"No Me Dejes de Querer" (Don't Stop Loving Me) is a song by Gloria Estefan, released as the first single from her third Spanish album Alma Caribeña ~ Caribbean Soul. In its original format, it is an upbeat tropical-salsa song.

Song History[edit]

Following the success of "Music of My Heart," "No Me Dejes De Querer" was a smash hit for Estefan and she won her first Latin Grammy award in the category of "Best Short Form Music Video"[1] at the first ceremony celebrated for these awards in 2000.

"No Me Dejes de Querer" became her first Spanish language-song to enter the Billboard Hot 100, and also her highest position to date (with a Spanish song) on that same chart. The remixes also made it at the Top Ten on the Hot Dance Club Play Chart.
