Video Fix: A summer song needed even though ‘Despacito’ is still stuck in our heads


Time goes by so quickly and next month it will already be summer… again! It will be time to rest and dance in the beach bar or disco until the sunlight comes up. Being catchy, (Latin) Pop and/or songs, which are accompanied by a funny dance, are usually ‘musts’ for acquiring the ‘summer song’ status. Who cannot remember e.g. King África’s La Bomba?

But, back to this summer, any guesses as to which hit will be at the top of everyone’s playlist? Mad Love by David Guetta and Sean Paul, La Cintura by Álvaro Soler or Zusammen by Die Fantastischen Vier are some international bets from TermCoord for this year’s summer song! For sure, some Eurovision and X Factor-style songs will be played across the globe as well!

Luis Fonsi’s Despacito was last summer’s hit and is actually still stuck in many heads. While you get prepared to dance and sing 2018’s summer song, check out this video of Despacito in 40 languages!
