8 Spanish Songs To Add To Your Playlist [Part 1]

Back in 2016, I wrote a post about learning a language through music. Today, I’m going to share with you 8 Spanish songs you can add to your playlist. These are some of my favorites. Initially, I thought they were ballads but turns out they are pop songs.

For the difficulty level, I think intermediate learners would be able to understand them though not fully. As I am on that level myself (B1) I also included new vocabulary I learned from each of them. Apart from that, you can read very short info about the singer, description of the song as well as grammar, and accent being used.

It’s easy to follow along because they are not fast tempo. Before we begin, I have to apologize in advance if there are mistakes in the song description. What I wrote is based on my understanding after reading the translations

      Hey Ashish.

      I’d love to but unfortunately, I’m not qualified enough. I’m still learning the language myself.
