“Luis Fonsi wanted to start the year “Despacito” (Slowly) and ended up going with so much speed that it set a record on VEVO,” this is how Associated Press described the dizzying rise of Luis Fonsi’s first single, who in record time has crossed borders and has become one of the most successful releases for a Latin artist in recent years:
Fonsi, who will be traveling to Mexico to promote “Despacito” said feeling “incredibly grateful for the unbelievable support for the song and happy to share the success with my friend and colleague Daddy Yankee.“Despacito” is a tribute to my homeland Puerto Rico in its rhythm and flavor, and I am so proud to know that we are touching so many around the world with our music and joy.”
“DESPACITO,” written by Fonsi and Daddy Yankee in collaboration with Panamanian singer-songwriter Erika Ender and produced by Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo, is now available on all digital stores.
