The 10 Best Latin Songs of 2014

We admit we love to dance. So we couldn't help but include tracks like “Bailando” and “6 A.M.” among our list of the best Latin songs of the year. But a little bit of rock, rap and, of course, love also made the cut. Read on for which singles had the most impact in 2014. (And see our list of the 10 best Latin albums here.)

The opener from Corazón exemplifies this set: Raw fusion that aims to be unabashedly fun.

8. " Soltero Disponible" - Regulo Caro
“Did you forget I paid the doctor to put that ass on you?” That line alone makes this song a must-listen.

7. "La Luz" - Juanes
Juanes went on a limb with this one, and succeeded in delivering a strong party track.

6. "El Aguante" - Calle 13
Militant and all, it’s still so well-written, one can’t resist listening to every word.

5. "Corazón En La Maleta" - Luis Fonsi
Fonsi went for uptempo pop instead of his signature ballad and won with this catchy, irresistible track.

4. "Empire" – Shakira
The singer's big rock ballad should have gotten far more play than it did.

3. "El Mar De Sus Ojos" - Carlos Vives feat. Choquibtown
Lovely, uplifting, fresh, innocent, and danceable, it's the perfect tropical/pop track.

2. "6 AM" - J Balvin feat. Farruko
“Pero que clase de rumba, pa-pa-pa.” (Translation: “What a dope party, pa-pa-pa.”) Yep, we’ve all been there, which is why we all love this song. 

1. "Bailando" - Enrique Iglesias feat. Descemer Bueno and Gente D’Zona
There’s a reason this song is close to hitting 30 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart. Irresistible.
