HISTORY OF THE MACARENA

The "Macarena" instantly became one of the most famous dance songs in the world when the single was first released on August 15, 1995 by Los del Rio. Los del Río (meaning "Those from the River") is a Spanish music duo composed of musicians Antonio Romero Monge and Rafael Ruíz. As a duo, Romero and Ruiz were a consistent act since the early 1960’s but, in the summer of 1996, they enjoyed the success of their multi-platinum smash summer hit, Macarena, which sold over four million copies in the United States and spent a record 14 weeks at #1. The "Macarena" became the longest running #1 and best selling debut single of all time in American music history. It was ranked the "#1 Greatest One-Hit Wonder of all Time" by VH1 in 2002. The song ranks at #5 on Billboard's All Time Top 100 and ranks at #1 on Billboard's All Time Latin Songs.
