Luis Fonsi gave a behind-the-scenes look of the video for his new single "Calypso," featuring British rapper Stefflon Don.
Luis Fonsi had the song of the summer last year with his hit-single “Despacito,” featuring Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber. The Spanish-language song was on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for 16 weeks and broke several records on music charts and streaming services. Now, the Puerto Rican is giving us another tropical bop titled “Calypso,” featuring British rapper Stefflon Don.
Fonsi gave E! News a sneak peek into the music video, which was filmed in his home island of Puerto Rico. “We’re here in Puerto Rico because you know, the song needed a very tropical and colorful vibe. That to me is what calypso is, it’s the Carribean, it’s fun, and it’s dance, it’s having a good time,” Fonsi told E! News. “I get to work with an amazing artist, and we’re just doing something really fun in this song.”
Here’s a look of the video:
Stefflon Don is confident that language won’t be a barrier and the song will be another chart-topper for Fonsi. “The good thing about this song is that you don’t need to know what it says because it’s literally a feel-good tune,” she said. “Summertime is coming, and everyone is going to be playing this.”
When speaking with PEOPLE CHICA earlier this year, Fonsi revealed that he feels no pressure to create another chart-topper like “Despacito,” but hopes to keep the momentum going for Spanish music. “I know this is a moment in time. There will never be another ‘Despacito,’ and I can’t compete with that,” he said. “It’s a big responsibility now that the door is open to make sure that we keep on delivering quality songs.”
“Calypso” is set to premiere on June 14.
