Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito Remix“ featuring Justin Bieber has taken over the charts across the board and continues to be the biggest song of 2017! The summer smasher is creating history across streaming services globally as well as in India. The bilingual dance song is being credited for breaking barriers across territories and winning hearts worldwide. To celebrate the massive success of the song in India, Universal Music India & Shiamak Davar are launching a dance movement aptly titled The Despacito Movement.
The movement encourages dancers from across the country to groove to the song and send in their rendition of choreography to it. The best dancers will be handpicked by the master of choreography Shiamak Davar himself to be a part of an epic India dance video for the song. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for dancers to be a part of this dream collaboration. The video will showcase an Indian twist to the Spanish song and will be premiered exclusively India’s only lifestyle and music channel Vh1.
Puerto Rican superstar Luis Fonsi of the hit song says “Hello India, I’m so thrilled, excited & honored to know that my song Despacito is #1 in India! Thank you so much for the support. I hope you guys keep dancing & checking out my song.”
Sharing excitement for the collaboration, choreographer Shiamak Davar said, “I’m excited to get the opportunity to choreograph the India Video for Despacito. I’m all for collaborations especially when it helps us showcase the uniqueness in our Indian Style, movement and choreography. I love the song and I’m really looking forward to choreographing the video!”
Ever since its release, Despacito Remix has crowned the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the sixth consecutive week and is also the first mostly-Spanish language Hot 100 No. 1 in 21 years, since Los Del Rio’s 14-week No. 1 “Macarena” in 1996. In India, the hit song is currently #1 on charts and several playlists across leading streaming platforms Saavn, Wynk, JIO, Idea, Hungama, Gaana.
