Justin Bieber dropping his verse in Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee inspired a revolution of bilingual collaborations, and now, many artists are fusing their musical styles and dropping catchy Spanglish tracks.
CNCO with Little Mix in “Reggaeton Lento (Remix),” Luis Fonsi with Demi Lovato in “Echame la Culpa,” and Ozuna teaming up with DJ Snake, Cardi B and Selena Gomez in “Taki Taki” are some examples of how the bilingual trend keeps growing.
Before the new wave of Spanglish duets (a song with Spanish and English lyrics), however, artists such as Romeo Santos and Usher were not afraid to change the game, as they did in their 2011 bachata track “Promise.”
With 2019 in full swing, we’ve noticed more and more artists from different parts of the world and genres teaming up with Latinos. Listen to some below.
