Last month Justin Bieber was performing at 1 Oak nightclub in New York City when he admitted, mid-performance, that he didn't know the words to "Despacito." Bieber appears on the remix of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's Spanish language hit and sent the track to No. 1. However, when it came to the New York performance Bieber sang “blah blah blah blah” over the song's chorus and replaced words with "Dorito" and "burrito."

Asked about this incident by Rolling Stone, Fonsi apologized for his collaborator and admitted that the song is not an easy one to memorize. “That chorus is not easy to sing, even for fluent Spanish singers like myself,” Fonsi said. “It’s got a lot of lyrics, it’s kind of tongue-twisty.”

"Despacito" is Bieber's second No. 1 of 2017 alongside his appearance on DJ Khaled's "I'm The One" with Chance The Rapper, Quavo, and Lil Wayne.
