Luis Fonsi is no stranger to the construction of universally successful hit songs and looks to continue to capitalize off his track record with the latest Stefflon Don-assisted “Calypso.”
As the name suggests, the new cut draws inspiration from the Caribbean calypso sound—steel drums and all—as Steff and Luis pull from their respective Jamaican and Puerto Rican roots to craft a new outing made with the summertime in mind.
With the “Calypso” video already amassing nearly 20 million views within its first 48 hours, Stefflon Don’s inclusion on what could very well prove to be the sound of the summer is only her latest feat. Most recently, she graced the cover of XXL as this year’s sole female rapper in the Freshman Class.
Anywhere and everywhere you know I take it off
Top down, all in your town, we live it up
Still got an attitude and I don't give a- (what?)
Tell the DJ, money pull up when we pull up
The way the thing set up
