One of my favourite Mexican artists, and someone I’ve shoehorned into articles multiple times for the Culture Trip because I just love her so much, Julieta Venegas is criminally underrated in many musical markets despite years of consistent success in Latin America. Here are ten (narrowing them down was challenging to say the least) of my favourite Julieta Venegas songs, at least one of which I cried to when I saw her live in Mexico City. I’ll let you guess which one.
Technically not Julieta alone, but her former ska band Tijuana No!’s unequivocally most well-known track.
I once accidentally called this Sal y limón to Inti and I feel like he’s never forgotten about it.
From her latest album of the same name.
An enjoyably creepy video mixed with a less popular song.
Not to be confused with Despacito.
Featuring a very young looking Julieta.
One day, Cartel de Santa will appear live with Julieta to sing this song and I’ll be vindicated.
Because she looks bloody majestic in the video.
