Beyoncé Knowles, most recently starred in “Dreamgirls”, will start to sing in Spanish. She revealed, “I just feel like I have to learn Spanish because I can sing it – I just can’t speak it.”
The singer of “Beautiful Liar” said she is set to release a new version of her album “B-Day” on April 3. The new version of her album includes six new songs – all sung in Spanish, including the theme song of the Telemundo telenovela “Zorro”.
Beyoncé Knowles revealed, “A lot of my fans are Hispanic and they’ve always told me, ‘You should sing something in Spanish,’ but I don’t speak Spanish at all. I took it in school [so] I thought, let me give this a try.”
How did she manage to sing the Spanish songs? The singer revealed, “I did these songs phonetically, sentence by sentence, and I spent a lot of time … making sure it was perfect, because I didn’t want to disrespect the language, because it’s so beautiful.”
Is there a chance that she would ever do an entire album in Spanish? She revealed, “I would love to. I wanted to see how people would respond to me singing in Spanish and I’m so grateful that people have opened up their hearts to what I’ve done.”
