You Won’t Believe This Year’s Biggest Music Debut On YouTube!
Sometimes all a song needs to make it big is guest vocals from someone mainstream or a sick remix or both.
In this case, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s smash hit ‘Despacito’ which was already popular as now become an even bigger deal because of featured –in Espanol- vocals from Justin Bieber just dropped this week. According to video sharing site YouTube, the song became the biggest music debut of the year so far! In 24 hours the song which is just a new version of the reggaeton hit, raked in a phenomenal 20 million views from all over the world.
With nearly a billion views the original version of ‘Despacito’ which featured reggaeton legend Daddy Yankee, continues to dominate the Global Music Top 100 Chart, followed by Sheeran’s hit Shape of You. On the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, Fonsi and Yankee’s hit is sitting at Number One and as been there for an impressive 11 weeks straight also peaking at Number forty-four on the Billboards Hot 100.
Recently someone was able to get an interview with the legendary Puerto Rican singer/songwriter Luis Fonsi and he had this to say about the song; “celebrates our Latin culture and who we are; movement, dancing and rhythm are engraved in my bones. The genre I listen to the most is salsa, so people look at me and see this guy who’s done mostly romantic ballads, but there’s always been this other side. It captures the best of both worlds, and I think that’s helped the success of the song.”
Bieber who featured on the track is currently on his Purpose World Tour which is experiencing sell out shows and is also working on new music for a possible new album. It’s been a few years now since Purpose was released the pressure’s on to create something new and exciting for his fans. Bieber has been teasing, dropping hints all over his Instagram. Luis Fonsi is set to perform at this year’s Billboard Latin music Awards which will be held at the Watsco Center in Miami on the 27th of April. You can catch it live or stream it online.
