Justin Bieber, Luis Fonsi's ‘Despacito’ Remix Just Had 2017's Biggest YouTube Debut


Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” has become a worldwide phenomenon since its release in January. With over a billion views on YouTube, the hit is looking like a top contender for song of the summer.

Even Justin Bieber is a fan. The Canadian singer lent his star power and voice to the recently recorded remix of “Despacito.” The new version features Bieber singing in Spanish for the first time and has already left its mark on YouTube since its release Sunday.

The remix audio video had approximately 20 million views in the first 24 hours since its release, making it the biggest debut of a music video on YouTube in 2017 so far, according to Billboard. 

Bieber gave fans in Puerto Rico a special surprise days after the remix’s release. The Canadian artist invited Fonsi up on stage during his Tuesday concert at José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum and the two performed their version of “Despacito” together.
