Ever wondered why there hasn’t been another Gloria Estefan, or another Shakira? We’re talking Latinas who have transcended huge barriers and gone on to become global phenoms? Sure, Enrique and Pitbull are having huge years, but what about the women? The Glorias and Shakiras seem to come around every eon—and according to Estefan, there’s a reason for that.

We continue to celebrate our ‘Gloria Estefan Week’ with the brand new music video for Gloria Estefan’s “WEPA”! The song is the first single off her new album Miss Little Havana, out now on iTunes and available in Target. Released yesterday, the “WEPA” music video is filled to the brim with energy, color, and dance numbers. The gorgeous 54-year-old doesn’t let the young dancers leave her behind either – Estefan busts out her own moves as well. We absolutely love the song here at Latina!

As part of ‘Gloria Estefan Week’ here at LATINA, we decided to do a song-by-song breakdown of her new dance album, Miss Little Havana, out September 27 (hard copy at Target, digital copy through iTunes).

When Marc and J.Lo split up, we were left with this huge void. Gone was our version of the royal couple. Just like that. The good news? We will always have Gloria and Emilio Estefan—our very own First Family!
