Luis Fonsi has been one of my favorite singers for a long time. The past year has been a huge one for him, and I've never been more proud! He is not only an icon in the Latin community, but he has managed to break into main stream pop!
This weekend, Luis Fonsi celebrated his 40th birthday, and he apparently had one big epic party. And yes that says 40... hard to believe, I know.
The "Despacito" singer was joined yesterday by his closest family and friends.
I mean look! He even had a red carpet for his bash!
Fonsi also received an early birthday gift when his music video with Daddy Yankee for "Despacito" reached 5 billion views on YouTube, making it the most viewed music video in the history of the platform.
"I can't sit here and pretend this is a regular thing. It's the most watched video of all time, what?!? This is so major! This video is so special to me, not only because of what it has accomplished but also because we shot it in my beautiful island of Puerto Rico," Fonsi said exclusively to E! News. "I am unbelievably grateful to everyone that has embraced "Despacito" and so honored that it was this song that united the world, crossing the language barrier. This makes me work harder to continue sharing our roots and culture. More to come!"
Happy Birthday, Luis! Forty has never looked better on anyone. Congratulations on everything you've accomplished.
