Justin Bieber Jumps On The Remix Of Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito”

Well, I guess we know what Justin Bieber was doing in the studio last week. The pop star surprised fans tonight (April 16) by featuring on a bilingual remix of Luis Fonsi’s chart-conquering “Despacito.” In case you’ve been living under a rock, the sexy bop has taken the world by storm this year — topping the charts in 13 countries including Italy, Mexico and Spain and reaching the top 10 in many others. Oh, and the video is also is phenomenon. It has racked up 960 million YouTube views in three months.

The song was already climbing the Billboard Hot 100 (it’s current peak is number 44), but it’s destined to soar much higher now. Was does Justin add to an already-perfect pop song? An English-language intro and a lot of star power. “You are my sunrise on the darkest day, got me feeling some kind of way,” Justin croons on his verse. “Make me want to savor every moment slowly (slowly).” Listen to the sultry banger below.
