Demi Lovato has a new single and we’re thinking it’s going to blow up and be the next “Despacito.” Here’s why: she’s singing in Spanish and it’s a duet with Luis Fonsi, need we say more? The song is titled “Echame La Culpa” (which translates to: give me the blame) and it officially drops tomorrow, but the singers have been teasing it for days!
According to Univision, Fonsi spoke very highly about Lovato and his collaboration with her. “My next song is a collaboration with Demi Lovato, who is an international artist and there I stay on that same path and with the same desire to hear the whole world singing in Spanish. This song will be bilingual so it’s all about uniting cultures, uniting languages, and continuing to dance and have a great time.”
On Nov. 13, the duo spoke about their new song together. “I have a really good feeling about the song,” Fonsi said, according to People magazine. “I just got the chills,” Lovato responded.”
From the teaser, we are so into Lovato’s Spanish accent, and she did tell Fonsi that she’d practice her Spanish. It’s paid off. Here’s a snippet of the song.
And the video looks amazing as well.
Do you think this song will be able to top “Despacito”? Either way, we’re so happy to hear that Lovato is embracing her Spanish roots.
In 2014, Lovato spoke about her Mexican background.
“Growing up in America, I never really appreciated my culture,” Lovato told the Glam magazine.“I knew what being Hispanic was, but I thought that since I didn’t look Hispanic, I was white.”
But that changed over the years, Lovato said.
“I tried to conform to what everyone thinks is beautiful,” Lovato added. “But my genetics gave me a curvy figure, and I’ve come to understand that in the Latina culture, that is beautiful. I no longer look at my body and think, Oh my gosh, I have such a fat butt. Or, I hate my thighs. On some days I don’t love them. But, you know, that’s one of the things that makes me me.”
