Latin pop (Pop Latino, in Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, Pop Latine in French) generally refers to pop music that has what may be perceived a Latin American influence. Geographically, it could refer to pop music from Latin America or sung by Latin Americans, generally regarded as Hispanics in the United States.

Occasionally, the definition extends to Latin Europe, primarily Spain and Portugal, though Italy is often included. Latin Asia(specifically the Philippines) should also be considered as well. Latin pop music is usually sung in Spanish or other Romance languages, although English and other languages are not uncommon. In addition, many international artists from France and Italy often sing in Spanish for Spanish language audiences.

Major Latin pop songwriters include Leonel García, Gian Marco, Estefano, Kike Santander, Juan Luis Guerra, Mario Domm and Robi Draco Rosa.
