Let me start off this post by saying, I’m a full-blooded Latino who enjoys sports, video games, cigars and Eva Mendes (for her acting prowess, of course). With that said, it’s only right that my first full issue as Latina magazine’s entertainment editor was the “Hot Guys” issue. Right before accepting my position at Latina, I was at BET overseeing their music shows and specials content online (read: covering hip-hop and a few misogynistic rappers).

While traveling this weekend, I decided to browse my iPod playlists and landed on my favorite Latin pop section. To my amazement I heard songs that I haven't heard in forever, and loved every minute of my old school playlist.
One of the songs on my list is Enrique Iglesias’, "Miente" off of his album “Vivir.” I remember as a little girl kissing this album cover and singing this song to the top of my lungs! I really fell for his raspy voice and then of course the lyrics to the song.
