Seeing is Belieb-ing! Little Mix announce release of Spanish anthem Reggaeton Lento… months after Justin’s record-breaking success with Latin hit Despacito
Little Mix have seemingly taken inspiration from Justin Bieber’s recent Despacito success after nabbing a spot on Latin American boyband CNCO’s track.
The girl band will release their own Spanish anthem, Reggaeton Lento, on Friday, and it’s already predicted to be a hit, given that the original single has been viewed over one billion times on YouTube.
The single has also been streamed more than 472 million times, a figure that will no doubt heighten when the British pop favourites work their magic.

Just Hold On: Louis Tomlinson Is Flying Solo
It has been a remarkably swift and assured journey to the upper echelons of stardom for Louis Tomlinson. As a member of the cultural juggernaut that is One Direction, he was a crux of what is inarguably the defining ‘boy-band’ of a generation.

Tomlinson is no longer a boy, aided in no small part by the fact that he himself is now a father to a boy of his own. But growing up for him now means establishing his artistry on his own terms, no longer tethered to a group of his peers. Our first taste of things to come came at the tail-end of last year with “Just Hold On,” a collaborative single with Steve Aoki that debuted at number two on the charts in his native UK.
