For Everyone Who Doesn't Speak Spanish, Here's "Despacito" Translated Into English

Guys, I'm not even going to lie to you. Despacito is my favourite song right now.

I know you guys might think I'm basic AF for saying that, but I don't care. Sometimes you need to embrace the basic, and shake it to a medley of Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber. It's just the way the world works.

Being a huge fan of the song, but also not someone who speaks Spanish fluently, I often wondered what it is that I'm singing and dancing along to.

Also being someone who doesn't like to not know everything, I decided to look up the translated version of "Despacito" on and share it with all of you:

Yeah, you know I've been watching you for a while / I have to dance with you today (DY!) / I saw that your eyes were already calling me / Show me the way I'm going (oh) / You, you are the magnet and I am the metal / I'm getting closer and I'm making the plan / Just the thought of it accelerates my heartbeat (oh, yeah) / Now I'm enjoying it more than usual / All my senses are asking for more / This should be taken without a rush...

Slowly  (TIL  that despacito is Spanish for slowly).
