Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despacito’ fever has reached new heights. We are simply helpless to this Number One track, and no mortal on the planet can’t help but sing it. Including this hilarious Italian trio.
The newest parody of the Number One track was delivered by The Jackal, a group of Italian Youtubers. The Italians hilariously mock the song as they can’t help but singing to the tune.
We all have that friend that “hates” Despacito…
Or so they say. Italian YouTubers, The Jackal, delivered yet another hilarious portrayal of what gets to us whenever we hear Despacito.First, they get pissed off just by hearing the by now extremely recognisable first tunes of the song.
Then they start a heated conversation about how much it sucks and that it doesn’t bring anything new. They say, “You know what pisses me off?” asks another. “It’s always the same lyrics, the same song structure, over and over again.”
They continue “trying” to identify who the artist is. Enrique Iglesias, not. Oh, is Fonsi. And say, “Sounds like Enrique Iglesias to me.”
And then it happens, the moment no human on Earth can run away from…it starts like “Des-Pa-Cito,” and the three friends find themselves singing and dancing to it.And then they continue dissing the track, “I just hate it!” laments one. “It’s cliché, it’s always passion and amor,” gripes the other one.
And then they go again…
Luis Fonsi’s song is smashing the charts
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s number one track ‘Despacito’ was already a huge hit in Latin charts when it first dropped in January. The video got the most views in the first 24 hours for a Spanish video ever. It also was the first Spanish-language track to reach the top 10 on Spotify’s Global chart.
In three months after being released, the video broke a record and got a billion views on Vevo, the song is in its 10th week at No.1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart and it’s tracking the Top 40 on the overall Hot 100.
Then Justin Bieber jumped in and the already crazy reached new heights. It became the first mostly Spanish-language No. 1 since “Macarena” in 1996.Plus, Justin Bieber becomes the first artist to ever notch two new Hot 100 No. 1s in consecutive weeks.
Also, the remix has led the way for more bilingual remixes. Last week, OneRepublic released No Vacancy, a remix with Colombian singer Sebastian Yatra.
Yatra wrote the Spanish lyrics along with longtime collaborator Mauricio Rengifo (Dandee) and Andrés Torres. “I grew up listening to OneRepublic and following Ryan Tedder’s career as a producer and composer,” said Yatra. “One of my biggest dreams was to work with him, but I thought it would happen maybe 10 years down the line. I still can’t believe this is happening.” It already has 2 million views. So, get ready for some more Latin tunes, and get ready to dance out.
