‘Tis the season to listen to Christmas songs on repeat without thinking, “Is it too soon?” Like many other artists across genres, Latin acts have been releasing back-to-back bilingual (Spanish and English) holiday songs — whether original or covers — to get in the spirit navideño.

Among those who recently dropped a cover of their favorite Christmas song is Kenia Os, who released her version of “Blanca Navidad.” “It’s a classic that’s never missing in my house when Christmas begins,” the influencer and singer says in a statement about the recording. “When they asked me to choose a song that represented that magical moment of being close to our loved ones, the first one that came to my mind was ‘Blanca Navidad.’”

José Feliciano — of course known for his anthemic “Feliz Navidad,” which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020 and remains one of the top 10-performing hits in the decade-plus history of Billboard‘s Holiday 100 chart — is now back with a whole new Christmas-inspired album, Love & Christmas, which includes his new up-tempo track “Viva La Navidad.”

There’s also Chiquis, who unleashed her rendition of “Jingle Bells (Vamos All the Way)” with a twist on the lyrics, marking the first time she’s released a holiday-themed song. The Mexican-American artist’s version is a catchy urban-tinged cumbia track that will get anyone on their feet and singing along to her Spanglish lyrics.

Just in time for the holidays, here’s a list of new Navidad-themed or inspired Latin songs released this year, to add to your Christmas music playlist.
