Don Omar – “Taboo” – (2010)

I love this song. “Lambada” is a song we’ll talk about next week in more detail, but needless to say this song borrows heavily from it. Even the video has elements of the “Lambada” video. “Lambada” itself was an unofficial (read: illegal) cover of an even older song but this song is much similar in nature to “Lambada” than the originator of this catchy, catchy tune. Add in the Latin/reggaeton vocals and a slightly up-tempo beat and you have the recipe for a winner. Throw in a gorgeous, tropical music video that will play in your head whenever you hear it and you have a killer summer song.
