Los del Río [Spanish for Those from the River, referring to the Guadalquivir or the Guadaira] is a Spanish music duo comprised of musicians Antonio Romero Monge and Rafael Ruíz. They are originally from the city section of Dos Hermanas in Seville. As a duo, Romero and Ruiz have been a consistent, and persistent, act since the early 1960s. They had achieved considerable attention in southern Spain by the time 'Macarena' was written, but not without experiencing some hardship beforehand. In the summer of 1996, the duo 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 No.1. It was because of the lone success of this song that Los del Río is considered a one-hit wonder. The song was also featured prominently in many other countries and sold extremely well in Australia.
'Macarena' is a Spanish song about a woman of the same name, or any woman from the La Macarena neighborhood of Seville, Spain. It was very successful between 1995 and 1997. The song became the second longest running No.1 and best selling debut single of all time in the US. It was ranked the "No.1 Greatest One-Hit Wonder of all Time" by VH1 in 2002. 'Macarena' was also ranked No.1 on a different VH1 documentary, "40 Awesomely Bad No.1 Songs". The song ranks at No.5 on Billboard's All Time Top 100. It also ranks at No.1 on Billboard's All Time Latin Songs.
This is the most common music video for the song created in 1996, featuring Los del Rio performing on a white backdrop. Some women are also seen dancing with the band. This version samples a line from The Graduate ["I am not trying to seduce you!"] which was later removed due to possible copyright issues. The other, similar version of the music video was in black and white and was more instructional in that the women and men are clearly shown performing the specific dance moves.
