Luis Fonsi is a multi-platinum-selling recording artist, actor, and television host. Initially molded as a singer of romantic ballads with dramatic flair over sweeping string arrangements, Fonsi has enjoyed great success in that role, but it hardly encompasses his vast range of talents.
Since releasing 1998’s Comenzaré, the vast majority of his albums and singles have charted; these include 2006’s breakthrough Paso a Paso and 2009’s Palabras del Silencio, which both went to number one and spent multiple weeks on the charts. In January 2017, “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee was released; its video attained five billion views. 2019’s Vida also landed inside the Top Five globally. In 2020, Fonsi continued releasing hit singles including “Imposible” with Ozuna and joined Wisin, Alejandra Guzmán, and Carlos Vives as coaches on the first Spanish season of La Voz on Telemundo. In 2021, he teamed with singer Helene Fischer on the smash “Vamos a Marte.” In February 2022, Fonsi and Manuel Turizo issued the party anthem “Vacaciones,” followed by “Ley de Gravedad” featuring Cali y El Dandee in March.
