Whether you speak Spanish or not, Spanish-language music can make you dance or hum along to their catchy melodies. Spanish or Hispanic music is becoming more and more popular, especially given the Latin rhythms from South and Central America and Spain. Along the way, we'll build a collection of popular Spanish songs that you can listen to in order to help with your Spanish. Make sure you add these tunes and songs to your Spotify or iTunes playlist. The best way to learn a language is to understand the culture it represents; in no way is a culture better represented than through its music. From the vibrant beat of hip hop to the frenetic glee of Kpop — yes, even the fiery flavour of Spanish guitar gives a tantalising taste of what might await those daring enough to speak and understand their language. Any language teacher will tell you that music and songs sung in that language will definitely boost your learning. This is not mere hype. Studies have shown that students who listen to songs in their target language are better able to absorb its rhythm and syntax. Later, as they are able to discern individual words, singing along serves a pronunciation practice.
Some Spanish music has crashed language barrier of U.S. pop music charts
There are many songs that become popular and then make a crossover to other languages. Some turn out to be good, but others are a complete disaster. I assume that translating a hit song to a different language is difficult. Think about the challenge of keeping the essence of the original lyrics yet finding the appropriate words to fit in the melody… that takes some in-depth language skills! That is why both versions do not have the exact same translation. There are other songs that not only are in Spanish, but are also available in different rhythms. For example, I found two versions of Hotel California that have the flamenco influence from Spain and Total Eclipse of the Heart with three versions: a pop Spanish, a merengue and a Mexican style.

And Spanish music is an international phenomenon. Well, have you ever listened to the full song in Spanish? They sing all types of music. And of course, you get to learn Spanish while you dance along we cannot guarantee learning and dancing will occur at the same time. One step at a time, people! Well, we recommend the first time you listen you watch the video and enjoy the music without worrying too much about the words. The second time around you can start and stop the song to try and pick out some more vocabulary.
