Bridgerton has just debuted its first trailer for Season 3, which means the return of Lady Whistledown, the show’s period-era setting, and telenovela-worthy romance. It also means we’ll hear music we wouldn’t expect, as Bridgerton is renowned for giving well-known songs an instrumental cover to fit this world. 

One musical genre users have been asking to see in the show is reggaeton. From classics like Daddy Yankee’s “Llamado de Emergencia” to newer hits like Karol G’s “Bichota,” we’ve put together a list of reggaeton songs that deserve an instrumental cover on Bridgerton. We even included when and where an appearance by the song in question would fit perfectly.

And don’t forget, Bridgerton season 3 will be split into two batches of episodes, with Part 1 premiering on May 16, and Part 2 arriving a month later on June 13.


“Ella Y Yo” by Aventura ft. Don Omar

This 2005 song by Aventura ft. Don Omar is perfect for some romantic drama. It could work for Lord Debling, the new season 3 suitor, realizing Penelope Featherington only has eyes for Colin Bridgerton and Colin Bridgerton alone. “Y aunque tiene dueño, yo solo tengo un sueño, ser su protector” is quite a lyric.


“Llamado de Emergencia” by Daddy Yankee

This might not be Daddy Yankee’s most famous song, but the 2008 tune speaks to a love that can heal all wounds, which works perfectly for Kate and Anthony, lovingly known as Kanthony. Lyrics such as “Tú tienes la receta/La fórmula secreta/Para poner en ritmo en mi corazón” say it all.


“Na Na Na” by Goyo

If there’s a song that embodies Penelope’s post-season 2 reaction to Colin in the season 3 trailer, it’s Goyo’s 2022 song. “Y yo no quiero/Na na na na, na na na na, na na/De amor no muero.” She’s got better things to do than to wait for Colin. She’s going to set about making her own destiny.


“Bichota” by Karol G

Karol G’s 2021 song is an empowerment song that’s giving Eloise Bridgerton vibes through and through, even if she’s seemingly dealing with a lot in this upcoming season. “Me siento bichota sin salir del bloque/To’ me quieren partir y no tienen con qué.”


“Atrévete-Te-Te (Atrévete, Te, Te)” by Calle 13

Calle 13’s 2005 song, meanwhile, is about showing who you really are — a little bit like Penelope does this season. “Deja de taparte/Que nadie va a retratarte/Levántate, ponte hyper.” And the chorus could fit perfectly for an entrance or a confrontation.


“Otro Trago” by Sech

Sech’s 2019 song is about partying your sorrows away. And there are plenty of get-togethers on Bridgerton and plenty of characters we’ve seen trying to do just this to forget their woes in the ton. But “Y ahora a lo oscuro y sin disimulo/Olvidando la’ pena’, la pillé” does give some Benedict Bridgerton vibes.


“Mayores” by Becky G & Bad Bunny

Becky G and Bad Bunny’s 2017 song speaks about liking older men and being treated like a lady — but not in bed. “A mí me gustan mayores/De esos que llaman señores,” fits well with the show, no matter the season.


“Yo no soy tu marido” by Nicky Jam

This 2003 song is about being there for someone, even if you’re not the “official” suitor. Depending on how the story goes in season 3, this could apply to either Colin or Lord Debling. “Yo no soy tu marido/Ni tampoco tu hombre/Solamente el cangri/Que cuando tú llamas te responde.”


“La Bebé” by Yng Lvcas & Peso Pluma

This 2023 Peso Pluma and Yng Lucas song would be great for a ball, whether a young lady is trying to fill her dance card or a beloved couple is getting close. “Quiere que le ponga música/Pa’ que baile hasta abajo la bebé” is a general mood.


“Perdóname” by La factoria ft. Eddy Lover

2007’s classic La factoria ft. Eddy Lover song is basically Colin apologizing to Penelope after what he said at the end of season 2, something we can’t wait to see. “Que si alguna vez sentiste algo lindo por mí/Perdóname, perdóname.” It fits!
