"Maria Maria" is a song by Santana featuring the Product G&B.[1] The song was produced by Wyclef Jean and Jerry Duplessis.[1] Jean has revealed that the melody riff was inspired by the Wu-Tang Clan song "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing ta F' Wit".[2] Marc Anthony sang on a version of the song. At the 2000 Grammy Awards, the song won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Despite other lead singers from the album receiving awards, the Product G&B did not receive a Grammy Award.[3]

"Maria Maria" reached number one in Canada, France, Germany, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States. In the U.S. it stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 weeks. In 2008, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Hot 100 chart, Billboard compiled its list of the top 100 songs since the inception of the chart in various categories. "Maria Maria" came in at number 96 on the list of the Billboard All-Time Hot 100 Top Songs,[4] and number two on the list of Top Billboard Hot 100 Latin Songs of All Time.[5] Later, it was named the 14th most successful song from 2000 to 2009, on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade.[6]

Carlos Santana has collaborated with chef Roberto Santibáñez to open five restaurants of the same name, after the song. The majority are located in the San Francisco Bay Area, and other locations are in Arizona and Texas.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The video starts zooming onto Carlos Santana and the Product G&B as they are performing outdoors to a group of people partying. Cut scenes include Santana playing the guitar. The focus is then put on a girl the viewers may assume is Maria. She is looking in the mirror and later joins the party.
