Luis Fonsi and Demi Lovato’s new song “Échame La Culpa” is out. And looking at the numbers, it’s practically a hit already.
In just under 12 hours of its release, the song had over 3.5 million views. It features Lovato singing in Spanish, something fans haven’t seen much from the pop queen, if at all. In addition to Lovato’s powerful bilingual vocals, the song has that familiar reggaeton beat (you know, the one tun-tiki-tun-tun kind), giving us “Despacito” vibes. Although she’s had a couple vocal hiccups in the past, most recently with an interesting rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” at the Mayweather-McGregor fight back in August, she sounds like a rock star here.
The duo had been teasing the collaboration for a few days.

Although the title of the track had yet to be released, it was pretty obvious what was going down.
Look at them trying to be casual like they didn’t just record a banger.

Coy or not, these two may just have the next mega hit on their hands. With Lovato’s song “Sorry Not Sorry” just reaching double platinum status and Fonsi sweeping the Latin Grammy’s, these two definitely knew what they were doing by teaming up. “Despacito” was a massive and unexpected success. Let’s see if Fonsi can make lightning strike twice.
