Background[edit]

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

After two years without releasing new music,[5] Luis Fonsi 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".[6] 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.[7] Fonsi showed the chorus he had written to Ender, his friend and winner of a 2016 Latin Grammy Award as songwriter,[8] and they then co-wrote the rest of the song.[6]

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, who agreed to collaborate on the song after Fonsi played him the demo.[6] Prior to collaborating on "Despacito", Fonsi and Daddy Yankee had worked together on "Una Oportunidad", released digitally in 2010.[9] Daddy Yankee wrote his verse and the post-chorus or hook,[10][11] they recorded the song in Miami in 2016.[12] The song was produced by Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres;[13] the former is known as a member of Colombian pop duo Cali & El Dandee[14] and the latter is known for previously working with David Bisbal and Ricky Martin.[15]

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",[16] after showing the track to his producers, they and Fonsi decided to focus on "Despacito" and leave the other works aside.[16] He stated that both Daddy Yankee and he were surprised after hearing the final song because it sounded "powerful, fresh and different".[16] 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",[6] 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."[6]

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,[17] he added that the "urban feel" in the song's rhythm is the type that "[us Latinos] breathe in and out" and that it is "a synonym of party".[17] According to him, "Despacito" is a very melodic song that can adapt well to many other music genres;[17] 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".[7] 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",[7] 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.[18][19][20]

Composition[edit]

"Despacito" is a reggaeton-pop song composed in common time (4
4
time) and written in the key of D major with a tempo of 89 beats per minute and a common chord progression of Bm—G—D—A.[21][22] Its implicit lyrics are about having a sexual relationship in a smooth and romantic way, making heavy use of allegories.[23] According to singer Justin Bieber, this song is also made in praise for Doritos,[24] 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", "I want to undress you with kisses / Sign your labyrinth's walls" and "We start slowly, then wildly".[25][26] However, Luis Fonsi expressed that some lines are free for interpretation.[27][28]

Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo produced "Despacito" using Pro Tools and its final mix consisted of 47 tracks,[29] the song begins with a Puerto Rican cuatro played by Christian Nieves, which is accompanied by an acoustic guitar when Luis Fonsi starts performing.[29] Nieves plays salsa-influenced melodies during the chorus and the hook, which contains vocal samples and "old school pop" effects based on American producer Dr. Luke.[29] Percussion instruments guache and güira were synchronized with a hi hat in order to highlight the track's cumbia influences.[29] The song uses the side-chaining production technique in order to make the chorus "more prominent", silencing the music as the kick drum hits,[30] it also makes heavy use of text painting when the music is slowed down as the word "Despacito" (slowly) is performed at the beginning of every chorus.[30] Its percussion consists of guache, cowbell, timbales, güira, and sequenced drum patterns.[29]

Release and reception[edit]

"Despacito" was made available for digital download on January 13, 2017 by Universal Music Latin.[31] It was released physically on April 30, 2017 in Europe as a 2-track single including the original and pop version,[32] 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.[33] Fonsi considered the trend to be "the new pop", and Ender said of it, "everyone is making this type of fusions".[5][7]

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".[34] 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",[35] he added that "'Despacito' has the magic it takes to reach the world" and that "works both on the dancefloors and on the radio".[35] 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".[36] Diana Marti of E! News said that "it is almost impossible not to dance to [it]".[37] Caroline Soriano of Enstars magazine described the song's beat as "quite sexy and catchy" and defined the lyrics as "captivating".[38] Brittany Spanos of Rolling Stone magazine described it as alluring, sexy and catchy.[12] Leila Cobo of Billboard expressed that "Despacito" is "a great pop song", highlighting the "undeniable immediate catchiness" of the pre-chorus and the chorus.[39]

Robert Joffred of Medium's culture blog That Good You Need stated in 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,[30] he highlighted the use of a steel-string guitar to play flamenco-style melodies instead of a nylon-string guitar, on which flamenco is usually played, representing "a modern take on a historical musical style".[30] 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,[30] he referred to the text painting as "pretty genius".[30] 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".[40] 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".[40]

Spanish record producer Nahúm García stated that "the way the rhythm breaks before the chorus is genius", referring to the first time Luis Fonsi performs the word "Despacito",[41] he explained that "the brain realizes that there has been a rare breakdown and it catches its eye",[41] and claimed that this "trick" in particular is not very common "and much less in pop music".[41] García concluded stating that the song "is very well made".[41] James Kellaris, composer and professor at the University of Cincinnati's business school,[42] expressed that "'Despacito' contains earworm elements" for being "cheerful, simple, repetitive and having a sticky rhythm".[41]

Accolades[edit]

"Despacito" won various awards and nominations following its commercial success. The original version received two Premios Juventud[43] and a MTV Millennial Award,[44][45] and was nominated for a Premio Tu Mundo.[46] On the other hand, the remix version featuring Justin Bieber received two Teen Choice Awards[47] and was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award,[48] it also has three pending nominations for the 3th Latin American Music Awards.[49]

In September 2017, "Despacito" was ranked the fifth best Latin song of all time according to Billboard, whose critics stated that it is "without a doubt, one of the biggest hits in Latin music history, period."[50]

Economic impact[edit]

In July 2017, it was reported that tourist interest in Puerto Rico increased by 45% since the worldwide success of the song.[51][52] Tour operators cite the song's music video for increasing interest in locations such as Club La Factoría and La Perla district in Old San Juan, which were featured in the video.[53]

Controversies[edit]

In July 2017, officials from the Government of Malaysia reported that "Despacito" was being banned from airing on government-owned broadcast stations as a result of public complaints.[54] Government ministers said that the song was considered un-Islamic and that its lyrics were "not suitable to be heard."[54]

In August 2017, the Basque Institute of Women (Emakunde) did not include "Despacito" on 'a "feminist" playlist of about 200 songs that should be played in festivals [in Basque Country].' A spokesperson said, "It's not about listening to just these songs and no others. It's about making sure that music by women is represented as well."[55][56]

Bieber's collaboration helped the song to reach number one of the US Billboard Hot 100, the first for a primarily Spanish-language song since "Macarena" by Los del Río in 1996.[63][3] The remix alone topped the charts of Finland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway and Poland, and reached the top ten in Mexico and Spain, it was certified 2× platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI)[123] and the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA),[124] and platinum by the Recorded Music NZ (RMNZ)[125] and the Pro-Música Brasil (PMB).[83] The song also received a gold certification by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie (BVMI).[126]
