This 14-track compilation by Universal Latino may not have the biggest hits of the 2012 season, but it does have them from that decade or so, making it a fine party mix. It kicks off with "Sexy Movimiento," the first single off reggaeton giants Wisin & Yandel's debut album Extraterrestres; the tune reached the number one spot on the Billboard Latin Tracks chart in 2008. Other hits here include JKing & Maximan's "Cuando, Cuando Es?," Magan's "Verano Azul," Fonseca's neo-cumbia/vallenato fusion jam, "Te Mando Flores" -- a smash from 2005's Corazón -- and "Mi Bombon" off Andrés Cabas' self-titled offering from 2002. This is a solid comp with hits from across Latin America, revealing not only where Latin pop has been, but where it's going.
