The top of this post is a 25-minute documentary on cholitas luchadores, female luchadore wrestlers. While any individual frame may look deadly, if you click through to the videos, you can tell it’s pretty silly WWE-style choreographed wrestling. It’s a hoot.

And even if you don’t appreciate wrestling, I think we can all appreciate those hats.


(and yes, lucha libre is not women’s-only, as the first card indicates – I didn’t make the documentary.)

So, after some discourse™ about Yastin Biver and the remix of “despacito”, talking with other latines, i realized that gringxs feel like we need to “thank” their artists because they talked two sentences in one of our languages, meanwhile latine artist are killing everyone by just being talented af. I wanted to make a little post praising some (let’s be honest, if we list every latine that fits here, we will have a bible) of the latine artists that are fucking awesome in more than one language:

Better covers for “Despacito”: Tritom / Maxi Espindola and Agustín Bernasconi / Carolina García / Karen Méndez, Pablo Saavedra & Juacko / Boyce Avenue / J.Fla / Susan Prieto (bachata) / Gabi Luthai / Nix / Zhamira Zambrano / Santos & Ledes / Naju y Tute (pop rock) / LOS 5  (there’s a mix between spanish speakers and non-spanish speakers. I included the last ones because they at least know the lyrics of the song, even if their accents are not perfect :) )

There’s people that honestly believe that we don’t like the remix because we don’t like “gringxs” singing in our languges or because we don’t accept them because they have accents (arguments from gringxs. Like, en serio?) Anyways,i’m gonna share with you some non-latine artists that sang in our languages that are knew and loved in latinoamerica:

Extra: latin american version of other songs, because they are….better: shape of you* / thinking out loud* / the beast and the beauty (bachata)* / all of me* / love yourself* / despacito / paisaje / paisaje (cumbia) / je l'aime a mourir

*: means that they have more songs in that language.

If you are latine, please add more songs!
