And unlike 99.9999% of A-listers, Justin chose to swerve Coachella over the weekend and made a decision to focus on hyping up his remix of Luis Fonsi's new track "Despacito" where he sings a guest vocal IN SPANISH.

On April 17th Luis Fonsi delighted and surprised fans across the globe by releasing a Despacito remix featuring Canadian superstar Justin Bieber.

The remix kept the original rhythm, but added a little extra spice when Bieber's Spanish-language track is dropped in for the first time.

The original version of the hit remixed song, was originally released earlier this year back in January. The art for the remix is one of the images from that set of pictures, a view over Justin's shoulder in a recording studio at a lyric sheet on a music stand.

The original version of "Despacito" is now at No. 44 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. This guy, thank you so much for letting me get on the record. "It's incredible!" Bieber said to him after the performance. Its dance-centric music video has generated over a billion YouTube views, and counting.

Then, Bieber also took to social media where he posted the link to the song.

As the Inquisitr and a tsunami of media outlets reported yesterday, Justin's bilingual vocals on the "Despacito" remix touched off much praise for the superstar's wonderful pronunciation from many, including Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda and Columbian singer José Balvin.
