Track three is where you kick it up a notch. Add some horns, upbeat vocals, and the tradition of America “discovering” Latin music every decade or so, and you have the smash hit of 1999. But don’t take our word for it: let’s have the writer of Livin’ La Vida Loca and a professor of Latinx studies explain Ricky Martin's importance! You’re living la vida loca if you don’t have this track on your mixtape.
