After a break from releasing new material in the past two years, Luis Fonsi has set his right foot for 2017. The Puerto Rican pop star who has been busy with other music related projects kicks off the New Year with two releases – a single and its video.
What a better way for Fonsi to express his feelings and love for his homeland through his new single titled “Despacito.” But that’s not all; he adds an urban twist to his masterful fusion of Latin sensual rhythms featuring his compatriot Daddy Yankee. First of all the video was released worldwide exclusively on Telemundo’s “Al Rojo Vivo” this past Thursday, Jan. 12.. As for the single, it was released today Friday, Jan. 13 on all national and international radio stations as well as on digital platforms - iTunes, Spotify. The video has already reached 344K views on VEVO.
“Despacito” penned by Fonsi himself with the collaboration of the Panamanian composer Erika Ender and produced by Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo will be one of Fonsi’s songs to be included in his new album. Furthermore, the video directed by Carlos Perez was filmed in December obviously throughout the enchanted island Puerto Rico which included the popular night club La Factoría in Old San Juan, La Perla among other places. Daddy Yankee also partakes in the video along with model, actress and former Miss Universe 2006 Zuleyka Rivera.
