From musical collaborations to touring together and even performing at each others weddings, these artists have taken their professional relationships to another level. Read on for some of our favorite male bondings in Latin music and vote for your top pick.
Carlos Vives & Marc Anthony (pictured above):
After collaborating on the hit song “Cuando Nos Volvamos a Encontrar,” Vives and Anthony — two of the biggest Latin music names — joined forces to tour together last year with shows in 11 U.S. markets. The friendship is no recent fling. In fact, Vives sang at Marc Anthony and Shannon de Lima’s wedding in November 2014, dedicating love songs like “La Cañaguatera” and “Bailar Contigo” to the couple.
Pitbull & Enrique Iglesias:
Having teamed up on more than five hit singles, as well as touring together from 2014-15, it’s no secret that Pitbull and Iglesias are a dream-team pairing. From “I Like It” to “I’m a Freak” and their newest track “Messin’ Around,” Mr. Worldwide and the Spanish singer may have the ultimate bromance. “It’s been more than five years since I met Pitbull,” Iglesias wrote on Instagram. “We’ve become true friends. He’s a guy I truly admire and deserves nothing but the best. Proud to be part of this record with him.”
One of the newest bromances around town includes two of the hottest reggaetoneros in the game. The way that Balvin and Nicky Jam support each other’s careers definitely makes for some “BFF goals.” During the 2015 Latin Grammys, they celebrated their first wins together jumping and doing silly poses in front of the cameras. “J Balvin is like a kid, he has no bad intention in his heart, he’s very genuine. Ten years ago he said he wanted to be huge like Daddy Yankee and because he’s Colombian, people would laugh at him. Now it’s your turn,” wrote Jam on social media.
Manuel Mijares & Emmanuel:
The picture below gives us all the feels. Mijares and Emmanuel are the epitome of bromance! The Mexican singers have collaborated in songs such as “Sentirme Vivo,” “Chica De Humo,” “La Última Luna” and “Toda La Vida.” In 2015, they embarked on their Two’r Amigos tour, performing in Mexico and U.S. cities including Chicago, New York and Los Angeles.
Following collaborations on hit singles “Adrenalina” and “Que Se Sienta el Deseo,” Wisin joined Martin on his One World Tour as the opening act for big cities such as Miami and Chicago last October. Martin had previously recorded with Wisin when the reggaetonero was still part of the duo Wisin Y Yandel, featuring them on his song “Frío.”
