How Foreign Songs Have Made an Impact in the United States

While you may not realize it, foreign pop music is growing in popularity in the U.S. Billboard magazine has only ever placed 16 non-English songs on their Hot 100 chart. This is a testament to the success of this type of music, which can open the door to a whole new world of musical talent. Here are some examples of songs that have made an impact in the United States:

In 1958, an Italian song named ‘Volare’ became number one on the Billboard chart. It was a hit in the Sanremo Music Festival and Italy’s entry in the Eurovision contest that year. The song’s global success was evident as the song was on top of charts for five weeks, and it earned the singer her first Grammy. Although foreign songs rarely make it to the top of the U.S. charts, some are more popular than others.

Several genres of music are featured in Foreign Songs. There are a variety of styles, including rap and Mongolian throat-singing. Some of the best tracks on this album are made in English. The album also contains some gems of krautrock that you will want to explore. And if you enjoy the more eclectic genres, there’s nothing wrong with listening to the music of other countries. However, if you prefer to listen to music that’s purely in the language of the artists involved, you may want to skip this album.

Another song that made an impact in the US is “Permission to Dance” by BTS. This song has become an internet sensation in the US, with over 4.5 million views. In the United States alone, BTS is the most popular foreign band. Three of its songs made the Top 7 Foreign Songs Chart. The song starred an Asian-style mermaid in a music video. The song has since been remixed and has more than thirty million views on YouTube.

Many community choirs perform songs in foreign languages. Although most members of these choirs understand the language, singing a song in another language may help them connect to the song’s overall meaning and the ‘feel’ of the language. While singing a song in a foreign language requires effort, the results can be rewarding. You’ll be surprised at the impact of just one song. And you’ll learn a new language in the process.

Listening to foreign songs may prepare students for their future career, and can help them get familiar with a new culture. As our world becomes more globalized, music can help us connect to one another. Music is a great bridge between cultures. As such, listening to foreign songs is an excellent way to improve your communication skills. When you learn about another culture, you’ll be better equipped to engage in conversation with the locals. The world is full of opportunities for you to make new friends and learn more about the language you’re learning.

The popularity of “Back in Blood” by BTS is another example of popular foreign songs. This Korean boy band collaborated with pop sensation Sia for the remix, which garnered over 268 million views in YouTube in April 2021. Another song from this same country, “Fiel” by Wisin, features Jhay Cortez and Los Legendarios. It’s been watched over a half million times on TikTok.
