Top 10 Mexican Party Songs

1. Alucin — Eugenio Esquivel, Grupo Marca Registrada, Sebastian Esquivel

Eugenio Esquivel and Sebastián Esquivel are revolutionizing Mexican music with their unique style, the electrocorrido, a catchy fusion of traditional regional rhythms and electronic music. The theme of hits like ‘Exceso’ or ‘Bagatelle’ revolves around partying (“la peda”, how it’s called in Mexico), vices, and having fun. Their iconic ‘Alucin’ alongside Marca Registrada has totally exploded in TikTok and can’t be absent from your playlist.

2. AMG — Natanael Cano, Peso Pluma, Gabito Ballesteros

‘AMG’ has become one of the corridos tumbados that have taken Natanael Cano and Peso Pluma to the top. Their explosive collaboration with Gabito Ballesteros achieved a big success in 2023, debuting at No. 93 on Billboard Hot 100, entering in the Lista LOS40 USA too. “AMG” refers to the car model Mercedes AMG, which represents a metaphor through which the young stars express all they have achieved. “What I dreamt one day, I have bought everything already”, they sing.

3. El Jefe — Shakira, Fuerza Regida

Shakira’s fans freaked out when they watched the Colombian diva singing and dancing to a regional Mexican song. ‘El Jefe,’ featuring Fuerza Regida, isn’t only a captivating hit with hard-hitting melodies, but also a protest. However, its melodies are ideal for a fiesta.

4. De Lunes a Lunes — Manuel Turizo, Grupo Frontera

In your Mexican party playlist you can’t miss a song about drinking to forget, which turns out to be a recurrent theme in the corridos. This vibrant junte from Grupo Frontera, with a style that revolves around the norteño cumbias, and the tropical vibes introduced by Colombian star Manuel Turizo, make ‘De Lunes a Lunes’ an essential song for heating up the environment.

5. El Gordo Trae El Mando — Chino Pacas

‘El Gordo Trae El Mando’ is one of the most catchy Mexican hits that you can listen to. This corrido bélico gets you with its melodic guitar and tololoche rhythms, accompanying the torn voice of Chino Pacas, one of the most prominent figures in the new wave of Mexican Music.
