Looking for some new music to add to your playlist? Check out these five Mexican pop songs that you need to know!

“Mia” – Bad Bunny

As the undisputed king of Spanish-language trap, Bad Bunny is one of the most popular artists in the world right now. His track “Mia” featuring Drake was a huge crossover hit, and it’s easy to see why. The infectious beat, catchy melodies, and Drake’s star power helped make it a global hit.

Bad Bunny is from Puerto Rico, but he often incorporates Mexican culture into his music. In “Mia,” he pays homage to Mexico’s iconic “Day of the Dead” holiday with the line “No me gusta Halloween, pero me encanta el Día de los Muertos.”

While “Mia” is definitely a party track, Bad Bunny also uses his platform to address social issues. He’s been an outspoken supporter of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and he often includes messages of equality and acceptance in his music.
