After the success of “Despacito,” Luis Fonsi seeks gold again, this time with Demi Lovato. The Puerto Rican singer is set to release a duet with the “Sorry Not Sorry” crooner on Nov. 17. Fonsi revealed the tune’s title, “Echame La Culpa,” last night on Instagram, while his collaborator posted a short video teaser of the track, where she sings in español.
The duo confirmed the rumored collaboration for the first time on Nov. 13 during a Billboard Facetime interview: “I have a really good feeling about the song,” Fonsi said. “I just got the chills,” Lovato replied. The former Disney star, who’s of Mexican descent on her father’s side, promised Fonsi: “I’ll practice my Spanish.”
The two artists excited fans about a possible collaboration when they began commenting on one another’s social media posts a few weeks ago. “What’s up Demi…” Fonsi wrote in reply to a sexy pic Lovato posted of herself in fishnet stockings. In response, Lovato commented on a photo Fonsi shared. “Hi Fonsi,” she wrote with a tongue-out emoji.
Fonsi, 39, who’s nominated for four Latin Grammy awards this year, spoke to Univision about his musical union with Lovato, 25. “My next song is a collaboration with Demi Lovato, who is an international artist,” he said, “and there I stay on that same path and with the same desire to hear the whole world singing in Spanish. This song will be bilingual so it’s all about uniting cultures, uniting languages, and continuing to dance and have a great time.”
