For this long weekend, we bring you music — like rapper Azealia Banks' playful Spanish-language turn — that will help you dance and digest the holiday meals. But we also bring you songs that help us all try to digest what's been going on in the world recently, whether it's a Mexican hip-hop group performing in the middle of a massive protest for 43 missing students, or a Chilean rap duo sharing their thoughts on the police shooting in Ferguson.

Tune in and let us know what songs are in your ears these days.
