Yesterday morning a bomb dropped. No, not that bomb! A Spanish (language) bomb, and Justin Bieber set it off.
Okay, I’ll quit with the dramatics, but this is a big f*cking deal! To me, at least.
It’s not every day that Luis Fonsi collaborates with Justin Bieber and Daddy Yankee to release a crazy-ass good song.

It’s called “Despacito,” and it’s the first time Bieber has ever sung in Spanish on a single. Naturally, I’ve been listening to it non stop ever since. Take a listen.

While the original version of “Despacito” is currently No. 44 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, this one will probably surpass that in no time. Mark my words.
So, how did people feel about this new song and more importantly about Bieber singing in Spanish? If they’re like me, they most likely LOST IT.

If you didn’t shed one tear over the song, you’re probably not human.
Don’t front, Justin wannabes.
If you're not Justin Bieber singing Despacito to me in Spanish today I don't wanna hear it

He has no weird accent. His Spanish is flawless!
Bieber is now officially an honorary Latino. Just kidding.
Person: “Who is your favorite SPANISH SINGER?”
Me: “Justin Bieber”
Person: “But he's not a spani…”
Me: “BITCH I SAID JUSTIN BIEBER!” pic.twitter.com/xjoDAzlHg1

But he should at least drop an entire album in Spanish.
Some people wondered what made Bieber want to sing in Spanish. Here’s one theory:

Makes perfect sense, right?
Oh, and this is a low blow!
@justinbieber Just for the record… you Spanish in "Despacito" is awesome! Way better pronunciation than Selena's in Pantene's commercial 😂

Not everyone speaks Spanish perfectly, OK?
Still don’t understand how pumped people were about the song? Here’s a tweet that should sum it up:

Thank you, Justin… really. We forgive all your past offenses. For now.
