Best Spanglish Songs
Living in Miami, speaking Spanglish is pretty much standard now-a-days and we are seeing that same trend reflected in the Latin music scene. From pop to tropical to reggaeton, as the English/Spanish languages mold together, more and more artists are incorporating Spanglish into their songs.
We did a poll to our community and asked you to tell us: What is your favorite Spanglish song? We got tons of responses and we picked 5 of the most common answers!
#1) Stuck on a Feeling – Prince Royce ft. J Balvin
Prince Royce is known for taking classic American songs and turning them into Latin hits…but with this new canción he keeps the English in the mix! Also, love seeing him join forces with el colombiano, J Balvin!
#2) Bailando – Enrique Iglesias and Gente de Zona
One of the biggest hits of 2014, “Bailando” is so Spanglish…that both of the English and Spanish versions of the song still contain BOTH English and Spanish! Enrique Iglesias has always been known for translating his songs from Spanish to English (and vice versa), so its great to see him incorporate both languages into this canción.
#3) Mi Señorita – Matt Hunter
The #Hunters are well aware of Matt’s Spanglish skills…they are pretty impressive! Most of his songs, as well as his social media is pretty much all in both English and Spanish as Matt Hunter represents that younger generation who was raised in both languages.
#4) Promise – Romeo Santos ft Usher
One of the biggest Spanglish hits in recent years, it was a genius move by Romeo to bring in Usher to sing with him…giving him major cross-over cred that took the song to both English and Spanish radio stations.
#5) Miss Movin’ On (Spanglish Version) – Fifth Harmony
These chicas can sing!! The girl group was formed on the 2nd season of the X Factor and have been producing songs in both English, Spanish, and Spanglish to the delight of their fans! We also really love their Spanglish version of “Impossible.”
Oh and #6 through #100 are pretty much any song Pitbull has ever sung in or written, or did a “featured” rap solo!
