Justin Bieber Doesn’t Know Spanish Words to “Despacito” [UPDATE]

Justin Bieber is at the top of the charts right now as the featured guest on a remix of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” the first mostly-Spanish song to reach #1 in 20 years. Bieber’s Spanish sounded just fine on the studio version, but words evidently failed him at NYC nightclub 1 Oak last night:


Yep, that’s Justin Bieber singing “blah blah blah blah” to the melody of his own #1 hit, perhaps his finest hour since walking off the edge of the stage. [TMZ]

Update (May 25, 10:45 a.m.): Damn, Justin Bieber really doesn’t know the words to this song. Here’s a longer video clip from Tuesday night’s club appearance, featuring Bieber ad-libbing lines like “I don’t know the words so I say ‘Dorito'” and “I ate a burrito, I just want a burrito.”
