Julio: "La niña de la escuela", Lola Índigo, Belinda y Tini
In July, Lola Indigo, Belinda, and Tini made us dance to the theme "La niña de la escuela." Dedicated to those people who ignored us at that stage of our lives, this song has positioned itself in the first places of reproductions since it has exceeded more than 125 million reproductions, this only through the YouTube platform, without counting other streaming platforms.
August: "Pepas", Farruko
It is inevitable not to raise your arms to the rhythm of this song. The Puerto Rican singer-songwriter and rapper Carlos Efrén Reyes Rosado, better known as Farruko, presented us in August the song “Pepas”. The theme has become popular in nightclubs and has more than 261 million views on YouTube. "Pepa y agua pa´la seca. To´ el mundo en pastilla´ en la discoteca" has become an anthem.
September: "Sejodiotó", Karol G
Winner of the Latin Grammy 2021 for best reggaeton performance for the song “Bichota”. The Colombian singer Carolina Giraldo Navarro, better known as Karol G, presented us in September the song "Sejodioto" which became a success. With songs like “Tusa”, the also composer, has positioned herself as one of the most successful singers in recent years. With 64 million views for the video of this song, Karol G makes it clear who is the queen of streaming.
October: "Indigo", Camilo and Evaluna
It was with this song that the singer Camilo and his wife, also the singer and actress, Evaluna Montaner announced the news that they were going to become parents. Camilo has established himself as one of the most successful artists and this song is no exception, reaching more than 105 million views so far through the YouTube platform.
November: "Desesperados", Rauw Alejandro and Chencho Corleone
It's no surprise that one of the most listened to and most successful artists of the moment is Rauw Alejandro. The singer, dancer and music producer has consecrated his career with different collaborations. It was at the end of November that the song “Desesperados” in collaboration with Chencho Corleone, became a success on the different streaming platforms. Only on YouTube has it reached the first place in musical trends, achieving 21 million views in the first days of its premiere. The Puerto Rican Rauw, without a doubt, has become one of the great exponents of reggaetón.
December: "Cada quien", Maluma and Grupo Firme
Last but not least. We close the year with a flourish. One of the collaborations that we did not see coming, "Cada quien" performed by Grupo Firme and Maluma. Released in the first days of December, the song has positioned itself at number three in YouTube music trends, reaching 18 million views.
