Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo, which translates to the “Fifth of May” in English. Cinco De Mayo is an important Mexican civic holiday which honors the Mexican Army’s victory over French occupation and is celebrated by people all over the United States with a lot of margarita drinking, enchilada noshing, and pinata smashing.
Even though these songs aren’t necessarily all Mexican, if you are having a Cinco De Mayo party tomorrow (or it’s just a party of one with you and a couple tequila shots), these Ten Latin-Infused Pop Songs will be the perfect soundtrack to your Cinco De Mayo fiesta!
10. “Bailamos”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Enrique Iglesias[/lastfm]
One of the original stars of the ’90s Latin pop craze, Enrique Iglesias is still bringing the caliente dance jams, albeit sans mole. We guess when he sang, “?Bailamos! – We Dance/Let the rhythm take you over…/?Bailamos!/Te quiero amor mio – I want you, my love/?Bailamos! /Wanna live this night forever…/?Bailamos!” he wasn’t kidding.
He really is having a steamy dance party for the rest of his life. Where’s our invite, Enrique?
