Beyonce Sings En Español!
With all the talk of Beyoncé and the birth of her new bebé, it reminded me of the phase of her career (2006-2007) when she felt the need to record her most popular tunes phonetically in español. Her Spanish isn’t THAT bad, but the only song I can actually listen to on a regular basis is the remix of “Irreplaceable“ featuring our own Mr. 305 who adds just enough sabor latino to make the song seem legit.
Unfortunately for all the Pitbull fans out there, there’s no video for this track, probably because this remix has only been heard by a handful of gente who were lucky enough to come across it on Youtube (or now aqui!). Beyoncé had some success in her duet with Shakira with ‘”Beautiful Liar” but the Spanish version (“Bello Embustero“) doesn’t measure up. Finally, if you love your Alejandro Fernandez, you might appreciate “Amor Gitano“ (again, no real video, sorry).
I do respect Beyoncé as an artist, but it would be hard for anyone to disagree that her Spanish material missed the mark. If you’re interesado in checking out more of her bilingual “masterpieces”, we’ve pulled together a playlist our YouTube channel!
