“Despacito” which means slowly in Spanish, is far from a gimmicky sway dance craze song. It’s a sensual, fun, uplifting, dance kind of song, breaking language and cultural barriers. Especially when not all know the language and yet you swoon the world.
The song “Despacito,” by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi and reggaetón star Daddy Yankee is number 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the third week in a row (it also features Justin Bieber). The video is shot throughout the enchanted island of Puerto Rico which includes the popular night club La Factoría in Old San Juan, La Perla among other places. Featuring alongside, Miss Universe 2006 Zuleyka Rivera.
Although Latin influence in pop culture is not new, there hasn’t been a Spanish language song in the top spot since “Macarena” in 1996. And now that is something interesting….till then enjoy and sway along letting the music take you over.
