K-pop and Latin: Why the time is now for foreign language hits

At a time of Brexit and divisive world politics, something has happened with the UK chart.

Following the 2017 global success of Despacito there seems to have been – with a little help from Justin Bieber – a sea change.

Since then Little Mix, Cardi B and DJ Snake are just some of the acts to have charted with music either partially, or entirely, in Spanish.
