The Top 10 Best Zumba Songs

Zumba is fabulous, but all Zumba-lovers know that it's even more fun with just the right music. Below, you will find a list of my personal favorite songs to dance Zumba to. Below each song, I've included commentary about what the song is like and why I think it's so great.

I think that all of these songs are really great and a lot of fun and make you feel healthy and sexy! Some were created specifically for Zumba by Beto Perez, the founder of Zumba Fitness and either sung by him or feature him, which makes those videos extra fun to watch. Other songs were written by other artists outside of Zumba Fitness, and then had Zumba routines created for them.

The videos are in alphabetical order just because I can't decide which song I like best!


PS. If you're a guy (or have a guy in mind) that wants to start Zumba but isn't sure, check out this link on reasons why men should Zumba. Also, I've included links to lists of my Top 10 Best Merengue, Bachata, Cha-cha and Salsa songs. If you know other Latin dances, such as salsa or bachata, you'll find a bunch of fun links to other articles that I wrote about Latin dancing if you want to expand your dance repertoire! There's also ton of helpful information about salsa dancing if you want to get started and learn how to dance it for real!

"La Bicicleta" by Shakira and Carlos Vives

I love the song "La Bicicleta" by Shakira and Carlos Vives because it has an addicting beat that makes it fun and easy to dance to, without feeling like you're trying too hard. Usually, we start out Zumba class with this song as a warm up, or play it when we want to take a break and take it down a notch mid-class, without compromising on excitement.

"La Bicicleta" by Carlos Vives & Shakira

"Chantaje" by Shakira ft. Maluma

The song name "Chantaje" translates to "blackmail" in English. What I love about this song is that it's very sexy and sensual and is very easy to incorporate seductive dance moves into the choreography if you want to, so you can feel as sexy and tempting as Shakira! I use this song to practice my Shakira-style body isolations and body rolls. But even if you're just listening to this song, you'll still enjoy it very much.

"Hasta Abajo" by Yandel

This song is about getting low and has a good beat that really helps me get into it and really emphasize all of my moves. Also, I like how it goes slow and fast so there's variety to it. This is a good leg workout if your Zumba instructor has you go down "hasta abajo."

"Follow the Leader" by Wisin and Yandel ft. Jennifer Lopez

I'll admit that I had no idea what the song was saying when I danced to it in class until I came home and found the lyrics online because it's kind of hard to tell, but anyway, it's a really fun song to Zumba to! I love the "ole, ole, ole!" and jumping around to it. This song always gets me pumped and excited about Zumba whenever I hear it in class!

"Follow the Leader" by Wisin and Yandel ft. Jennifer Lopez

"Limbo" by Daddy Yankee

I love this song because it's fun and energetic. I like how it starts out with those wooden chimes or whatever they are, because that gives it a really exotic feel.

If you speak Spanish, you'll notice that he talks about dancing under the sun, which always warms me up and reminds me of being on vacation at the beach.

"La Mordidita" by Ricky Martin

"La Mordidita" by Ricky Martin is a really great Zumba song because it has an awesome catchy beat and playful, flirty lyrics. For those of you who don't speak Spanish, "Mordidita" means "little bite," so it's a little kinky in a fun, cute way. I found a video of really great Zumba choreography for this song, done by two guys, which I have included below.

"More Than Friends" by Inna ft. Daddy Yankee

I love this song because it's a lot of fun to dance to and sing along with, and brings out this playful fantasy of getting to be "more than friends" with that "special" friend. It's very light-hearted and easy to follow along with dancing.

"More than Friends" by Inna feat. Daddy Yankee

"Moviendo Caderas" by Yandel

"Moviendo Caderas" by Yandel featuring Daddy Yankee is one of my favorite songs to Zumba to. I really love the routine that my instructor does in our class, but so far I haven't been able to find it reproduced anywhere online :/

Still, this song always gets me really pumped and excited about dancing Zumba, and if I feel myself starting to lag behind in class, this song really energizes me.

I included the original video, as well as a choregraphed Zumba one. The video depicts what appears to be a professional Zumba performance group so they dance it really well. I'm frustrated about the dangling camera in the corner of the screen, but otherwise it's really good. I unfortunately was not able to find the original music video for this song, so I don't think one has been created yet.

Share this song with your Zumba instructor and hopefully come up with an equally fun and exciting Zumba fitness workout routine!! :D

"Que Viva la Vida" by Wisin

This song always puts me in a good mood and is a lot of fun because he's telling you to just go and live your life and keep the party going. Lots of good energy here! It's all about celebrating life and enjoying yourself. The beat is really good and keeps you focused and motivated.

"Quiero Bailar (All Through the Night)" by 3BallMTY ft. Becky G

"Quiero Bailar (All Through the Night)" by 3BallMTY ft. Becky G is a a great Zumba song because of the beat that keeps you bouncing and moving throughout the song and keeps you motivated. I also love the Spanglish lyrics that are all about dancing and getting sexy. I love dancing to this song, even when I'm not in the Zumba room, haha.

"Quiero Bailar (All Through the Night)" by 3BallMTY ft. Becky G

"Zumba" by Don Omar

This is probably my favorite Zumba song ever because it's just so fun and exciting and brings all the passion of Zumba to life.

I also love how Beto is the one dancing it! I think that the choreography is cool and I like its variety, how it moves through all of the different moves.

If this song doesn't get you excited about Zumba, nothing will!
