After two years without releasing new music, Luis Alfonso Rodríguez López-Cepero with a stage name “Luis Fonsi” wanted to create a fun track that had that Latin feel with a melody that he feels very comfortable singing and that will make people just dance.

The song “Despacito” was originally composed as a cumbia and pop song with lyrics written as a ballad, but Luis Fonsi began to consider giving it an "urban injection" and contacted reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee (Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez), who agreed to collaborate on the song after Fonsi played him the demo.

The rest is history, suffice it to say that the collaboration yielded a super hit “Despacito” which has become the longest-running foreign language number one in UK chart history. And it's been viewed more than a billion times on YouTube! “Despacito” is currently the most popular and the biggest song in the word.
"Despacito" is a reggaeton-pop song composed in common time 4/4 and written in the key of B minor with a tempo of 89 beats per minute and a chord progression of Bm—G—D—A.

Apart from toping the charts in USA since February 2017, “Despacito” has continued to top the charts of Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Scotland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Uruguay and Venezuela.

Christian music is a music that reflects the good values and morals of human beings, often categorized as edifying music. Music that causes you to think positively, do, or desire to do things inline with the Christian value system. It reflects God's good nature, values and morals. 
Don't be fooled by people expecting the word of God to come up in every lyric for it to be Christian and the lack of a religious word in the song makes it secular. That is just based upon many Christians misunderstanding between church music and Christian music.
Christian music is a branch of the music industry which includes many genres of music. For hundreds of years, Christians have been writing music in all types of genres with a Christian message. Generally, Christian music can exist in any type or genre! Every good thing comes from God. 
Gospel music is different because it is solely about good news. What makes Gospel music is the message. Gospel music is not always happy. Sometimes it is sad, but with understanding that it will be better. Gospel music is a personal testimony, that restate the word of God, and his many promises to his people.
