Query Subject:   Resources on Code-Switching in Popular Japanese Music

Linguistic LingField(s):  Sociolinguistics
Subject Language(s):  Japanese

Query:   I am a student that is currently working on a thesis on code-switching in Japanese popular music and the motivation(s) for switching in music, but I am having difficulty finding research that has been done on this topic.

I have managed to find similar research on other languages such as the switching of Spanish and English in Reggaeton, but I have not been able to find much on the switching seen specifically with English and Japanese in music.

I am currently listening to Japanese and Korean music and I can hear some English lyrics in almost every song that I listen to. Surely there must have been some research done on this.

Any references to studies on this topic or any advice as to where I can find more information about it would be greatly appreciated.
