Puerto-Rican music star Luis Fonsi is on vacation on the island of Mykonos, where he delivered an impromptu performance in front of a crowd of astonished fans.
On Wednesday, Paraga beachgoers spotted the multi-platinum-selling performer at the beach bar restaurant he was dining and gave him no choice but to perform for them.
The restaurant put Fonsi’s Grammy-winning hit song, Despacito, on the speakers, so Fonsi naturally took the microphone and got everybody dancing to the tune.
Despacito’s timeless success
Released on January 12, 2017, the reggaeton/Latin pop song was written by Fonsi, Erika Ender, and Daddy Yankee and produced by Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres.
At the time, it attained Latin Grammy Awards for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Urban Fusion/Performance, and Best Short Form Music Video at the 18th Latin Grammy Awards. It also won him seven Billboard Latin Music Awards, five Billboard Music Awards, and three Grammy Awards nominations.
Five years later, Despacito is ranked among the best Latin songs of all time and referred to as one of the most successful Spanish-language tracks in pop music history.
Although Despacito is Fonsi’s biggest success to this day, his first Latin Grammy and Billboard Latin wins were awarded for Aquí Estoy Yo, performed with Aleks Syntek, David Bisbal, and Noel Schajris in 2009.
Fonsi enjoying Mykonos life
Later on Wednesday, Fonsi posted a photo of himself in Mykonos, captioned “Mykoneando.”
The Latin pop star also posed for a photo with the landmark white windmills of Mykonos in the background.
This is the second summer in a row that Fonsi has chosen Mykonos as his vacation destination.
He is reportedly enjoying his time on the famous island in the company of his wife, model Agueda Lopez, and a few friends.
The world-acclaimed performer took the Greek island break between tour dates in Spain. His next concert is scheduled for August 18th at Puerto De Santa Maria.
