As summer draws to a close, Spotify has crunched the numbers to find out which song topped its global chart system for the summer of 2023. The streaming platform topped the chart, with 367 million streams this summer here, we find “Ella Baila Sola” by Eslabón Armado and Peso Pluma, the first Mexican regional song to top off a long list of firsts for the latest booming Latin genre.
The song is penned by rising stars Featherweight, 24, and quartet Armed Link, all also in their 20s. La Union made history as the first Mexican regional song to enter the top 10 on Billboard’s all-genre singles chart and was the first Mexican regional song to be featured on late night television when Peso Pluma made an appearance on ” The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.”
“Ella Baila Sola’ as the World Song of the Summer is a true confirmation of how Mexican Music is at the forefront of the international music scene, being one of the fastest growing genres in the world,” said Antonio Vázquez, Spotify Latino Editorial Manager in the United States. Música Mexicana, in general, offers a rich cultural tapestry that straddles tradition, emotion and modernity, making it accessible and exciting to both Latino and non-Hispanic music listeners. The strong appeal of this song shows the power of Mexican Music, proving that a moment in the sun is more than a moment.”
