Yeah, that song that Justin Bieber made really popular.

The original song, by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, is up for a Grammy. For three different categories, actually – “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” “Record of the Year,” and “Song of the Year.”

If “Despacito” wins for “Song of the Year,” it’ll go down in history as being the very first Spanish-language song to win in that category. In fact, there’s only been one other non-English song to win in that category for the entire history of The Grammys, and that was the first year the awards took place in 1959, and the song was Italian – “Volare.”

The Grammys will happen January 28th, live from Madison Square Garden in NYC.
