Tourist interest in visiting La Perla Puerto Rico increased ever since the popular Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, with a Justin Bieber appearance, Despacito song began to play worldwide.
The inclusion of the phrase, “this is how we do it down in Puerto Rico,” and filming the music video in amazing locations in San Juan certainly seems to have helped in spiking flight and hotel bookings towards the tropical Island.
After learning the news, singer Luis Fonsi reacted on Instagram, writing: “What a joy it is to read this in international media. Puerto Rico is the true protagonist of this song and this video.” He also thanked Yankee, Zuleyka Rivera (Miss Universe 2006) and director Carlos Perez of Elastic People.
“Despacito” (English for “Slowly”) was written by Luis Fonsi, Erika Ender and Daddy Yankee, with a reggaeton-pop song flavor accompanied with lyrics about having a smooth sexual relationship,. The song topped the charts in 45 countries and reached the top 10 of 9 others, making it both Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s most successful single to date.
It became the first song primarily in Spanish to top the Billboard Hot 100 since “Macarena” in 1996. The official video for “Despacito” on YouTube reached its one billionth view on April 20, 2017, becoming the second-fastest video on the site to reach the milestone behind Adele’s “Hello”.
