Ezequiel Carrera

Orta Vez by Zion y Lennox feat. J. Balvin

The Puerto Rican duo received an ASCAP (American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers)  award for best Latin Urban Song for Otra Vez.

Chris Coghlan

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor

The song gained tremendous popularity as it was the theme song for Rocky III. The song was written by guitarist Frankie Sullivan and keyboardist Jim Peterik at the request of Sylvester Stallone after Queen denied him to use ‘Another one bites the Dust’.

‘Eye of the Tiger’ won a Grammy for Best Rock Performance by Duo or Group with Vocals.

Of course, it’s also famous for many different cinematic sporting moments, and it’s pretty hard to deny your body’s impulses when the opening guitar riff begins.

Josh Donaldson

Congratulations by Post Malone

‘Congratulations’ is the first single from Post Malone’s debut album Stoney.

The song is all about celebrating success, so why not have a walk-up song that celebrates that since Donaldson was the American League MVP in 2015. The verse from the song below is a good reference to that.

"They said I wouldn’t be nothing Now they always say congratulations Worked so hard, forgot how to vacation They ain’t never had the dedication"

By the way, Austin Post is the artist’s real name and he’s only 21-years old.
