My 2 Favorite Sort-of-Latin-Sounding K-Pop Songs

I grew up in Puerto Rico, where we get all kinds of famous songs in English, Spanish, French, and other languages. My favorite singer as a kid was a little boy named Jordy. He sang a French song named Dur Dur D’Γͺtre BΓ©bΓ©. Which means “it’s hard to be a baby” πŸ˜† So cute!

Anyway! Now I’m super into K-pop, and every now and then a K-pop song comes up that reminds me of Latin music. Here’s 2 that I really like, that have this sound πŸ™‚


NCT Dream μ—”μ‹œν‹° λ“œλ¦Ό ‘Hot Sauce’

This is the perfect summer song 😍 And I love, love, love that there’s some Spanish in it! πŸ’–

🌞

Menea para abajo, y que menea para abajo
Y menea para abajo, y que menea para abajo
Menea para abajo, y que menea para abajo

Hot sauce 깊이 dip that eh
λ‚  따라 λ„Œ twist that eh
Hot sauce νƒ€μ˜€λ₯Ό λ•Œ ooh
μž…λ§›λŒ€λ‘œ 골라 ma dish…

(Menea para abajo loosely translates to shake it down, wiggle it down, or just (dance) get down.)


Kang Daniel κ°•λ‹€λ‹ˆμ—˜ ‘Who You Are’

Can you hear this and not want to dance?? Is that even possible?

πŸ’ƒ

Oh baby, don’t (don’t!) Wait (wait!)
All night long to tell me that
You want (want!) Me (me!)
λ„ˆλ₯Ό μ•Œκ³  μ‹Άμ–΄ yea
κΉŠμ–΄μ§„ 이 μ–΄λ‘  μ‚¬μ΄λ‘œ (uh ah)
였직 λ„ˆλ§Œ 보여 λ‚œ (uh ah)
λ‚΄κ²Œ 쑰금 더 κ°€κΉŒμ΄ 와


Tell me all about it, who you are
Who you are
Tell me all about it, who you are


I would really love if K-pop keeps adding Spanish lyrics 😍 I think that Kang Daniel’s song sounds the most like the Latin music I love πŸ’–

μ•ˆλ…•! Bye! Ciao!
