Luis Fonsi pairs Caribbean atmosphere with a reggaeton groove on his slick new song “Calypso.” British rapper Stefflon Don adds some English bars and back-ups on the multi-lingual track.
Throughout the single, Fonsi croons in Spanish about a beachside romance over a steel drum hook. The “Despacito” singer plays up the multi-cultural vibe on the chorus, counting to three in multiple languages.
The Puerto Rican star paired the single with a lighthearted video that cuts between the singer hanging out on the beach and at a wild house party. The romp starts at a swimming pool and moves indoors, where people make out in a jacuzzi tub, a pony walks around and an old man DJs while randomly wearing an astronaut helmet.
In December, Fonsi became only the third Latin artist to place Spanish-language tracks (Échame la Culpa” and the ubiquitous “Despacito”) in the Hot 100’s Top 50.
