Never Heard of It Before Today~

How about you~?

It's called "Despacito", which in Spanish means 'Slowly'.

And it's garnered over 2-1/2 BILLION VIEWS,
on YouTube alone, and over four billion downloads
since January of this year, 2017, when the song was first introduced.

Never.Heard.
It. Before.

And IMHO, it's just average -- Both in composition and in lyrics (English translation below~), and below average in music-video quality. It's not that great a Spanish song at all...
I don't understand it.  I don' gettit....



I've never heard of this musician before either: "Luis Fonsi", who is from Puerto Rico,
however I learn this today from Wikipedia:

In 1998, Fonsi recorded his debut album, Comenzaré (I Will Begin). The record peaked at number 11 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart and contained the singles "Si Tú Quisieras," "Perdóname," "Dime Como," and "Me Iré".[6] Comenzaré became an instant hit in Puerto Rico and across Latin America, with Fonsi conquering such markets as Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Mexico, and Venezuela. His 2000 follow-up, Eterno, was even more successful. Around this time, Fonsi also recorded a duet with Christina Aguilera for her 2000 Spanish-language album, Mi Reflejo. On May 1, 2000, Fonsi performed at the Great Jubilee Concert for a Debt-Free World, an outdoor concert in Rome, attended by Pope John Paul II. That same year, Ednita Nazario won a Latin Grammy Award for a song composed by Fonsi. 
He also performed, with other artists, at the White House in honor of the victims of the September 11 attacks.
In 2002, Fonsi was the opening act for Britney Spears' Dream Within a Dream Tour in the US and Mexico.

Anyways, here are the Average Lyrics to an Average Song,
but which has the most downloads of any. song. ever. in. history:

Yes, you know that I've been looking @ you for a while
I have to dance with you today (DY)
I saw, that your look was calling me
Show me the way that I'm going oh
You you are the magnet and I'm the metal
I'm getting closer and I'm setting up the plan
Just the thought of It accelerates the pulse
now I'm enjoying it more than usual
All my senses are asking for more
This must be taken without any trouble

Slowly
I want to breathe your neck slowly
Let me tell you things in your ears
So that you remember when you're not with me
Slowly
I want to undress you with kisses slowly
Sign the walls of your labrynth
And make your whole body a manuscript
Turn it up turn it up..... turn it up, turn it up

I wanna see you dance
I wanna be your rhythm
I want you to show me
Your favourite places places places Places
Let me surpass your danger zones
To make you scream
And forget your name

DY
If I ask you for a kiss , come give It to me
I know that you're thinking about it
I've been trying for some time
Mommy this is giving and giving it
You know that your heart with me makes you bom bom
You know that this baby is looking for my bom bom
Come test my mouth to see what It taste like to you
I want to see how much love do you have
I'm not in a hurry , I want to do the trip
Let's start slowly then wildly

Step by step, soft softly
We are going to get caught little by little
When you kiss me so skillfully
I think that you're malicious delicately
Step by step, soft softly
We're going to get caught, little by little
And it's just that this beauty is a puzzle
But to put it together here I have the pieces

Slowly
I wanna breathe your neck slowly
Let me whisper things into your ear
So that you remember if you're not with me
Slowly
I wanna undress you with kisses slowly
Sign the walls of your laberinth
And make your whole body a manuscript
Turn it up

I wanna see you dance
I wanna be your rhythm
I want you to show me
Your favourite places
Let me surpass your danger zones
Till I make you scream
And forget your name
Slowly
We will do It on the beach in Puerto Rico
Till the waves scream dear lord
So that my seal stays with you

Step by step, soft softly
We're going to get caught little by little
I want you to show me
Your favourite places places places Places
Step by step, soft softly
We're going to get caught little by little
To make you scream (Fonsi)
And forget your name (DY)
Slowly
