Morning Song – Despacito

June 23, 2017

Reggaeton and pop, Spanish and English, Puerto Rico and Canada, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber—it’s not just sexual tension that makes “Despacito” the song of the summer so far this year in the United States (and much of the world—it’s already topped the charts in 45 countries).

But yes, it’s mostly sexual tension: the conflicting desires of the narrator(s) who knows he has to take it slowly (“despacito“) with his lover but also can barely contain himself when he’s around her. “Despacito” is sexy, playful, danceable: what’s not to love?
