Justin Bieber Might Not Actually Know The Lyrics To 'Despacito'

Everyone's biggest karaoke fear-aside from being awful at singing-is flubbing the lyrics to their song of choice.

But Justin's "remix" to "Humble" happened the same night that he was out with the Chainsmokers, leading a goofy sing-along to his remix of Luis Fonsi's "Despacito".


Luckily, someone happened to be filming while Justin was on stage and captured a small portion of the song for posterity. In another clip he can be heard singing, what sounds like "Bababababa", over his Spanish verses. Ironically, last night was also the The Voice finale, on which top ten finalist and Spanish speaker Mark Isaiah flawlessly performed Bieber's part with Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.

The word despacito translates to "slowly" in English, but this appears to be the only Spanish lyric he knows, as a video has emerged revealing footage of the singer going "Blah blah blah" instead. Bieber can do a hell of a lot better than "blah blah blah", regardless of whether he's intoxicated or dealing with hecklers by his side.


In Bieber's defense, it is hard to remember a second language when you aren't sure what the words mean.
