The full version of Luis Fonsi and Demi Lovato's collaboration "Echame La Culpa" has arrived. The single is available on all digital platforms as of this Friday morning. Moreover, the official music video is available too on VEVO since today. It seems Luis and his label are going all in to make the first week sales of "Echame La Culpa" massive. Wouldn't be surprised if Luis and Demi even performs the song on a couple of TV shows next week.
This is Luis Fonsi's follow-up single to "Despacito" and it is Demi's first song she sings in Spanish in a very long while, if we're not mistaken. However, "Echame La Culpa", at least this duo version, isn't entirely in Spanish. It's Spanglish. Demi will only sing the first verse in Spanish and then everything else she sings will be in English. And you know what? It was for the best. Demi's last name may be Lovato but she clearly hasn't dominated the Spanish language yet. Her singing in this language sounded awkward and not beneficial for the song. In English she slayed of course.
"Echame La Culpa" is an upbeat break up song - because why can't a sad song be uptempo and party-ready, right? - that revolves around the hypocritical excuse of "it's not you, it's me".
As for the music video, it sees Luis Fonsi getting the party started with his crew and Demi, looking very Latina with her outfit, singing the break up lyrics with a big smile in her romantic bedroom.
