Top 10 Best Latin Singers

The Top Ten
1 Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian-Spanish singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

Shakira is beautiful, brilliant, and talented. No one in history has managed to mix so many cultures in music - Latin, American, African, Indian, Arabic, and probably more. She can dance like nobody else. She can speak many languages and started the Pies Descalzos organization for poor kids in Colombia. She is definitely an incredible singer and an amazing role model.

She is just amazing. When she gets up to sing, people listen, no matter what kind of person they are! She helps people and wants people to learn.

She is gorgeous and talented! She cares about almost all of her fans, and she should be number one and stay at number one! I LOVE SHAKIRA!

2 Enrique Iglesias Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler, known professionally as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish singer, songwriter, record producer and actor.

He is the king of Latin pop. He deserves to be number one. It was because of him that Latin songs began to gain audiences in the States and the rest of the world, which otherwise would have been confined to Spanish-speaking countries. His pioneering work exposed Latin artists to the rest of the world. He began working with well-known American pop artists, making American and Latin collaborations popular and well acknowledged by Americans and the rest of the world.

Through these collaborations, Latin songs and genres gained global exposure. His song "Bailando" was a massive hit and garnered over 2 billion views on YouTube when it was released, paving the way for future Latin songs to hit the markets and YouTube. His contributions to the Latin pop industry are unparalleled.

3 Selena Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

Selena is definitely the best Latin singer of all time. She not only crossed over into the English language but also into a variety of other cultures. Not many singers can successfully influence a variety of cultures, especially if the majority of us don't understand what she is saying.

Her voice is beautiful, and it is because of that voice and her passionate emotions that she instills when she sings that we Samoans love her. For someone who passed away eighteen years ago, the people of the Pacific Islands still remember this amazing singer. RIP Selena. Your music and legacy will live on forever through the hearts of those you have blessed with your talent.

4 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

Jennifer Lopez was relevant in the music business for 20 years (1999-2019) and released many hits. These include "If You Had My Love" and "Waiting for Tonight" (1999), "Let's Get Loud," "Love Don't Cost a Thing" (2000), "I'm Real," "Ain't It Funny" (2001), "Jenny from the Block" (2002), "Get Right" (2005), "Control Myself" (2006), "On the Floor," "I'm Into You," "Papi" (2011), "Dance Again" (2012), "Booty," "Adrenaline," "We Are One (Ole Ola)" (2014), "Ain't Your Mama" (2016), and "Dinero" (2018).

She has a significant collection of non-single songs, including "Frozen Moments," "Mouth to Mouth," "Should've Never," "Physical," "Greatest Part of Me," "Step into My World," "Come Over," "Walking on Sunshine," and so on.

After these 20 successful years, she can calmly go into retirement. She's 50. Let's not pretend. All musicians after 50 lose "that something" and stop being relevant, unfortunately. I'll be her fan forever, anyway.

5 Thalia Ariadna Thalía Sodi Miranda, known mononymously as Thalía, is a Mexican singer and actress. She is referred to as the "Queen of Latin Pop" and is considered one of the most successful and influential Mexican artists.

She's iconic. A true Latina legend who had her global crossover singing in Spanish. She was always loyal to her roots. She's a chameleon and can support a huge variety of music genres. Talented, charismatic with an angel's voice and amazing beauty, she's been on top for over 30 years. Countless hits and an idol for millions across the world. The absolute Latin Queen!

Thalia is definitely one of the best Latin artists, if not the best. Her soap operas have been watched all around the world, making her the queen of soap operas.

Also, Thalia has sold more than 30 million albums. Thalia has been around with success before JLo and Shakira too!

6 Gloria Estefan Gloria Estefan is a Cuban singer who currently resides in the United States. She is known for fronting the Latin pop band Miami Sound Machine and for several solo songs.

An exquisitely beautiful lady, with a truly wonderful voice. One of my all-time mega favorites, Gloria is awesome!

Me too. At least she was not half-naked. Always a nice presentation and what a voice. Thank you, Gloria.

We love Gloria Estefan! And she is numero uno in my eyes! From Conga to Wepa, she brings it every time! Her talent is like no other, just amazing.

7 Paulina Rubio

The spotlight hasn't stopped shining on her since she came into this world. Paulina Rubio, also known as The Golden Girl or La Chica Dorada, is Mexico's pride and joy as their first star to crossover into the pop frontier. She stands out in the crowd because her genre-defying music is daring, brave, and adventurous, which is unfortunately very hard to find these days.

Better than Shakira, but doesn't have those curves! Also, she is a rock star of drugs and nightlife!

8 Alejandro Sanz

His iconic duet with Shakira in 2005, "La Tortura," is one of the catchiest, most soulful songs ever. His raspy voice is so distinctive and wonderful to listen to!

I love Alejandro Sanz! Though I don't speak fluent Spanish, I do speak some and understand more. I love his music, and he is sexy.

Best lyrics. Maybe that's why he's not in first place. You don't really understand the lyrics in the songs, but he is amazing.

9 Vicente Fernandez

I think Vicente is wonderful. He has a fantastic voice, and everything he sings is great.

Clearly, if you don't vote for Vicente, you just don't know what Latin music is.

He's a legend that defines Latino culture. The king of Rancheras. What more can I say?

10 Laura Pausini

Laura has a very powerful voice. Everyone knows that she has a unique timbre and a very special way of performing songs. I think she should be in first place on this top ten.

Laura Pausini has the very best voice without question. I think Shakira gets a lot of attention because she is hot looking. Laura is a very beautiful girl as well.

Laura Pausini has the very best voice without question. She is, to be honest, perhaps the artist who has sold more records in Spain, known by all, for almost twenty years.

The Contenders
11 Ricky Martin Enrique Martín Morales, commonly known as Ricky Martin, is a Puerto Rican singer, actor and author who is widely regarded as the king of Latin Pop. Martin began his career at age 12 with the all-boy pop group Menudo. After five years with the group, he released several Spanish-language solo albums... read more

Ricky Martin is the best Latin singer ever. He has achieved two Grammy awards, sold 85 million albums, and has a number one album on Billboard 200 (which Shakira and Enrique don't) and a number one song on Billboard Hot 100. He is also one of the most influential Latin artists, introducing Latin pop to America with his great performance at the Grammys in 1999 and his crossover to English, which made his album Ricky Martin sell more than 22 million copies worldwide. Who else has this successful career in Latin music? No one! He is the best, and there's no doubt about it.

12 Santana Carlos Santana is a Mexican and American musician who first became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American jazz.

His music made me a lot of money, keeping my mind active while fixing computer problems at night. This was especially true when I was on call for the 4-12 and 12-8 shifts. I love him and his music.

13 Jose Feliciano José Montserrate Feliciano García (born September 10, 1945), better known simply as José Feliciano, is a Puerto Rican virtuoso guitarist, singer, and composer.

He has worldwide hits in English, Spanish, Italian, and even Portuguese. He can sing different times, music genres, and rhythms. He must be on top of the list for his extremely long career and powerful voice. I understand new generations don't recognize his influence and his collaborations with others in the music business. His name means music.

From boleros to soft rock ballads, salsa, bachata, vallenato, and classical music, there is no music genre he won't be able to master with his own trademark. He even translated some contemporary ballads from English to Spanish with the best dedication, sounding even better than the originals.

14 Don Omar
15 Juanes

He should be number five or higher. I love all his songs. My favorite song is Me Enamora. He has the best Spanish accent, and I can understand him better than any other singer. I would rather listen to him than an English artist. He is very attractive too. I listen to him most of the time if I get to listen to music throughout the day. I listened to him this morning while I was cleaning the house. Love him and his music!

He's not like one of those Latin pop singers who want to be like American rock singers. He's Colombian and proud, and his music is STILL amazing.

16 Juan Luis Guerra

Fantastic voice. He will always be a classic, yet still manages to surprise us and blow us away with each new track.

He captures all audiences - young and old. His talent is recognizable by all ages. His music makes you want to move and makes even the worst days shine with positivity.

This man is very humble and genuine. A true pride of the Dominican Republic, he is a respectable singer. His words have great meaning in the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.

He writes such beautiful music. Whether love songs or political songs, no one in Latin or any other genre has such depth and breadth of feeling in both lyric and melody.

17 Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants", and... read more

The best voice in the world! So much raw passion, emotion, pain, joy, and dedication in one instrument! She truly is the best vocalist in the world.

Undoubtedly, one of the best voices in the world next to Adele. She can do anything with her voice! She is absolutely phenomenal!

18 Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "It Ain't Me". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

She's an excellent singer, not to mention an excellent actress, dancer, and overall amazing performer and entertainer. She has an excellent fan base, which is why her new single "Come & Get It" is 2x Platinum, and her new album "Stars Dance," which is also her first solo debut album, has reached number one in 28 different countries.

She sang the song 'Who Said' in Spanish but she is American and Latina.

She is a very good singer, named after the late great Selena. This Latina will have her place as great too.

19 Julio Iglesias Julio José Iglesias de la Cueva is a Spanish singer and songwriter. In 1983, he was celebrated as having recorded songs in the most languages in the world, and in 2013 for being the Latin artist with the most records sold in history.

Not only has he sold more albums than any of the singers on this list, but he is also more popular worldwide. Everyone knows who Julio Iglesias is. With his record, shouldn't he be number one?

Julio is definitely the most recognized international artist of all time!

He is the father of Enrique and is known internationally.

20 Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

Pitbull should be up in the Top 10! You rarely hear a Latin song that he isn't on, and he's worked with everyone!

Paulina Rubio can't be better than this guy. Are you kidding me? He is the best Latino rapper in the world.

He has great music to listen to, and it's the kind of music that makes you want to dance.

21 Jenni Rivera

Jenni Rivera, you guys, is whopping some butt! She should not be in the 20s. She deserves to be in the top 10!

22 Natalia Oreiro
23 Celia Cruz

Her voice is strong and entertaining. Shocked she is not further up on the list. What a dear treasure.

She's the queen of Latin music. Period. No argument. Her vocals slaughter all other Latin singers.

24 Nelly Furtado Nelly Kim Furtado is a Canadian singer and songwriter. She has sold 20 million albums worldwide and more than 20 million singles, bringing her total sales to over 40 million records around the world.

Share inner beauty! I have so many comments to share, but who are we?

25 Luis Miguel

This incredible man should be at the top of the list. Better yet, he should be the top male singer alive. There's no comparison! This is obviously not the most reputable list, or else why would Shakira, Ricky Martin, and Enrique Iglesias, among others, be before him? What?! Alejandro Sanz, who is above him on this list, has said it himself: "Luis Miguel is the greatest singer in the world." Just because he never crossed over (never needed to) and is a private person should not be a reason not to vote for him!

When I see this chart, I wonder if people actually know what a "singer" means. Regardless of whether you like or dislike his music, Luis Miguel is the best singer of all. Not to mention, many on these charts are not true singers at all. Many of them cannot sing live whatsoever, therefore they're not singers. As the great Elton John put it, lip-syncing is not singing, no matter how well you move on stage.

By the way, he has more than 300 platinum discs. Multiply that by 1,000,000.
