Some of the best Latin – Pop collaborations
You like Pop music, but you love Latin music. How about mixing the two genres? How about bringing together artists from two different scenes in a single, perfect formula that can sell millions of singles worldwide? Some of the best Latin Pop Collaborations are considered to be the following: Shakira & Alejandro Sanz, Thalia&Michael Buble, Juanes& Nelly Furtado.
What comes in your mind when you say “La Tortura”? We’ve all danced till the morning light on this song in 2005 and it’s still a good song to listen to. The song achieved immediate success and all the radio were playing it at that time. Behind this success is the Columbian singer- Shakira – and the Spanish singer – Alejandro Sanz. “La Tortura” it’s said to be the sixth most successful song in Shakira’s career, after: “Hips don’t lie”, “Whenever, Wherever”, “Underneath your clothes”, “She wolf”, “Waka, Waka”. The song was awarded with two Latin Grammy Awards for “The song of the year” and “The record of the year”. The song hit number one for 25 weeks.
Do you remember the TV show entitled “A Michael Buble Christmas”? It had been a special show, where the Grammy awarded singer, Michael Buble, enchanted the audience with his songs and duets. One of the featurings was with Thalia. The international star doesn’t need any introduction, as, at the moment, she is one of the best rated Mexican singers of all times. Michael Buble and Thalia recorded “Feliz Navidad” which made a fantastic Christmas night for all their fans.
Another Latin – Pop collaboration that brought success to both singers is Juanes ft Nelly Furtado. Juanes, another top Spanish artist is a twenty Latin Grammy award singer. In 2009 and 2013 he won two Grammy awards for “The Best Latin Pop Album”. He has recorded a duet with Nelly Furtado entitled “Fotografia”, a song for Juanes’ second album – Un dia Normal (2002). This collaboration was followed by another one, created for Nelly’s 2006 album, “Loose”. “Te busque” was a success, reaching number one in US Billboard Hot Latin Tracks.
