Latin Music USA

Hour 4: Divas & Superstars

Video duration: 54:21Video has closed captioning.

Focuses on the Latin Pop explosion of the turn of the century and the success of artists like Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan and Shakira in the English-language market. As studios concentrate on star-driven Pop, Latino youth gravitate toward urban fusions -- Spanish Rap and Reggaeton, as well as Rock en Espanol.
