Beyonce Knowles is hooked on Spanish after re-recording a batch of songs in the language she learned as a child. The singer has recorded six Spanish tunes for the Deluxe Edition of her hit album B'DAY, which hits stores this week (begs02APR07), and admits she took basic language lessons to master a foreign tongue. She says, "I did grow up in Houston, Texas, so I was around Spanish; I took it at school but I completely forgot it. "I had the best coach; I did it phonetically, every sentence I recorded maybe four times." And her Spanish is being praised by language experts and critics alike, who are impressed with her bilingual skills and accent. She says, "That's a great compliment." Now Knowles is hoping to find time to take more Spanish lessons and also learn how to cook.
