Filmed in Barcelona, this fun clip captures the Colombian pop star letting her hair fly in the wind while roller-skating on the beach and zooming around on a motorcycle in the Spanish city. Watch as she shakes her stuff in a pair of gold pleather pants only she can pull off.
Calle 13, “Calma Pueblo”
One thing’s for sure, the controversial Boricua duo know how to instigate a bit of controversy. This clip follows Residente, who appears dressed as a nun before removing the habit to reveal his upper-body strapped with bombs. As he rhymes about the Vatican as the home of the world’s biggest mafia, business folks around him disrobe in a show of solidarity.
Bruno Mars, "Just the Way You Are"
Puerto Rican–Filipino cutie Bruno Mars charmed us with this lovely song, dedicated to his perfect girl. The song is an adorable chance for Mars to showcase his now famous pipes. Apparently, we're not the only ones who fell in love with Mars this year, the video has more than 60 million times on YouTube!
Enrique Iglesias, “Cuando Me Enamoro”
A collaboration between Enrique Iglesias and Juan Luis Guerra, this sweet song is made even sweeter by its video. The two singers perform in a school auditorium while romance blooms between some of the children. Watch for a cameo by Ugly Betty’s Ana Ortiz.
This trippy video takes us on journey through the rain forest with Juanes, who sings about a mystical herbalist who knows how to cure all that ails you. The visuals are super cool, and this first single off of Juanes new album P.A.R.C.E. left us wanting more!
Julieta Venegas, “Bien o Mal”
The winner for Best Short Form Music Video at this year’s Latin Grammys, “Bien o Mal” is a dreamscape full of ethereal beauties eating flowers and happily farting in the countryside. The song asks the question, “Strange girls. Can they marry, have children, be happy?” If you ask new mom Venegas, the answer would probably be si.
“Bachata en Fukuoka,” Juan Luis Guerra
Charming in its simplicity, JLG’s tribute to his Japanese fans was shot in Los Angeles and centers around a woman who gets younger as she travels from the city to the beach in search of her true love. When she finds him, they can’t help but dance a bachata that sends them flying off like in modern-day martial arts flicks.
“1977,” Anita Tijoux
Chilean emcee Tijoux pays tribute to the year of her birth with this animated vid charting her birth in France during Pinochet’s dictatorship and eventual move back to Chile as a teen.
“I Like It,” Enrique Iglesias featuring Pitbull
If this song doesn’t make you want to go clubbing, we don’t know what will. To drive the point home, the video features the fist-pumping gang of The Jersey Shore, who sneak onto the set to help Miami boys Enrique and Pitbull get the crowd going.
Daddy Yankee, “Grito Mundial”
The reggaetonero’s ode to “the beautiful game” was shot in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, and features passionate fans, intricate soccer moves and capoeira dancers doing their thing. The message is universal: “Zero racism, zero egotism.”
