Monchy y Alexandra - "Dos Locos"
This classic Spanish wedding first dance song was released back in 2002 off their album Confesiones. Sadly,this Dominican Republic based musical group broke up in 2006 and haven't released any music since.
Prince Royce - "Corazon Sin Cara"
This Bachata anthem was released in February of 2010 and is still a very popular song at latin/spanish weddings. In an interview Royce was asked to describe the lyrics of the song. He said that it is about "girls who always wear makeup or think they're fat or they're ugly...it's not all about the materialistic things and the image. It's not just about that." Royce pointed out the inclusion of instruments on the song such as violins and cellos, noting that such instruments are not normally used in bachata music.

Romeo Santos featuring Usher - "Promise"
Originally a member of the American Bachata group Aventura, this song was taken from Romeo's debut album which came out in 2011. This song combines elements of r&b and bachata and features the vocals of the legendary Usher. The collaboration came through because Santos' manager Johnny Marines introduced Usher to Santos. Usher was impressed by Santos ability to perform after seeing him on YouTube, saying: "This is the thing that people will remember." Usher and Romeo even performed the song live at the Latin Grammy Awards in 2011 held in Las Vegas.
