Marco Rubio – who has been riding high after coming in third place during this week’s Iowa caucus – was recently “grilled” by CNN‘s Alisyn Camerota about his taste in music. “Over the last couple of years, I’ve gotten really interested into electronic dance music,” he said. “So, Avicii, Calvin Harris.”

I can literally think of nothing funnier than imagining Rubio attending Ultra, but that’s not the kind of wholesome fun he’s looking for. In his CNN interview, Rubio admits that he was once a West Coast hip-hop fan, but stopped listening to Tupac and NWA for the sake of his children. “I just like [electronic music] because the lyrics are clean, so I can listen to it in front of my kids and not worry about it,” he said. “I used to be a much bigger hip-hop fan. But the lyrics have gotten harder and harder to listen to when you have 10-year-olds in the car.”

OK, but if he really wants to prove that he’s a fan, he should heavily feature these five Latino artists in the rest of his campaign:


Nicolas Jaar


Matias Aguayo


Alejandro Paz


Niño Arbol


Erick Morillo
