One sign that society is advancing in a good direction: The youth are shaking it to non-English lyrics. We have K-Pop to thank for that, and now we have Xavi to thank as well. The 19-year-old Mexican American singer can't enter the upper balcony of the Roseland at the Portland stop of his current Poco a Poco Tour, but he's already lived a jam-packed twist of your typical ingenue origin story—he started writing songs on his guitar at a tween age, survived a car accident that almost cost him his voice, posted videos of himself playing songs in his hospital bed, and now his corridos tumbados regularly dance off with Bad Bunny at the top of Billboard and Spotify global charts. When he sings, "yo puedo comerte como a ti te gusta,"—which appears to mean "I can eat you how you like" on smash-hit "La Diabla," we get a feeling we'll be hearing that turn of phrase all summer. by Suzette Smith
