This year biggest mega hit song "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee now has a new guest. We’re talking about Justin Bieber, who we never expected to hear singing reggaeton in Spanish. The Canadian star surprised us with a remix of the hit song and it's surprisingly great. The "Boyfriend" hit maker announced the new track this Monday by posting the cover art of the single on his Instagram account.

From the beginning this new version displays Justin’s catchy voice that can be heard singing an English intro and followed by Fonsi who sings the first verse before Justin hits the chorus singing again but this time in Spanish.

Under the title 'Despacito Remix', the adaptation of Bieber promises to be another hit and also a perfect way for Luis Fonsi to make a great entrance on the English market after years away from it.

“Despacito” has already been number one in 16 countries and has had 1.000 million reproductions in Youtube in just couple of months.

"My priority was always to create a song full of joy, movement and sensuality, that when the whole world heard it, they had no choice but to dance and sing it," said the singer of one of his greatest professional successes, according to El Pais.

In addition, the single is ranked # 1 unanimously in the lists of Spotify in all Spanish-speaking countries. On iTunes Latino, it has remained #1 on the Top Songs chart for 16 consecutive weeks.

 Meanwhile, the video is # 1 of 2017 globally, becoming the "Fastest to reach 900 Million Visits Between Videos in Spanish" and is the second video to achieve this milestone in history after "Hello "By Adele.

The song is part of his eighth album, Tierra Firme. Listen to this new version below.
