Hanna Nicole Perez Mosa and Ashley Grace Perez Mosa of Ha*Ash perform at Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Sept. 15, 2015 in Las Vegas. 

Given Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull's recent collaborations with country stars -- J.Lo featured in Jennifer Nettles' "My House" and Mr. Worldwide in Keith Urban's "Sun Don't Let Me Down" -- we couldn't help but come up with a wish list of other Latin acts that should record a country song. 

From Shakira to Ha*Ash and Enrique Iglesias, vote for which Latin superstar you think should go country next. 

Ha*Ash

The Mexican-based duo have already expressed to Billboard their love for country music and their dream of one day collaborating with artists like Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton or Rascal Flatts. Sisters Hannah and Ashley, who were born in Louisiana, have combined country rhythms to their pop and rock in songs like "Odio Amarte" and "Vaquera."

Shakira

Colombian singer/songwriter Shakira had splashes of country music in her songs "Se Quiere Se Mata" and "Te Espero Sentada" in her debut album Pies Descalzos. She has already tapped into the country genre when she released a duet with Blake Shelton titled "Medicine." This time around we're thinking women power anthem with say, Reba McEntire? 

La Santa Cecilia 

Lead singer Marisol Hernández's powerful vocals have proved that she can go from cumbia to ska to pop to R&B. Their song "Here We Go Again" has a norteño beat with country influences. We'd definitely love to hear more country from "La Marisoul"! 

Enrique Iglesias 

Listening to the first 30 seconds of Enrique Iglesias' "Duele el corazón" makes you wonder what the Spanish singer would sound like in a country record. Iglesias should take a cue from his BFF Pitbull and collab with a country artist next. 

Pepe Aquilar

Mexican charro Pepe Aguilar has tapped into pop, rock, ranchero and maricachi genres. Should country be next on his list?
