Rolling Stone published Friday its first special in Spanish on Latin music, which includes a list of the 10 best Latin albums in history and spotlights influential figures in other fields of the arts like literature and acting.

With rapper Pitbull on a title page that kicks off the special, the magazine goes into detail about the growing strength of Hispanic culture.

Rolling Stone considers the 1994 album "Re" by Mexico's Cafe Tacuba to be the best Latin disc in history, while Santana's 1970 disc "Abraxas" is ranked No. 10.

The Hispanic special also features articles on Pitbull, Maluca, Bomba Estereo and the hip-hop duo Calle 13.

Other talents singled out for their work and influence on Latino culture include actors Alexa Vega and Andres Parra, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Junot Diaz and illustrator Catalina Estrada. EFE
