“La Morbidity” means “a little bite” in English, so it makes it even more tempting. “Was surprised to see that the one who sang this song was a young girl.
I always attend my Sunday Zumba dancing and I always hear this song. Such a wonderful song, thanks to the awesome beat, which provokes and motivates us.
So let’s dump the workout and have some fun dancing away to the tunes of the most popular Zumbasongs. Believe me, you will feel like you’ve been partying while burning out those extra calories.
Scroll down to find out the top 10 songs to dance to. The term ‘ Zumba was derived from a Colombian word, meaning ‘to move fast while having fun’ or ‘buzz like a bee’.
Dance is an effective and a great form of exercise. Imbalance was created by a Colombian dancer and choreographer, Alberto “Beta” Perez, in the mid-90s.
He forgot to bring his music tape to the aerobics class that he was teaching in. He rushed back to his car and found a tape of Latin dance music.
He mixed the Latin dance forms like salsa, merengue, rumba, cha-cha, cumbia, mambo, flamenco, reggaeton, hip hop, bhangra, and tango and created what is widely known as Zumba. He then along with some entrepreneurs branded the class and transformed it into an eminent global franchise that is today called Zumba Fitness.
This song is all about living and enjoying your life to the fullest. It tells you to live a long life and keep the party going.
It is one of the main songs of the video game Zumba Fitness Core. Beta Perez’s choreography is enticing and takes you through various moves.
From warm up to cool down, from salsa to merengue to popular, discover my favorite+ bestZumbasongs playlist and YouTube workout videos! If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know I care about food as much as about fitness.
I also love running, cycling and sometimes squash, although I haven’t played it in ages now. (I put a paragraph break there just so if you don’t read this, you think it’s all a well edited body of text, whereas I just put it there randomly in the middle of my nonstop prose.
The Time (Dirty Bit) by Black Eyed Peas is my favorite Zumba warm-up song ever, and it’s fun and peppy! I love following it with a Salsa song, and then something pop, like Sexy and I Know It (LMAO) and Mr. Sailboat (Alexandra Stan).
I also love Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough (Michael Jackson). My favorite Zumba cool-down song is Beautiful Flower by India Are.

Following up on her 2018 album Awake, this year the Australian producer gifted the world Peace, ” a melodic anthem that digs into that delicate, but empowering feeling of recovery. Though Alison Wonderland has sung on much of her own discography, her recent releases have begun to feature her vocals more prominently, and rightly so.
She might be one of a few artists able to easily jump from playing the Tomorrowland main stage to sitting down for a stripped back acoustic version of her track of the year. Interstellar synth lines glitter over soulful piano chords, lone guitar wails and driving bass rhythms, while Amtrak grabs the mic to deliver an infectious vocal designed in the style of a sample.
“Between The Lines” is the first single from Amtrak's forthcoming sophomore LP Odyssey, which he says will include more vocal-driven dance -pop, with a myriad of vibes from indie, post-rock and heavy electronics. Completed from a MIDI file left behind by the late producer, “S.O.S” is the crown jewel of Avicii’s posthumous third studio album.
Featuring the luscious vocals of soul singer Aloe Black, the lead single off Tim sounds a lot like an invitation to come out of the darkness and into the light. Though softened by Avicii’s signature upbeat harmonies and a pop-leaning hook, “S.O.S” will stand as a lasting reminder that there’s sometimes more to a song than meets the ear.
The London-based producer has kept up his signature moves -- the dusty shuffling, spectral voices and hangar-sized echo -- while swerving into clubber territory. While “State Forest” is pure atmosphere, “Castro” jostles you to the dance floor, its UK garage beat and stretched R&B sample racing to the finish line.
Camelot and Jake Bug collab “Be Someone” is full of sexy, rolling baselines, haunting melodies and reverberating vocals. Built around a sample from Gloria Barnes’ 1970s deep cut of the same name, “Home” foregrounds Saith’s sensitive vocals in a composition that sits outside any trends of the moment.
Its rich horns and spinning rhythm appeared as a welcome balm in October, proving Caribou can find a home in any year. The duo clocked a major hit this year with “Takeaway,” a collab with vocalist Lennon Stella and electronic phenom Millennium.
The Forbes list's top earning DJs of 2019 further blurred the line between dance and pop with the track, a lovelorn ballad that served as a highlight of their major World War Joy tour this year. A space-rave Soul Train complete with cherubic bells, a vocal sample from a 1968 dial-a-poem phone service and a devastatingly beautiful breakdown, it’s no surprise that the song is up for best dance recording at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
This past summer, French connection David Quetta and Martin Solvay offered this latter option with “Thing For You,” a simply delightful house/pop earworm about the trials and tribulations of crushing hard. Dipso took a hard right into house this year with the launch of his genre-oriented Higher Ground label and the imprint's first release, a four-track EP of the same name.
In 2012, Skrillex and Boys Noise came together to create a digital-analog hybrid that banged harder, got weirder and grooved gnarlier than anything else on the market. “Break Law” is the EP's intro tune, a stunning and cinematic opener that builds suspense and sets the tone for the journey ahead.
A minute-long build sampling “Sona” from the 1998 Bollywood film Major Saab crashes into a menacing mechanical break, then descends into a trunk-thumping onslaught of attitude with a sample of Queen Latifah's 1989 cut Dance For Me.” It's a downright evil beat for Barfs around the world, and it deserves to be played on wonderful speakers, very loudly. Perhaps channeling Gloria Gay nor, the reigning queen of kiss-offs dropped a late-year Ian Kirkpatrick-produced mirror ball grenade on the world’s discos, making it clear that she is unapologetically “so moved on its scary.” Tossing out the chorus of “walk away, you know how,” like she’s casually throwing out daggers, “Don’t Start Now” is the sound of a woman who knows how to play her strengths and give her audience what they want.
While maintaining his status as a headliner across top festivals and playing around the world, Fisher released another defining tune of the year, with 2019’s You Little Beauty.” Starting with a fiery vocal sample from disco diva Loretta Holloway, Fisher added a big baseline and a tried-and-true 4×4 kick, continuing the tech house reign with the irresistible tune. The icing on the cake is in its name: “You Little Beauty” is a slang phrase encapsulating a righteous good time, taken straight from Fisher’s native Gold Coast.
Over the course of a carefully paced five minutes, Floating Points bolts static-y snares, bleeps and bloops and a frenetic clap rhythm into a jagged trance anthem. Floating Points described his second album, Crush, as “some of the most obtuse and aggressive music I’ve ever made.” The LP’s lead single, “Last Bloom,” is by no means aggressive, but its atmospheric, almost sentient sound design hints at a wild ecosystem unfurling beneath the rippling surface.
After the big Grammy-winning success that was Skin, Australian future bass pioneer Flume had a case of the LP pressures. He transformed random noises into tunes with his friends in the studio, breathing new life and fun into the creative process.
It’s hard to pick just one track from the continuous 17 that are Hi This Is Flume, but “High Beams” with fellow Aussie producer Owls and U.K. rising star Smoothie (who went on to work with Tyler, The Creator, Rockhampton, Mural Mass as well as release his own critically-acclaimed debut in 2019) is a perfect picture of Flume’s quest to get down and dirty. It’s the yin and yang of a man discovering the bleeding edges of himself while creating new frontiers for the electronic scene, and not without a little help from his friends.
If you're a fan of the creeping synth soundtrack to Stranger Things, French 79's “Hometown” is the brooding beauty you'll put on repeat. It's a deeply personal song, the first that sees the producer (born Simon Jenner) writing and singing his own lyrics.
The song reflects his childhood in the northeastern town of Spinal, France, while utilizing a two-part sonic structure to represent the dual sides of his musical universe. A testament to G Jones’ beat making skills, “In Your Head” is a nightmarish soundscape that lingers in a good way, with a reverb-soaked intro, haunting vocal samples and devastating drops that easily enabled it to become one of 2019’s standout experimental bass productions.
French prince of darkness Gesaffelstein made his name on hard, trudging, industrial electronica, the kind of sound people want to label “witch house” because it's so mechanically menacing. He blew up in 2013 with “Pursuit,” “California” and “Hate or Glory,” helped produce Kanye West's Yeezy, and then got pretty mute.
It was cool, but it left some fans wanting -- and ESA gave them a fist-full of frightful with his blitzkrieg follow-up EP Nova Sonic System a mere seven months later. The six-track project took a lot of punk influence, especially on intro tune “Orcs.” It rips out the gate at a running tempo, banging out treble and bass synths that mimic the thrash of '80s and '90s speed metal.
But, let’s be real…there’s nothing leisurely about the deep, dark baselines of Gorgon City’s “Go Slow.” In this slamming’ collaboration with Cascade, the U.K. duo once again show off their innate ability to dish out vocal-forward house heaters that light dance floors ablaze the world over. The memorable lyrics are brought to life by vocalist Romeo -- an unintended literary reference that feels almost fortuitous, given the “fragile love”-centric subject.
Leave it not to one, but two acts that have proven to be masters of that recipe to team up to create a track of the year with All You Need to Know, ” a song which feels more like a story with the way it tugs at your heartstrings. Called Lehmann’s soaring vocals lead up to Slander and Griffin’s moment of catharsis, which has rightfully become a highlight across both of both their live sets and the internet.
The song’s comments on YouTube, Twitter and Instagram are littered with touching and personal stories about love and loss. The video’s in-jokes are fun, but “Hungry Child” is best taken in its pure form as an unapologetic love letter to the house genre.
In a scene constantly reshaped by newcomers, it’s rare to find a band sounding this vital on its seventh album. Fewer electronic albums were more hotly anticipated this year than Millennium's Ascend, and the project didn't disappoint, expanding the celestial sound and scorched earth aesthetic the producer has cultivated throughout his career.
Millennium's third studio LP and major label debut, via Astralwerks, Ascend had a standout single in “Good Things Fall Apart” featuring vocalist Jon Billion. Starting as a guitar-inflected indie rock track, the song takes off both literally and figuratively, growing massive with Millennium's dually soaring and sentimental production and a music video in which he and Billion travel to deep space.
In “Let Me Go,” a collaboration with Aussie Tommy Trash, the self-titled “infinite one” shows off his varied production chops with a smooth and sultry electron house ballad featuring the understated vocals of Daisy Cartridge, which both tugs on the heart and inspires fingertips to graze the sky. Beginning with a steady bass throb and Blake’s lithe vocals, the song hits a new plane with his guest’s “heady-ass” verse.
The song exemplifies how electronic music continually evolves to bring in new fan bases, expanding the genre’s already wide scope. Ministry of Sound released the official version after the hypnotic sample of Nelly Jurado's “Afraid” had been cleared, and after Heb den and others had already been playing it out for months.
Take Farewell, whose members Yasmine and Japan Yousef grew up Pakistani-American in the very white neighborhood of Northbrook, Illinois. Farewell's trap, bass and rock infused sound made stars of the sisters at the top of the decade, though the group's story hit rocky roads with the forced departure of original third member, Kristopher “Rain Man” Tried.
The Yousef took a break from touring in 2018 to reconnect with the creative spirit, returning this year with an evolved sound that celebrates and incorporates their South Asian roots. “MANA” marked the beginning of this chapter, perfectly blending ancient instrumentation with trunk-rattling drum machines, bridging the gap between the digital and the spiritual with personally-empowered lyrics for the modern woman.
With a jolting shout out the gate, “Feeling Good” clocks in at a much higher energy than your typical summer jam, but just past a rolling 808 and 909 drum intros lies an uplifting piano crescendo, and if you’ve reached that point, there’s definitely no turning back from the unavoidable hands-in-the-air moment to come. In April, longtime duo Left wing:Body released “I Feel It,” a record that with its beaming piano chords and room-filling vocal was a front runner for Song of the Summer.
After three long years, pastel imagery appeared online hinting that new music from the French electro-house producer was en route. On May 29th, vinyl copies of “All My Friends” were hidden in four major cities, and it didn’t take long before unofficial rips of the feel-good track flooded Reddit and other forums.
Bursting with fresh energy, starry-eyed wonder and Mad eon’s own deliciously distorted vocals, “All My Friends” was the melodic homecoming that fans not only wanted, but deserved. Any song as universally loved as the Soul wax remix of Marie Davidson’s Work It would already have the accolades to be named a defining tune of the year.
A full two decades into her solo career, Melanie C reintroduced herself to us with “High Heels,” a collab with U.K. queer cabaret collective Sink the Pink. Seasoned by a series of joint performances at Pride festivals from São Paulo to Madrid, their chemistry is effortless on this track, allowing us to see the Sporty One’s inner carefree dance floor queen, ready to rule the scene for a night or a lifetime.
Rife with brass and off-the-cuff Seinfeld references, Opium’s “Send It” is one of those funky, booty-shaking anthems that even your friend who “doesn’t get EDM” can jibe with. 2’ of the Kiwi producer’s Sydney series -- an indefinite project he launched as an avenue to release music “in the now.” Likely to resonate with extreme sports heads and party people alike, “Send It” is the 2019 hype track that always sets the tone.
The lyrics are mostly a primer on shade -- “I had an outfit like that in high school” -- even as Brazil’s most famous drag queen is on the verge of a global takeover with her first English-language track as lead artist. Last year, Peggy You steamrolled the dance world with her infectious crossover hit “It Makes You Forget (Iterate).” In 2019, the fast-rising producer capitalized on her momentum by launching a fashion line, Karin, and new label, Guru Records.
In 2003, club kid turned pop rocker P!NK sang, “If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor…” Nearly two decades later, Pro spa offer their own take on DJ divinity in their single, “Control the Party.” The Leeds duo and recent Billboard Emerging Artists have fast been rising in the dance world for their ‘90s rave-inspired sounds, which “Control the Party” delivers in full via pummeling synth lines, siren calls and a killer transcendent vocal. “Incapable,” produced by Murphy’s longtime collaborator Richard Barrett (aka Crooked Man and Parrot), is a masterful disco slow burn.
In this unique remix package, the Finnish producer takes Rufus Du Sol’s gloomy radio hit on two separate rides. The clever yin-yang presentation might be more unexpected if it weren’t coming straight from the hard drive of house music’s self-proclaimed “odd one out”.
In a year full of weighty returns, we welcomed Parisian producer Sebastian of the Ed Banger set's sophomore LP Thirst. Fellow Frenchman Baker sings the part of a strong-but-wearied man trying to keep a steady head in a world of sinful pleasures.
The video was directed by Saint Laurent creative director Nathalie Languished on location in Turkey, among 732 abandoned château villas. We're sure the joy he felt welcoming a baby daughter to the world in August was overwhelming and beautiful, like a driving electroscope beat with a shimmering synth melody that hits in a warm gush of euphoric abandon.
“Song For Olivia” makes us want to dance for the joy of sheer possibility, because Stream wrote it to feel that way. I just needed some time to be a human … Thanks for being patient.” From 2016 to 2018, he dropped big collabs with Rick Ross, RL Grime and What So Not, Poo Bear, Joyride and others, as well as much-hyped remixes of Kendrick Lamar's “Humble” and Travis Scott's “Sicko Mode.” We'd argue Skrillex stayed releasing massive tunes throughout this imagined “break,” but whatever.
“Fuji Opener” with Alvin Risk is a banger and a half, but we like “Mumbai Power” featuring Beam for its focus on melody and hard-and-soft dynamics. With crunchy noises, pitched-vocal chops, pop hooks, pretty atmospherics, slightly-asian undertones and abrasive beats, “Mumbai Power” is everything the Skrillex style has come to represent.
If the first ten seconds of Slaughter’s breakthrough track don’t grab you by the proverbial balls with its lyrical gender flip, wherein she crowns herself the new paradigm of the model-banging playboy, then you might be sleeping through the resistance. Its throbbing baseline and beat, paired with Sophie Hawley-Weld’s angelic voice and Happen’s low growl, creates a delicious cocktail that is equal parts dirty, melodic and anthem.
“I can't tell if I'm hip or getting old,” he says, one of a handful of bang-on DJ koans that perked our ears up on both the dance floor and in our favorite brunch spots in equal measure. His spastic brand of bubblegum beats were a perfect Hawaii rave mood, but he was really just a kid who hadn't yet moved from his parents' house.
The pressure of sudden success and constant touring hit when he finally settled into his own place in Melbourne, miles away from everything and everyone he knew in Sydney. Six years of therapy and introspection later, Wave Racer returned with a happy face, leaning into his guitar pop roots to create honest, lyric-driven songs that can stand their own outside the club.
“Automatic” was the first of three singles this year, featuring his own voice pitched to robotic cuteness as he hints at the struggles to create on command.
