Luis Fonsi Explains His 'Evolution of Sound'

Luis Fonsi recently spoke on his ‘Evolution of Sound’ for his mega successful song ‘Despacito’ featuring Daddy Yankee, has learned.

Who knew that the pop balladeer singers unexpected and infectious single ‘Despacito’ was going to explode on the charts like it has?

Fonsi spoke with Billboard about how “Despacito,” which has reached no. 52 on the Billboard Hot 100 as of Mar. 13.

Luis Fonsi explained what influenced this new direction:

“Instead of a step forward, it’s two steps forward as far as an evolution of sound. The bare bones of just writing a song are still the same — I sit with a guitar and try to come up with a nice blend of music and lyric. I wrote “Despacito” with my guitar, but where you can tweak a lot is in the production. For us Latinos, this urban feel in the rhythm is what we breathe in and out; it’s a synonym of party. Latinos are known for being happy people and now, more than ever, I think we need happy music. That’s why I went this route.”

When asked is he would do an acoustic version “Despacito,” Luis said:

“Yeah, it’s a very melodic song and it works well in so many genres. We did a salsa version of the song, which is coming out soon, and we’ve done a more reggaeton-urban version, We’re getting a lot of people involved in doing a club version, too, because there are some great DJs who have shown interest. So, to answer your question, I’m definitely going to incorporate the simplicity of a guitar and a vocal at some point — I don’t know if I’ll record and release it or if it will be more for something live, but it’s always cool to show people that these songs have great melody and lyric and when you showcase them in a very simple way people see it from a different angle.”

Fonsi speaks on how his new hit “Despacito,” will dictate his upcoming ninth albums sound:

“I treat every album as a new beginning, so I’m asking myself, ‘What is pop music now? What are people consuming?’ and I take these things into effect. I’ve probably done the most homework for this album because think pop music in general is shifting at a rate where whatever you do today, if you wait too long to release it it’s going to sound old.”
