Love 'Despacito'? Here's what you should listen to next
“Despacito” isn’t just the song of the summer — it’s hopefully a sign of things to come.
The most streamed song of all time has opened the door a crack more for Spanish-language songs to capture our attention on the world stage, and perhaps chart-topping artists will look toward the remix collaboration between Justin Bieber, Louis Fonsi, and Daddy Yankee for inspiration. What’s more, we’ve already seen pop stars remixing their own songs into Spanish this year, like Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” release with Puerto Rican duo Zion & Lennox and One Republic’s collaboration with Columbian pop star Sebastian Yatra.
