Justin Bieber just proved he can sing in Spanish on his latest song. The Canadian pop-star teamed up with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee for a remix of their recent fire-hot single "Despacito." Last week, Bieber stoked speculation amongst his fans by posting a photo of himself in the studio; today, he shared the same photo to promote his "Despacito" remix. The result is surprisingly addictive.

It makes perfect sense for Bieber to work with "Despacito" right now—the track reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart back in February, making it Fonsi's seventh No. 1 hit ever. And for those who aren't super-plugged in to the Latin music scene, "Despacito" is also the first song on Spotify's Viva Latino—Top 50 playlist, which has almost 4.5 million followers.

"Despacito" isn’t Bieber’s first foray into the Spanish market. Bieber previously collaborated with Colombian singer J Balvin on a reggaeton remix of "Sorry" back in 2015. Balvin does most of the heavy lifting with the Spanish verses, but now that we know that Bieber is capable of tackling guest verses en español, perhaps it means there could be more bilingual Bieber productions on the way.

They say the best way to learn a language is through immersion, and if Biebs wants to Rosetta Stone his way into bilingualism by collaborating with high-profile Latino artists, we are here for it.
