indexPuerto Rico has appointed Luis Fonsi, the “Despacito” singer as the new tourism ambassador for the country.

 

This 39-year-old singer was born in San Juan, the capital city of the country. He featured Daddy Yankee, the Puerto Rican rapper for his impending studio album.

 

In more than 45 nations in the world, the reggaeton-pop track became a chart buster. Also, the remix featuring Justin Bieber became the first song majorly sung in Spanish and topped the Billboard Hot 100 ever since the Bayside Boys Mix song “Macarena” in 1996.

 

Besides, this song in July is one of the most-streamed songs in the world, attaining global streams over 4.5 billion.

 

The main video of this song lately became the most viewed video in the history of YouTube, boasting 3.2 billion views at present.

 

A lyric in the song goes like this: “Vamop a hecerlo en una playa en Puetro Rico” [“let’s do it on a beach in Puerto Rico”], as well as the line: “This is how we do it down in Putero Rico.”

 

Watching the accomplishment, Ricardo Rossello, the governor of Puerto Rico has appointed Fonsi to work with a tourism company and help in endorsing travel to the country. The country has already witnessed a major tourism boost and the credit goes to the song as the title means “slowly”.
