Tom: This has a billion views on YouTube and you’ve probably never heard of it.
Tom: I’ve been travelling through southern Florida the last week or so, spending a lot of time listening to Spanish-language pop stations. Tim, there is an entire, massive pop music market that no one in Britain has heard of, and it’s got some really good songs going. This hit number one in nearly every Spanish-speaking country (and Lebanon, oddly) — and it didn’t even break the UK Top 40 when it was released back in November.
Tim: Hardly surprising – Despacito may have gone and got massive, but only after Justin got on board, and it became May when people were up for summer party tunes.
Tom: Yes, yes, but: it was massive in all the Spanish-speaking countries before that. And there are a LOT of them. Anyway: I’m not treating this one as a Flashback because the inevitable more-English remix has just been released.
Tim: Ah, well, there you go.
Tom: And, somehow, it’s just not quite the same. Maybe they should have got Bieber in again.
Tim: What, and have him singing about Doritos again? No thanks.
