Music to Help You Learn Spanish

Many studies show that music can be a powerful tool when it comes to learning languages. Of course, this does not mean that it will happen overnight. But, listening to songs you like while paying extra attention to the lyrics can fast-track your learning! 

— May 28th, 2020

Below we will share a list of  Spanish artists and songs to get you started:

1. Shakira – Me Gusta

We’ll get started with Shakira, who is a Colombian singer, songwriter, dancer, and record producer. Shakira is often called The Queen of Latin Pop. The good thing about her is that most songs have also the English version, so you can go back and forth to make your learning experience easier. 

This classic song “Suerte” or in English “Whenever, Wherever” was one of her biggest hits!

2. Enrique Iglesias – Bailando 

While Shakira is the “Queen”, “The King of Latin Pop” is widely considered to be Enrique Iglesias. Enrique is a Spanish singer, songwriter, actor and record producer.

Enrique’s last album, “Sex and Love”, was Spotify’s 7th most-streamed album worldwide in 2014. “Bailando” turned out to be the most popular song on that album and it spent 41 weeks in the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.

3. Maluma – Robarte Un Beso 

At just twenty-six years old, Juan Luis Londoño, better known by his stage name, ‘Maluma‘,  has become one of the Artists with the greatest impact on urban music and the youth idol of Latin music globally.

This song “Robarte un Beso” features two other Colombian artists: Carlos Vives and Sebastian Yatra. 

4. Marc Anthony – Vivir Mi Vida

One of the biggest Latin music genres is Salsa, and one of the biggest Salsa artists is Marc Anthony. Anthony is the top-selling tropical salsa artist of all time. He has won two Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy awards. He has also sold over 12 million copies worldwide. 

One of Marc’s most popular songs is Vivir Mi Vida. Vivir Mi Vida is a nice feel-good song, and due to its repetitiveness and slow tempo, it’s a great song for beginner Spanish learners!

5. Luis Fonsi – Despacito 

Last but not least, we have Despacito. A song was written by Puerto Rican singer, songwriter, and actor Luis Fonsi. 

The artists have received seven Guinness World Records titles thanks to this chart-topping song! As of today, the Youtube video has 6.7 billion views, making it the most viewed video on the platform. 

Its catchy tunes will certainly get stuck on your head and help you remember some basic Spanish words. 

6. Ricky Martin – Living La Vida Loca

This song is an oldie, but a really good song as Ricky Martin has a very neutral accent. It is also the perfect song to get you moving!

There you have it! Six songs to help you learn Spanish. Remember to download the lyrics and listen carefully to the words on each verse.

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
