Las Vegas, NV - International artist Luis Fonsi became the biggest winner of the night when awarded four Latin GRAMMY for his history-making single “Despacito” at the 18th Annual edition celebrated last night in Las Vegas, in the categories: “Record of the Year,” “Song of the year,” “Best Urban Fusion / Performance” and “Best Music Video Short Version.”
In addition to being recognized, Fonsi closed the award ceremony with one of the most celebrated and spectacular performances of the night, singing a one of a kind version of “Despacito” that traveled through four different musical styles, same that influenced the making of the song. Fonsi performed an acoustic section with Puerto Rican sounds with Cristian Nieves (the Cuatro player who recorded the original version of "Despacito"), a Cumbia set with Colombian group Bomba Estereo, a salsa duo with Puerto Rican artist Victor Manuelle and a dance remix with DJ Diplo.
After a year full of historic accomplishments, dominating the world's top charts for 11 consecutive months and breaking records in sales, streaming, and views on YouTube, Fonsi is ready to start a new cycle. Today marks the highly anticipated worldwide release of his brand new single and video titled "Échame La Culpa”(Blame Me) featuring GRAMMY nominated & multi-platinum global superstar Demi Lovato.
Fonsi who had the opportunity to share and record the song with Lovato in New York said: "Recording with Demi was a wonderful experience and what thrilled me the most was her desire to sing in Spanish and how perfectionist she was with the pronunciation of the lyrics.” "Musically speaking she is perfect, which made it the easiest vocal production I've ever done in my career."
“My first impression of Fonsi was that he was not only extremely grateful, sweet, outgoing but that he is also patient with my Spanish, which is really refreshing because I was worried that it was not going to be good, said Lovato. “But it turned out OK and I was really grateful for him that he was able to be there and he was very supportive. Of course, he is extremely talented and I love the fact that I got to work with him.”
Also, the two superstars premiered the cinematic, sizzling, and sexy music video for “Echame La Culpa” shot last month in Brooklyn by Elastic People’s Creative Director Carlos Perez. Watch it below.
Fonsi will start promoting “Échame La Culpa” as he continues his successful "Love and Dance World Tour" on November 19th and on, with concerts in Russia, Latvia, Serbia, Croatia, France, Germany and the Netherlands. To find out tour dates visit: www.luisfonsi.com.
