give the crowd a second wind if they need it. It has a fast beat that people love to dance to. Fun fact: This Mexican band has performed at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and Central Park in New York City.

5. La Vida Es Un Carnaval – Celia Cruz
1998, Mi Vida Es Cantar
This classic Spanish song is still very popular for the older crowd at Latin Weddings. “La Vida Es Un Carnaval” is an all-time great Latin dance song. You can never go wrong with playing this one.

6. Mesa Que Mas Aplauda – Grupo Climax
2004, Za Za Za
This super-fast-paced Merengue song is a highly requested song that I play at Latin weddings. This song is also known as “Za Za Za” for its catchy hook. Although it was released back in 2004, it still sounds fresh at weddings today and never gets old.

7. Vivir Mi Vida – Marc Anthony
2013, 3.0
This track by Marc Anthony helped him win a Latin Grammy award back in 2013 when it was released. Fun Fact: This song is actually a cover version of a European song called “C’est La Vie” by Khaled. The original track came out in 2012 and is a bilingual song featuring Arabic and French vocals. Both the original and Marc Anthony versions are massive songs that get played at weddings around the world.
