Latin America is one of the most diverse, beautiful regions in the world and Latin music is growing in international popularity. When asked to think of a Latina singer, the big names may come to mind, Shakira, J Lo, Camila Cabello, Selena Gomez. But there are so many others that are putting out amazing content worth listening to.

So if you're looking to spice up your summer playlist with some talented women, look no further! Here's an amazing Latina artist from almost every Latin American country.

1. Brazil - IZA

The music of Iza embodies the modern spirit of Brazil - a contemporary vibe with influences from pop and hip hop.

3. Colombia - Lido Pimienta

Colombia has so many powerful female singers: Shakira, Kali Uchis, Ventino, Elsa y Elmar, Bomba Estereo, Karol G. It's hard to pick just one to showcase, but you can't deny Lido Pimienta's power. The Polaris Prize-winning artist contrasts emotions with steel drums and electro-infused rhythms drawing from reggaeton, cumbia, and porro.

4. Argentina - Nathy Peluso

While Argentina is overflowing with talented female artists (think Cazzu), Peluso is really incomparable stylistically, with a mesh of R&B, hip-hop, trap, and more. She even has a song where she raps about her love for pizza. Relatable. Undeniably, la sandunguera tiene un sazón peculiar.
