tired of Taylor Swift, Beyonce , cardi B and Derulo...

I'm looking for Songs from groups or Artist not in North America or from the US... not on billboard 100. ( Sorry BTS) They can sing in English but not required..(Not international artists. Sorry Shakira! ) I've learned from watching Eurovision youtube how many non-Americans sing in perfect English.

What does a Chinese rap sound like?
What do Brazilians play at their weddings?
I want to hear The Russian pop version Britney spears!

Indian Opera?

Do Japanese have their own 4 square music? ( simple dance moves Ex: Macarena, Chacha slide)

Most annoying song in played in german radio that everyone is sick of but still pops up?

there is just so much out there that Americans haven't heard of...





Here my current favorite artist little big:

Russians signing in English, with Spanish numbers and Latin vibes...


I heard this one almost became the national anthem of Spain.

this guy is just crazy:

This is a classic :

At the moment a big hit in the Netherlands, originating from South Africa.
It's a prayer for hope in our time .
It has triggered a dance challenge (in NL under medical workers), who post their videos online.
Master KG - Jerusalema [Feat. Nomcebo]

This is the song:



The chalenge in a Dutch hospital:



Even Italian monks and nuns do it:

From my listening to a LOT of Sigrid, I've ended up listening to several other Norwegian acts.

Sigrid


Some others

Amanda Tenfjord


Aurora



Also, not Norwegian but I've been listening to a lot of Bjork lately.

Moldovan - also known by some as Numa Numa [ :p ]

Indian

And I wouldn't know whether something is Billboard or not because well..... I don't follow pop music really. But these are all songs requested back when I DJed in MMOs... That I rather liked.

Oh, and this one - Finnish

[But I think it might be a far scarier video than some might like, including me - I know the music not their video aesthetic.

I love Ismael Lo;
Also lots of Mexican music; Mana
This one is a little controversial but I like the musician a lot and happen to like the controversial song too;
Also this one: (pretty weird video with this one).

I listen to more music in Spanish because I speak it more fluently than French or Italian even though I grew up in a French speaking household.

When I was in Italy last year these guys were playing
My husband probably knows a lot more Italian artists than I do, I'll check.

You've probably already heard of Shannon Thunderbird but I have many of her songs and enjoy her music.

Dutch with some Caribbean roots:

Fair warning: It will stick in your head for hours if you listen more than once.
