Fifth Harmony wants their own “Despacito.”
You can thank Justin Bieber for this trend. After Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee enlisted the Biebs for “Despacito,” which ruled the charts for months on-end, every artist and their Madre wants lightning to strike twice. Beyonce jumped on J Balvin and Willy Willam’s “Mi Gente,” Demi Lovato has a track with Fonsi on the way, and now it’s Fifth Harmony’s turn. They unleashed their Spanish-language Pitbull collab “Por Favor” during the Latin AMAs on Thursday.
I can’t say much about Pitbull’s talk-rap. He sounds exactly the same to me in every song. Fortunately, Fifth Harmony saves the day (is it just me or do I only hear Lauren Jauregui and Ally Brooke?). The chorus and hooks sound effortless.
I was prepared for an audio assault from Mr. Worldwide, but the collaboration turned out en fuego.
