Among the most successful Latin singles are: "Mi Tierra," "Si Voy A Perderte," "Con Los Años Que Me Quedan," "Abriendo Puertas," "Tres Deseos," "No Me Dejes de Querer"and "Tradición", which also became Gloria's first number-one hit on the Hot Dance Club Songs being the first song on Spanish language to do it so.

Miami Sound Machine was fronted by Gloria Estefan during 1977 through 1988. In the later years, releases were credited to just Estefan as a solo artist, but the musicians who comprised Miami Sound Machine continued to perform with her.

In the early years, the band wasn't very successful globally because Estefan sang most of the songs in Spanish. The first single to make a sizeable dent in popularity was "Dr. Beat" in 1984. That was followed by "Mancunian Rumba" in 1985, a single first released in 1983, but re-released to capitalize on the success of "Dr. Beat". It was a big hit in Europe and a club hit in the US.

The group's breakthrough single in the US came in 1985 with the release of the lead single from their second studio-album Primitive Love. "Conga" made the Top Ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and was also a dance hit globally.

Other big singles came with the release of the group's third studio album, Let It Loose. This was not only their biggest-selling album, but included their first number-one song in many places. In the US, the band's fourth single, "Anything For You", became their first-number one song on the Billboard Hot 100. Another song, "Can't Stay Away From You", became a number-one hit in the Netherlands, their first-number one song outside the United States.

The band enjoyed continued success with their singles until the last released, "1-2-3", which was a Top Ten in many places where it was released, including in the United States. Following that release, the band, which at that time was named Gloria Estefan & The Miami Sound Machine, was dropped from billing though its members continued to record and perform with Estefan, now billed as a solo artist.
