Luis Fonsi And Demi Lovato Team Up For Spanish-English Duet 'Échame La Culpa'

"Play me like The Beatles, baby, just let it be."

If you're still jamming out to 2017's Song of the Summer "Despacito" after all this time, then we're "Sorry Not Sorry," but we have to introduce you to another jam that you won't be able to get out of your head. Luis Fonsi teamed up with Demi Lovato for "Échame La Culpa," and gave us what might be the collaboration of the year.


That's no shade against Eminem and Beyoncé's "Walk on Water" track, it's just pointing out that the Puerto Rican star and the U.S.-born pop diva are both at the top of their game. Plus, it's really cool to hear these two join forces for a song with such a Latin flair. We hear Fonsi singing solely in Spanish while Lovato mixes it up with some English, making this a bilingual hit.

The song, titled "Échame La Culpa" — which translates to "Put the Blame on Me" — is infectious and impossible not to jam out to. This makes sense because in the video, which is chock full of neon colors, features the two singers throwing a fun warehouse dance party. Seriously, there are live instruments, exciting fashion, and impressive moves all around.

Lovato's English lyrics are enough to get a gist of what the tune is about: "OK, I don't really, really want to fight anymore / I don't really, really want to fake it no more / Play me like The Beatles, baby, just let it be / So, come on, put the blame on me, yeah." A couple is in the midst of an argument and they're ready for it to end — likely so they can groove the night away.
