What’s summer without a little bit of Fonsi?!

We all know Latin sensation Luis Fonsi. He’s the Puerto Rican Singer who’s making headlines everywhere recently for his song,”Despacito”, featuring Daddy Yankee that’s become a worldwide hit.

“Despacito” is the eighth song to hit the 20-week mark on the Hot Latin Songs chart, according to billboard.com.

But who is this Fonsi guy? He’s an international star that’s been making music professionally since 1998. Passionate about his career, Fonsi has released 8 albums, many which scored high on Billboard’s Latin American charts, AllMusic.com reports. He’s currently working on a ninth.

Watch his videos. Listen to his music. You’ll get a small taste of Latin American music and culture. Fonzi does a terrific job of blending romantic and dramatic elements together to create the perfect Latin pop sound and story. Now, “Despacito”, is slightly an exception as the song is more of a fusion between pop and reggaeton and has more of a tropical, upbeat, “lets-get-up-and-dance” feel. To be fair, all his songs are very diverse.
