Welcome to Takeover Tuesday, where each week Billboard taps chart-topping artists and tastemakers to compile their very own playlist exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. We give the artists free rein to base the list on any subject they want and add whatever tracks they choose. The only rule? Make it as creative and unique to them as possible.
This week, ahead of Billboard's Latin Conference and Music Awards taking place in Miami, Latin sensation Luis Fonsi shares his playlist of bicultural music. "The overall theme of my playlist is that there's no theme," Fonsi tells Billboard. "There's no common denominator. My taste in music is completely wide open to different genres, generations, languages and styles. I grew up in a bicultural setting and my musical taste is just as diverse. This list is just a group of songs that have been part of my life and have influenced me on a personal and professional level."
Fonsi's latest hit, "Despacito" featuring Daddy Yankee, has dominated the Hot Latin Songs chart, where it currently sits at No. 1, for several weeks. The song has also held strong on the Hot 100 for 13 consecutive weeks. Last week, Fonsi released a remix of the track that features Justin Bieber (who sings in both English and Spanish); the remix had the biggest music debut of 2017 on YouTube, according to the site.
