10 songs I like that you probably haven’t heard of

If you know me, you know I have an eclectic taste in music. While I do enjoy a fair amount of what’s on the radio, I also listen to a lot of international music, as well as some songs that are not widely known. If you’re open-minded and looking to add something new to your playlist, check out the 10 songs below.

Raghav is a Canadian singer, of Indian descent. You can hear a lot of Indian flavors in his music. Also check out “Angel Eyes” and “Weakness”

Shola Ama-Still Believe (English)

Big Bang-Bad Boy (Korean)

Love their style. Korean hip-hop and extremely catchy. Good tune.

Balad from the Philipinnes. Great karaoke song if you can learn the words.

Beautiful Chinese song, very catchy.

Tiro de Gracia-El Juego Verdadero (Spanish)

A group from Chile. A friend from Peru showed me this song when I was in high school. I am really not sure of what is being said, but I enjoy the beat.

Seattle born, Korean-descent, Jay Park is not only a vocalist, but a superb dancer. Check out his other videos for more dancing.
