Hot Latin Songs (formerly Hot Latin Tracks and Top Latin Songs) is a record chart published by Billboard magazine. It is often recognized as the most important music chart for Spanish language Latin music in the American music market. It was established by the magazine on September 6, 1986 with La Guirnalda by Rocío Dúrcal being the first song to reach number-one. The chart is based on airplay on Latin music stations. Songs on the chart are not necessarily in Spanish language, since the chart inception a few songs in English language and Portuguese also have charted. In 1994, three charts were introduced in addition to Top Latin Songs: Latin Pop Airplay which deals with pop songs whether or not it is Spanish-language, Latin Regional Mexican Airplay which dealt with different of styles of Mexican genres, and Latin Tropical Airplay which focuses on the genres of tropical music. In 2005, the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart was introduced in response to the growing influence of Latin hip-hop and reggaeton. Listings of the Top Latin Songs are also shown on Telemundo's music page through a partnership between the two companies. On October 2012, Billboard updated the methodology for the Hot Latin Songs to include digital downloads sales and streaming data in addition to the airplay charts. The airplay-only chart for Latin music continues to exist as the Latin Airplay chart.

Famous quotes containing the words songs, hot and/or latin:
“The hills are alive with the sound of music, with songs they have sung for a thousand years.”
—Oscar Hammerstein II (18951960)
“The imperfect is our paradise.
Note that, in this bitterness, delight,
Since the imperfect is so hot in us,
Lies in flawed words and stubborn sounds.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
“Americans living in Latin American countries are often more snobbish than the Latins themselves. The typical American has quite a bit of money by Latin American standards, and he rarely sees a countryman who doesnt. An American businessman who would think nothing of being seen in a sport shirt on the streets of his home town will be shocked and offended at a suggestion that he appear in Rio de Janeiro, for instance, in anything but a coat and tie.”
—Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)
