Despacito was already a huge hit for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee before Justin Bieber added his voice to it in April. The original hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Charts and No. 44 on the Billboard Hot 100.
When Bieber came along, it’s no surprise the song catapulted to the top of the Billboard charts, even if he hasn’t remembered the words since. The remix hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for a record-tying 16 weeks.
But, it’s more than just the beat and records that make this song amazing. It’s the fact that in a time when our nation is in heated discussion about Latino races, a primarily Spanish-language song is topping the charts. It has made such an impact.
Final say: You won’t anything to happen despacito when listening to this. ★★★★★
