Some of it I think is because they use English words sometimes like we use Japanese words. Karate is not a English word for example Sushi is not an English word.

Other reason is Japanese all learn English in school so they can sing songs with the mix of both. True, English song has other languages in it, but usually (if not always) is just 1 word most would know, not a full line

Of course there's reasons like different connotations and it sounding cool, but for songs specifically?

Sometimes, an English or other foreign word fits with the music better than with a Japanese word. Lyrics have to fit with the song
