Oh Gosh. Most of them suck haha, especially Ricardo Arjona, can't stand him. :evil: I don't like Latin Pop very much but there are some exceptions, let's see:

Belinda: nothing.
Thalía: nothing.
Paulina: even though her vocal strength is close to nothing :lol: she has a couple of good tracks: Lo Haré Por Ti, Y Yo Sigo Aquí and El Último Adiós (the official karaoke song here in my country haha).
Fanny Lu: nothing.
Anahí: NOTHING. Is this a joke?
Enrique Iglesias: Cuando Me Enamoro (nice song) and I Like It (so catchy, even though is autotuned to death). He is a very nice guy, quite funny but he has the vocal strength of a frog. :lol: Some of her 90s songs are classics but are painful to hear. :lol:
Dulce María: nothing, she has a nice voice wasted with silly songs.
Belanova: nothing.
Reik: NOTHING. Ewww.
Selena: nice girl, very unique. I don't like that kind of music but it's sad she died so soon. :(
Gloria Estefan: No Te Olvidaré (great ballad) and Más Allá (nice song, very famous during Christmas here in my country).
Pitbull: NOTHING!! Another joke? :lol:
Ricky Martin: Tu Recuerdo (I can't believe she put out a song like this, :o he really gained credibility with this song) and Lo Mejor De Mi Vida Eres Tú (nice song, very inspirational).
Laura Pausini: Entre Tú Y Mil Mares (amazing song, I love it), La Soledad (awe, it reminds me of the 90s :cry:) and Bienvenido (wow, what a powerful song :P).
Shakira: almost everything pre-crossover, all the singles from Pies Descalzos and ¿Dónde Están Los Ladrones? were amazing. I used to be a huge fan of hers back then. Some of my favorites: Inevitable (her best song IMO), Tú, Un Poco De Amor, Estoy Aquí, Suerte. Since Loba her music is a big joke IMO. :roll:
Juanes: Fíjate Bien (great song full of social protest :P), Es Por Ti, Nada, A Dios Le Pido. Unfortunately, he's another Colombian singer whose music is going downhill.
Miguel Bosé: only Si Tú No Vuelves. My God, a masterpiece.
La Mala Rodríguez: I have no idea who she is.
Don Omar: NOTHING. Third joke. :lol:
Christina Aguilera: Pero Me Acuerdo De Ti (one of the best vocal performances I have ever heard).
Jennifer Lopez: Una Noche Más.
Maná: Vivir Sin Aire, Te Lloré Un Río, Rayando El Sol, En El Muelle de San Blas, Ángel de Amor. Everything they have released since 2006 sucks.
Marc Anthony: I don't like his music (I hate salsa music) but I like his cover of Así Como Hoy.
Nelly Furtado: Te Busqué.
Ricardo Arjona: NOTHING!! He's the most overrated and annoying singer in Latin music history.
Julieta Venegas: nothing. Yawn.

Well, you know, besides the popular ones, I love Mala Rodriguez, she's la reina and her album "Dirty Baliarina" is the hotness!

Anahi's "Mi Delirio" and "Dividina" are nice ones. 8-)

LOL ... Jarr268, you surely don't like Spanish music AT ALL I see... Anahi is extremely popular, same with Don Omar (Danza Kuduro), just because the music is in Spanish doesn't automatically it is crap AT ALL...
They've all put out extremely popular songs.... Thalia, Juanes, Belanova, Paulina, etc, etc... they're all massive and the true representation of Latino music, if it wasn't for them we'd probably be listening to some Regional crap from Peru, I don't know ... lol :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

All in all, I'm very proud of pop music in Latin America :) !!

Shakirrrra!! I am absolutely in love with all of her Latin/bilingual albums. My favourite tracks are Estoy Aqui, Si Te Vas, Moscas en la Casa, Quiero, Te Dejo Madrid, Antes de la Seis and Devocion.

Also love Christina's Mi Reflejo record and Nelly's Mi Plan - 'Feliz Cumpleanos' is my favourite song from that album! :)

And selena would always be played in the car when my mom would try to learn spanish haha.

Well, you have no idea how many haters he has. :lol: For me, he's just an arrogant who thinks he is a poet and knows everything about love/life.

@jpguy Well, I'm sorry but some Latin artists including ANY reggaeton singer/duo/group have put out such crap music that makes Spanish music look really really bad. :roll: That's my opinion, there are some exceptions too. :wink: Plus, we are full of balladists who are extremely boring: Ricardo Montaner, Yuridia, etc, I swear I'd fall asleep in one of their concerts. :oops:

Back on topic, I loved the first two albums of Moenia, they had a very innovative sound with great lyrics and videos. Manto Estelar is a masterpiece. :wink:

Guys, check out these videos:
Manto Estelar - Moenia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dM5-SKBwkU

Me Quedaré Solo - Amistades Peligrosas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLvpPKWA_aM
A big hit from 1996. The composition is outstanding.

Es Por Ti - Cómplices: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQlxwUbL ... re=related
My favorite song in Spanish I guess. :P

I do have an idea :lol:
But I don't understand how he is arrogant - he has never come across as arrogant to me.

Guys, you HAVE to watch this video. It's a compilation of the most important (not necessarily the best of course lol) songs of the 90s in Spanish. I think it's pretty spot on. You should read the comments of every song, they're hilarious. Unfortunately some of the videos are not available due to copyright but you can find them on youtube.

-Vuela, Vuela was a HUGE hit. It was highly critized because the lyrics supposedly promoted drugs.
-Mi Media Naranja is a guilty pleasure for me haha, it reminds me of my childhood. "Tú mi complemento, mi media naranja, yo te quiero sin cruzar palabras, si esto no es un sueño, eres mi otra mitad, oh uh oh oh". :lol:
-Btw, Thalía exudes sex in that video (Amor a la Mexicana), my God. :o
