Despite what some Americans think, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's equivalent to Independence Day (that would be September 16). In fact, Cinco is a Mexican-American holiday, an opportunity for people to celebrate Mexican heritage—whether that's your own background or just a culture you love and respect.
We've rounded up incredible songs from newcomers such as Sofia Reyes and 3BallMTY as well as late greats like Jenni Rivera to celebrate this year's Cinco. Because what better way to get down than with 30 tracks from artists like Belinda (above), Julión Alvarez, Paulina Rubio, Maná and more?
Listen below. ¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo todos!
