Karel Gott & Darinka Rolincová in the 1980s: Zvonky štěstí / Zvonky šťastia, he sings Czech, she sings Slovak. Can you hear the difference between the two languages? ;-)

This Altan song has verses in Irish followed by the equivalent in English, without the rhyming structure. I don't understand why they don't apply any rhyme ...

I'm also aware that Clannad sing in a number of different languages, although I don't know if they do any two in the same song.

"Sorry" by Madonna. It's mostly English, but there are two verses which are "sorry" in different languages (French, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Spanish again. Japanese, Hindi, Polish, Hebrew.)

Here's a mostly German song with some English sprinkled in starting at about 00:45. BTW, DÖF was a German/Austrian group. Can you spot the Austrian band member(s)? They also released an English/Yiddish version.

There was a band from South Africa called Juluka. They sang in English and Zulu. I don't understand any Zulu, but the music is excellent.
