Many of her songs like “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You”, “1-2-3”, “Get On Your Feet”, “Here We Are”, “Coming Out of the Dark”, “Bad Boy”, “Oye!”, “Party Time” and a remake of Vicki Sue Robinson’s “Turn the Beat Around” became international hits, with chart-topping scores. Estefan has sold an estimated 100 million records worldwide, including 31.5 million in the United States alone.
