Macarena is a Spanish song by Los del Río 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 #1 and best selling debut single of all time in the US. It was ranked the “#1 Greatest One-Hit Wonder of all Time” by VH1 in 2002.

As of 1997, the song had sold 11 million copies. While only having a 25% take in royalties from the song, Romero and Ruiz became immensely wealthy. According to the BBC News Service, during the year 2003 alone — a full decade after the song’s initial release — Romero and Ruiz made USD $250,000 in royalties.
