I prefer English music. If I with my friends I prefer Russian.

i prefer listnening to Arabic songs ,sometimes i hear english songs especially old songs its good for me

I love north american music, but love brazilian ones too.

I like songs in English because it helps me to learn English better and practice it more and more

I love noth american music, but also love brazilian ones.

I prefer songs of my country especially songs of iraqi such as kadhim al saher, but now i dont hear alot to him because i think his songs benfit to people in relatship not single just me , and i like music of irani i listening it sometimes, i dont trying to hear english songs so i dont know any A artist single

I prefer all kinds of music, no matter the language but the rythm is important.
I have to say that since I've been learning English and French I have got more interest, well, a little bit more songs in these languages. Actually help us to learn new vocabulary.

I prefer songs in English. I am from Russia and I think, most of Russian songs are just stupid and foolish. Sometimes it`s simple set of words, nothing more. For me foreigh music, especially English songs, sounds very catchy and awesome. Ohh, it`s so adorable... My favourite singer is either Lil Peep, or Pop Smoke. Their songs are really sounds very good

basically, I do not listen to music or songs most of the time but I like the English songs so much it is miscellaneous. they are adorable. I like listening to frank senatra , his songs are such adorable ones, they full of emotions. unfortunately, I can not understand the meaning if the most of the songs but whatever they are adorable.

Well I’m not really into music, but I sure do enjoy listening to some songs from a time to another. I’m an Arab, So listening to arabic songs touches me closer than English songs do, yet I still enjoy hearing it, even though I struggle sometimes trying to figure out all the words I’m hearing. So just like that guy from the podcast, I prefer listening to both and I enjoy English songs as long as the music is nice.
