"Despacito" (American Spanish: [despa'sito]; English: "Slowly") is a single by Puerto Rican pop artist Luis Fonsi featuring Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee from the former's upcoming studio album.[1] On January 13, 2017, Universal Music Latin released "Despacito" and its music video, which shows both artists performing the song in the La Perla neighborhood of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and the local bar La Factoría. The song was written by Luis Fonsi, Erika Ender and Daddy Yankee, and was produced by Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo.[2]

It is a reggaeton-pop song composed in common time with lyrics about having a sexual relationship, performed in a smooth and romantic way. Commercially, the song topped the charts of 45 countries and reached the top 10 of 9 others, making it both Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's most successful single, it became the first song primarily in Spanish to top the Billboard Hot 100 since "Macarena" (Bayside Boys Mix) in 1996. The official video for "Despacito" on YouTube received its one billionth view on April 20, 2017 after 97 days, becoming the second-fastest video on the site to reach the milestone behind Adele's "Hello".[3] It received its two billionth view on June 16 after 154 days, making it the fastest video on the site to reach the milestone, with its 2,040,000 certified sales plus track-equivalent streams, "Despacito" is one of the best-selling Latin singles in the United States.

Several remix versions were released following the single's success, on March 17, 2017, both a solo pop version and a salsa version featuring Puerto Rican musician Victor Manuelle were released. On April 17, 2017, a remix version featuring Canadian singer Justin Bieber was released; this version helped to improve the song's chart performance in numerous countries, particularly in the English-speaking world. On May 5, 2017, both an electronic version produced by American trio Major Lazer and Colombian DJ MOSKA and an urban version produced by Sky were released.

Background and composition[edit]

Panamanian singer and songwriter Erika Ender (pictured) co-wrote "Despacito" with Fonsi.

After two years without releasing new music,[4] Luis Fonsi (Luis Alfonso Rodríguez López-Cepero) wanted to create "a fun track that had that Latin feel with a melody that I feel very comfortable singing and that will make people just dance".[5] According to Erika Ender, the lyrics were born in late 2015 in Fonsi's house after he expressed his desire to record a "swinging song" for his new album.[6] Fonsi showed the chorus he had written to Ender, his friend and winner of a 2016 Latin Grammy Award as songwriter,[7] and they then co-wrote the rest of the song.[5] Fonsi originally composed "Despacito" as a cumbia and pop song with lyrics written as a ballad, but began to consider giving it an "urban injection" and contacted reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee (Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez), who agreed to collaborate on the song after Fonsi played him the demo.[5] Prior to collaborating on "Despacito", Fonsi and Daddy Yankee had worked together on "Una Oportunidad", released digitally in 2010.[8] Daddy Yankee wrote his verse and the post-chorus lines "Pasito a pasito, suave, suavecito / Nos vamos pegando poquito a poquito",[9][10] they recorded the song in Miami in 2016.[11] The song was produced by Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres;[12] the latter had previously worked with David Bisbal and Ricky Martin.[13]

"Despacito" is a reggaeton-pop song[14] composed in common time (4
4
time) and written in the key of B minor with a tempo of 89 beats per minute and a chord progression of Bm—G—D—A.[15] Its implicit lyrics are about having a sexual relationship in a smooth and romantic way, making heavy use of allegories,[16] some of the song's sexual allegories are "I want to see your hair dancing", "Let me surpass your danger zones / Until I provoke your screams" and "I want to undress you with kisses / Sign your labyrinth's walls".[17] However, Luis Fonsi expressed that some lines are free for interpretation.[18][19]

The song uses the side-chaining production technique in order to make the chorus "more prominent"; the music is silenced as the kick drum hits.[20] It also makes heavy use of text painting when the music is slowed down as the word "despacito" (slowly) is performed during every chorus.[20] Fonsi stated that he made "Despacito" a danceable song because "Latinos are known for being happy people" and that he feels the need of happy music,[21] he added that the "urban feel" in the song's rhythm is the type that "[us Latinos] breath in and out" and that it is "a synonym of party".[21] According to him, "Despacito" is a very melodic song that can adapt well to many other music genres.[21]

In an interview with Billboard magazine in March 2017, Fonsi revealed that he originally focused on other songs of his album after making the demo of "Despacito",[22] after showing the track to his producers, they and Fonsi decided to focus on "Despacito" and leave the other works aside.[22] He stated that both Daddy Yankee and him were surprised after hearing the final song becaused it sounded "powerful, fresh and different".[22] Luis Fonsi said that he does not consider it a reggaeton song but feels that "it does have a reggaeton energy and an subtle urban beat",[5] he also affirmed that Daddy Yankee's work was a plus to the song because "it needed that explosion that only he can bring to the table."[5] In an interview with Billboard magazine in April 2017, Erika Ender stated that the track "made a special connection" and that the collaboration with Daddy Yankee was "a great idea",[6] she also said that because of the sensual nature of the song, they "needed to be responsible with a good lyric" and that her approach to writing for Fonsi was "to take care of how to say things with a good taste".[6] During the 2017 Billboard Latin Music Conference, American-Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Nicky Jam revealed that the original version of "Despacito" featured him instead of Daddy Yankee.[23][24]

Release and reception[edit]

"Despacito" was made available for digital download on January 13, 2017 by Universal Music Latin.[25] It was released physically on April 30, 2017 in Europe as a 2-track single including the original and pop version,[26] some music publications believed the single's success was influenced by a trend of combining Latin pop and urban music after the release of hit singles by Nicky Jam, Thalia, Enrique Iglesias, Carlos Vives, Ricky Martin and Shakira.[27] Fonsi considered the trend to be "the new pop",[4] and Ender said of it, "everyone is making this type of fusions".[6]

The song was well received from music critics. Doris Irizarry of AXS praised the fusion between "Latin sensual rhythms" and urban music, describing it as "masterful".[28] Sebastian Wernke-Schmiesing of Dance-Charts electronic journal stated that "a simple 4/4 time, Spanish guitar sounds, a crisp bass, and the excellent vocals by Luis Fonsi and [Daddy Yankee] were enough to get a hit single from the start",[29] he added that "'Despacito' has the magic it takes to reach the world" and that "works both on the dancefloors and on the radio".[29] Buddy Iahn of The Music Universe described it as an "infectious tune" and expressed that its music video became very popular because it is "great music performed by two of the biggest stars in the Latin music business".[30] Diana Marti of E! News said that "it is almost impossible not to dance to [it]".[31] Caroline Soriano of Enstars magazine described the song's beat as "quite sexy and catchy" and defined the lyrics as "captivating".[32] Brittany Spanos of Rolling Stone magazine described it as alluring, sexy and catchy.[11] Leila Cobo of Billboard expressed that "Despacito" is "a great pop song", highlighting the "undeniable immediate catchiness" of the pre-chorus and the chorus.[33]

Robert Joffred of Medium stated on his review that the song has "something [very] interesting happening" and that it can be classified as a Latin-American song because of its composition and characteristics,[20] he highlighted the use of a "flamenco style guitar" instead of a nylon-string guitar, representing "a modern take on a historical musical style".[20] Joffred also stated that what makes "Despacito" a "great song" is that it "throws decades of tradition to the wind in a very subtle way" because of the presence of "swung rhythms" when the word "despacito" is sung at the beginning of the chorus,[20] he referred to the text painting as "pretty genius".[20] Petra Rivera-Rideau, author of Remixing Reggaetón: The Cultural Politics of Race in Puerto Rico (2015), said that she "really likes" the song and that it is "super catchy".[34] She also stated that "what's great about 'Despacito' is that it shows reggaeton never really went away" and that the song's success "makes [her] really excited to see what’s going to happen next".[34]

"Despacito" received two pending nominations for the 14th Annual Premios Juventud.[35] The remix version featuring Justin Bieber has a pending nomination for the 19th Annual Teen Choice Awards, ceremony in which both Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee received a pending nomination for Choice Latin Artist.[36]
