Despacito Lyrics Meaning Revealed and It’s Slightly Creepy
For the first time, the 23-year-old Canadian crooner sang a hit in the Spanish language. But did Bieber really know the Despacito lyrics meaning? Last month, the singer was bashed by many when he apparently improvised some of the words to the song. In a fan-shot clip, he was seen singing along to a recording of the hit track but once he reached the chorus, he started replacing the lines with his own version.
He repeated it mockingly before pointing the microphone to the audience for help. It was obvious Bieber himself did not memorize or know the Spanish lyrics by heart. Putting the drama aside, the song is continues to be a hit across the globe. For those who are wondering what the lyrics mean, a slightly creepy translation was revealed.
The word “despacito” translates to “slowly” in English, but this appears to be the only word many non-native speakers know. Even Bieber himself finds it challenging, yet knowing the real meaning of the lyrics will help everyone get the feel. The song is actually about having sex, but slowly – which means letting the romance take its time.
The chorus continues with, “I want to breathe your neck slowly/ Let me tell you things in your ears/ So that you remember when you’re not with me/ Slowly/ I want to strip you off with kisses slowly/ Sign the walls of your labrynth/ And make your whole body a manuscript/ Turn it up turn it up….. turn it up, turn it up”
You can watch the video below to know the English version.
