PANAMA TODAY.- Luis Fonsi’s hit “Despacito” composed in a duo with Panamanian Erika Ender and the collaboration of Puerto Rican Daddy Yankee, now has a new promoter, Justin Bieber, who covered the song in a new version that has already reached three million views on YouTube in just 24 hours.
Under the label #DespacitoRemix, the recording featuring the voice of the Canadian artist became one of the "contemporary hits" on Twitter and on Youtube.
"Come on over in my direction / So thankful for that, it's such a blessin 'yeah!" is the beginning of this new version in which Bieber sings in English along with Puerto Ricans Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, and in which he also dares to sing, this time in Spanish, the lyrics of the chorus.
Erika Ender said in an exclusive to Panama Today News, how this 2017 hit was born. It happened at the house of Luis Fonsi, who is acknowledged for his talent and huge respect for the industry, during a work session for his new album. Ender remembers that the Puerto Rican told her that he wanted to do something very sensual:
"From the moment we were composing it and ending it, we were excited because we could feel when a son will become a hit, one can feel it in the skin right away. But the truth is that the song has gone beyond all the proportions of what we thought would happen to it."
The Panamanian also said that "the cherry on the cake, the finishing touch, the art that Daddy Yankee put with his flow, with the post-choir he invented, with everything he added to the song, I think it has been a wonderful and perfect duo."
