Pretty self explanatory. Will he have another hit?

You could have done this as a poll. My answer is yes he'll be a one hit wonder for sure.

He will be a onehit wonder. The latin craze lasted 1 summer and will die down very soon

Yes. Then again, I thought that Daddy Yankee would be a one-hit wonder as well, and never thought he'd feature on the biggest song of 2017 so far.

Not so sure. New chart trends seem to last longer than one summer, like tropical house/tropical pop/future bass.

I would have said yes but as was mentioned above I'm sure everyone would have said the same about Daddy Yankee in 2005 so it just proves you can never write anyone off!

Added a poll happy.gif

I think he will for the time being at least, there's just no following up a mega hit like 'Despacito' without disappointing most of the music consuming population. Not to mention the Latin craze will probably be over in about 6 months.

I'd say he would be, but I can totally him cropping up again in a few years or so on a feature or something

Those are different though. Latin feels limited to the summer when everyone goes to the south.

It was the same as when songs like Ai Se Eu Te Pego were huge in Europe for 1 summer, only to be forgotten about 3 weeks later

But then tropical house still was popular in the winter despite being 'tropical' sounding!

You are completely missing the point. Tropical house cannot really be compared to Latin music. Tropical house is more global, is played in clubs throughout the year and played by radio throughout the year.

Latin music often has the "take me back to summer of ...." feel to it and therefor is more limited to the summer than tropical house. On the same way you hardly see ballads being extremely succesful during summer

I don't view the current wave of Latin songs as a trend like tropical house. From my perspective, it's the result of YouTube and Spotify growing so much in Latin countries in the last few years, that Latin songs are now racking up numbers on par with international English-language hits. That on its own means labels surely have more interest in investing in Latin music now, but particularly crucial is Spotify, as the Global Top 50 and global nature of playlists mean localised success inevitably rubs off internationally. For context, before October 2016, Latin songs making the Global Top 50 was limited to about 2 per year; then, Zion & Lennox's 'Otra Vez' hit the top 50, and by December there were 5 Latin songs top 50 at once, and that's pretty much been the norm since. It might subside a little as genre trends change, but I'm sure Latin music will always be popular in Latin countries, which means it'll keep spreading worldwide with the platform now available. Granted, the UK has shown no interest in non-remixed huge hits like 'Felices los 4' and 'Me Rehúso', but there will surely always be crossover-friendly hits like 'Mi Gente' every now and then, if not continued remixes too. I think Latin songs now are more comparable to broad genres like hip hop and dance music, that started as 'trends' but have remained constants in the charts for decades.

That's a bit of a tangent away from this thread's actual question. Luis Fonsi has had a long career with plenty of Latin hits, but I think his success was mostly in the '00s, not recent years, so that doesn't guarantee much. But with a hit as big as 'Despacito', it's hard not to get any attention with a follow-up. Maybe if he'd already released an album while 'Despacito' was riding high, cancelling the follow-up launch opportunity (like 'Uptown Funk' or 'Somebody That I Used To Know'), or if he was a novelty artist or something. But I think he's got a good shot at another chart hit.

Until 10 years from now when everything but 'Despacito' is forgotten anyway, the same way so many artists considered one hit wonders actually had several hits (eg MC Hammer).

I agree with everything you said, particularly this. I imagine the follow up will have some sort of success (both here and in the US) just because "Despacito" has been as big as it has worldwide, a bit like Psy with "Gangnam Style", followed up by "Gentleman" - everyone was so eager to hear the follow up, but ultimately, it was shite and not a patch on the first WW hit, so it peaked and dropped.
