Many rap performers of Latin American descent use a mix of Spanish and English lyrics.
And I've heard some mixed French/English rap as well. It's probably common of hip hop
all over the world.

There is a song by La Tordue called "Le Petrin" which is one refrain sung in many languages: Chinese, French, German, Arabic, Hindi, Polish, Hebrew, Spanish, and Dutch
among others.

There's a song that was on the Eurovision song contest a few years ago. It's called
Liubi, Liubi I love you by a romanian group called Todomondo. it's in English, Italian,
Spanish, Russian, French and Romanian. I don't know the quality of the languages but
it's certainly more bearable than other eurovision songs.

I'm not sure how much Japanese they know:

Curumin is the name of a Brazilian band which likes to do Bossa Nova, Rap, Funk, Jazz... well, I like their sound
and
so they speak Brazilian Portuguese.

In their latest album JapanPopShow they have some random japanese words or phrases thrown in there. Along
with
the usual English as well. So in total three: Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, and English.

日華 - 大丈夫 (Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese, English)


Whoa, I haven't heard much rap in Chinese or Japanese because I usually stay away from them but this makes me
want to see more! I've heard only the opposite - that rap in Chinese seems pretty silly but I find this very nice
(although I can't understand much other than Daijoubu) ++ I also liked the use of the lion dancers and his
dress in a mix of tradition and modern. At least the camera makes it look very cool (I'm tired of gloomy looking
rappers with gloomy colors).
