With Father’s Day just around the corner on Sunday (June 16), Billboard put together a list of heartfelt dad-related Latin songs, ranging from regional Mexican to tropical to urban to pop. 

On the list is Ángela Aguilar’s “Tu Sangre en Mi Cuerpo” (Your Blood in My Body), in collaboration with her father Pepe Aguilar, where the talented pair interchange verses from a father who’s watching his little girl grow up before his eyes and a young lady who’s grateful for her father’s guidance. 

Ozuna’s “Mi Niña” (My Girl) also forms part of the list, a sweet urban-pop track where the Puerto Rican singer details what it’s like being the father to a beautiful girl. The reggaetón bop features voice notes from his daughter, reminding him how much she loves him. “So beautiful, I never imagined having someone like her/ So beautiful, I saw her be born, I also saw her grow up/ So beautiful, I never imagined having someone like/ So beautiful, she came out like her mother,” the Puerto Rican artist chants.

We also highlight Victor Manuelle’s “Algo Le Pasa A Héroe” (Something’s Wrong With My Hero), a nostalgic ballad dedicated to his father who suffered and passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2018. A new version dropped in 2020 and features Kany García, Tommy Torres, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Pedro Capó and Noel Schajris.

From Alejandro Sanz’s “Ese Que Me Dio La Vida” (That who gave me life) to Vicente Fernández’s  “El Hombre Que Más Te Amo,” and beyond, check out 20 songs you can dedicate to a father figure in your life on this special occasion.
