The real world is a kinda big place, so which language is the most relevant really depends on what kind of use you have in mind.
Also, there is the matter of the language difficulty: for example, Chinese would be an awesomely useful tongue to know, but if you go that route you have to keep in mind that it will take *a lot* more work than Spanish to master - I do not know how much true it is, but I heard people saying that ten years of Chinese study give you approximately the same level of proficiency of two years of Spanish study.
This said, I would suggest Russian.
It is spoken in a very vast, economically powerful region of the world, it has an impressive wealth of literature, and while not nearly as difficult as Chinese or Arabic it is different enough from English to keep things interesting.
Moreover, knowing it would make it easier to pick up other Slavic languages - essentially in the same way in which knowing Spanish is a *big* help in understanding French and Italian, albeit perhaps not up to the same degree.
Plus, many Russian people do not speak English, so knowing Russian would definitely be more useful than, let's say, knowing Hindi or Dutch.
