The remix of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” was a surprising mega hit for Justin Bieber. So, it’s surprising that he never seemed to consider eventually memorizing the lyrics.
“I can’t do ‘Despacito.’ I don’t even know it,” he said on stage at Summerburst Festival in Stockholm, responding to a request. After he failed to comply, a fan pelted a water bottle at him, which is not the way to settle things.
Last time Bieber attempted to sing the song, he improvised with words like “burrito” that absolutely were not the correct lyrics. So at least owning his ignorance is an improvement.
