Listen to GRAMMY.com's Hispanic Heritage Month 2022 Playlist: Featuring Latin Music Hits & Classics From Anitta, Selena, Bad Bunny, Shakira & More

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, GRAMMY.com highlights the riveting, celebratory sounds of Latin music in a genre- and era-spanning playlist featuring iconic songs from Jennifer Lopez, Karol G, Maná, Marco Antonio Solís, and many more.

GRAMMYs/Sep 15, 2022 - 08:02 pm

Latin music isn't a genre — it's a culture. And 80 years of thriving Ibero-American sounds spanning across the Americas, the Caribbean, Spain, and Portugal are evidence of its ever-growing prominence. That's reflected in our 61-track playlist celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2022.

Unbeknownst to nearly no one, Latin music, in both the Hispanophone and Lusophone styles, exploded onto the global mainstream in the last five years. When Luis Fonsi's and Daddy Yankee's GRAMMY-nominated global hit "Despacito" broke the internet, the sound crossed into international borders — and markets — like never before. Today, Bad Bunny is one of the biggest stars on the planet, with his glorious, record-breaking, chart-topping, and hit-making streak still going strong.

Yet formidable contributions Stateside have continued since the golden age of boleros: New York's Mexican/Puerto Rican trio Los Panchos pioneered the romantic, nylon-driven ballad style in the '40s. In 1958, 17-year-old Ritchie Valens turned a son jarocho song into a rockabilly classic ("La Bamba"); Carlos Santana has played a key role in the evolution of Latin rock since Woodstock in the late-'60s; New York Latin troupe Fania All-Stars globalized salsa and Caribbean-rooted rhythms in the late '60s. Lest anyone forget Tejano icon Selena and her techno cumbia or the so-called "Latin explosion," led by Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Shakira, and Marc Anthony, both in the '90s.

Although reggaeton and música urbana superstars like Bad Bunny, J Balvin and Karol G continue to reign almighty on the global Latin pop scene, there is a growing number of promising, diverse voices within the Latin music soundscape bubbling up today. Honduran-born SoundCloud creator Isabella Lovestory is spearheading a provocative neo-reggaeton style of her own; Colombia's Ela Minus is giving her defiant electronic sound an exciting darkwave edge; and Mexican viral rapper Santa Fe Klan is resurrecting cumbia sonidera within the rap en español circuit.

The Latin beat goes on, and you can explore its ongoing sonic evolution in our Hispanic Heritage Month 2022 playlist on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Pandora. Playlist powered by GRAMMY U.

Watch Demi Lovato Sing The National Anthem At Super Bowl 2020

Following a touching performance at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards last month, the two-time GRAMMY nominee delivered a powerful rendition of the U.S. national anthem at the big game

GRAMMYs/Feb 3, 2020 - 04:56 am

Two-time GRAMMY nominee Demi Lovato is known for pouring her heart and soul into each of her songs and live shows, and her performance of the U.S. national anthem at Super Bowl 2020 today (Sunday, Feb. 2) was no different. 

Dressed in a stunning, all-white suit, Lovato took on the highly coveted slot with confidence, tackling the song's high notes and powerful vocal melodies with poise and aplomb. Lovato now joins previous GRAMMY winners like Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera and Carrie Underwood among the artists who have performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the big game.

In what may seem like a cosmic coincidence, Lovato, who was announced as a guest singer for the big game last month, actually predicted she would one day "sing the national anthem at a Super Bowl" in a tweet she posted on Feb. 7, 2010, nearly 10 years to the day when she finally accomplished that same feat. 

The Super Bowl show is the latest major performance for Lovato this year. Last month, she made her grand return to the stage when she delivered a touching performance of her new song, “Anyone,” at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. Her rendition, her first televised performance following a drug-related medical emergency in 2018, quickly became one of the most unforgettable moments from this year's GRAMMYs.

Other musical highlights from Super Bowl 2020 included a dazzling, star-studded halftime show from Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, which featured surprise performances from Bad Bunny and J Balvin, plus a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful" from four-time GRAMMY-winning gospel icon Yolanda Adams.
