Audiomack puts together a chart based on street buzz and commercial success, highlighting the songs coming out of Cuba that are moving music forward.
Welcome to Audiomack’s Top 20 Latin Charts. These specially curated charts exist to close the gap between commercial success and street buzz. Our hope is to showcase the music and artists truly moving music forward, that may not have the resources to take over traditional streams like radio. The countries chosen for these charts are countries that have core fan bases on Audiomack, as the platform is an excellent place to cultivate a strong and dedicated fan following. We pride ourselves on the Top 20 series, because radio success will not determine chart placement. We’re here for quality artists and quality music first, the numbers come second.
Featuring Jacob Forever, Chocolate MC, Chacal, and more Cuban artists moving music forward, this Top 20 is a who’s who of the Cuban music scene. With reggaeton hitmakers abound, the Cuban Top 20 is everything a fan of all Latinx genres needs as their primer to get into trap, reggaeton, dream pop, and more.
Artists like Jacob Forever and Chacal have been building longstanding careers in Cuba, with a series of hits to their names and the coveted household name recognition. For his part, Jacob Forever has been charting in the US since 2016.
There’s no better time to press play on this playlist, with the urbano genre crossing over like never before, and blooming, finally, in the states. American music fans no longer have an excuse to brush off non-English music.
