A ‘Paisa’ Just Covered ‘Despacito’ and It’s Completely Insane

Have you had Luis Fonsi’ “Despacito” Remix on loop for almost two weeks now? You’re not alone. In fact, millions of people cannot get enough of this song, which is why it broke a freakin’ record. According to Billboard, the remix of “Despacito” is the first “mostly Spanish-language” song to hit the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100.

“Despacito” has become a cultural phenomenon. Case in point: This hilarious cover featuring Tiburcio.

Yastin (Justin Bieber) sing in Español? Latinos taking over poquito a poquito.

You probably have a lot of questions. So let’s start with the obvious:

Who is this man named Tiburcio?

I’m pretty sure it’s my friend’s corny dad from Guadalajara, but his YouTube page says this: “My name is Tiburcio. You say it, Ti-Bur-Cio. I make the Paisa Zumba. I am famoso in Facebook. I like tacos and go everywhere.” Enough said.

What exactly is Tiburcio singing about? Justin Bieber, dancing, and tacos.

“Justin Bieber is singing en español,” Tiburcio sings. “No one tell Trump porque se acaba el mundo.”

The storyline is another bit of insanity!

When he finally catches on, her flirty ways are just too much for him.

Do these two have a happy ending? Tiburcio seems pretty happy to trade tacos for the girl.

Latin Music Revenue in the U.S. Grew in 2020, Up 20 Percent in Streaming

Latin Music Revenue in the U.S. Grew in 2020, Up 20 Percent in Streaming

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic that grips the globe, Latin music in the U.S. saw a 20 percent rise in streaming revenue in 2020. The genre posted a fifth consecutive year of overall revenue growth last year, according to the RIAA on Wednesday.

Latin music posted its best revenue in the U.S. since 2005.

The RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) released the 2020 year-end report on Latin music.

“Latin music continues to ‘punch above its weight’ – posting its fifth straight year of growth amidst the challenges and disruptions of the COVID economy,” wrote RIAA COO Michele Ballantyne in an annual revenue report.

After accounting for 5 percent of overall music revenue in the U.S. in 2019, that percentage rose to 5.4 percent last year. Latin music is heavily consumed on streaming and video platforms. Revenue for the genre is at its highest since 2005, the era when reggaeton music first broke through thanks to Puerto Rican acts like Daddy Yankee, Ivy Queen, and Tego Caulderón.

Bad Bunny had the highest-certified Latin music single of 2020.

Over a decade later, and it’s still reggaeton and Boricua artists that are leading the pack of Latin music stars. According to the RIAA, Bad Bunny’s “Yo Perreo Sola” was the highest-certified Latin music single of 2020. The hit song from his Grammy and Latin Grammy-winning YHLQMDLG album was certified 24-times Diamante. The RIAA is responsible for certifying albums and singles as platinum and gold. Latin music accounted for 15 percent of the certifications in 2020.

The news about Bad Bunny shouldn’t be a surprise as Spotify revealed last year that he was the most-streamed artist globally on the platform. He was followed by Canadian superstar Drake and Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin.

The RIAA credits Latin music’s 20 percent streaming growth in 2020 to the fans who are turning to paid streaming subscriptions. YouTube is another major platform where Latin music is consumed. Billboard reported that 30 percent of the top 100 music videos of 2020 were from Latin music artists.

Daddy Yankee Debuts “Problema” Live on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Daddy Yankee Debuts “Problema” Live on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Daddy Yankee shut down traffic for the live debut of his new single “Problema.” The Puerto Rican icon performed the song during Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Daddy Yankee performed the song outside of downtown Miami.

Daddy Yankee performed “Problema” live from Miami. With a marching band and a team of dancers, he took over a freeway bridge leading into the city. That could’ve been a problema for local drivers, but the reggaeton music pioneer put on one heck of a spectacular show.

As if DY fans did not get enough of “Problema,” he also performed the song on Tuesday during Good Morning America. His marching band and dancers joined him for a live rendition of the hit during the daytime.

“Problema” is going viral on TikTok.

“Problema” is Daddy Yankee’s first taste of new music in 2021. He wrote it with Boricua singer Justin Quiles and the song’s producers, Dímelo Flow, BK, and Snow Mike. On the slinky track, he raps about a woman that’s giving him a hard time. DY can’t get her out of his head. The perreo breakdown at the end of “Problema” makes it one of the more exciting reggaeton releases this year.

Aquí mis bailarinas diciéndome que me atreviera hacer el #ProblemaChallenge me retaron y tiré pa’lante 😂😂😂 #problema

♬ PROBLEMA – Daddy Yankee

“Problema” is going viral on TikTok thanks to the dance challenge associated to the song. Daddy Yankee’s music going viral from dance videos actually predates TikTok. He experienced similar success with his past hits “Con Calma” and “Dura.”

During last month’s Premio Lo Nuestro awards, Daddy Yankee gave the first live performance of his hit “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta” with Marc Anthony. That was one of the show’s highlights as he did a one-two step alongside the salsa music giant.
