Although foreign languages really aren’t my forte, I absolutely love listening to Spanish music. It’s a shame not to understand the lyrics and be able to sing along, but the songs are so cheerful and upbeat that it doesn’t bother me in the slightest! I had a great summer holiday in Spain (read more about it in these posts) and I can’t wait to visit Barcelona in November to see Shakira’s El Dorado world tour!
With Beyoncé having recently sung in Spanish to join J Balvin & Willy William’s Mi Gente (she revealed on this Instagram post that she’s donating all of the proceeds to hurricane relief charities), I thought it was rather appropriate time to share some of my all time favourite Spanish songs. If you prefer to be able to understand the lyrics, most of the songs have an English alternative, but my links lead to the Spanish version. Enjoy!

I hope you like all of these Spanish songs as much as I do - let me know if you can think of any others to add to the list. Oh, and you should definitely check out the music video released for Beyoncé’s feature in Mi Gente - the dancing is phenomenal!
