Review – Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee “Despacito”


Never thought I’d say this but…Luis Fonsi has the reggaeton hit of the year. Yes, the same guy that sang “No Me Doy Por Vencido” and “Imagíname Sin Ti” is now dancing surrounded by models while Daddy Yankee does his thing.

I have mixed feelings about this song. On one side, I am very disappointed that another pop artist has decided to make a reggaeton song just because it’s what’s hot. On the other hand…this song is SO CATCHY! So I’ll have to find a happy medium and see it as a singer who’s looking to refresh his sound.

It’s only February, but I’m certain this will be the biggest song of 2017…or at least it will make the shortlist! The combination between Fonsi’s melodious voice, Daddy Yankee’s signature rap, the cuatro puertorriqueño’s unique sound and the unescapable reggaeton beat make it a too good to be true latin pop song. The video for the song deserves a special mention, filmed in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Check it out!
