I'm not in line with the general trend, but i really do enjoy the others more and will admit that my choices won't win a Grammy! (whereas the others two may very well do) #MainstreamMonth

OK. Didn't know that. Good for Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee and the song writers, Puerto Rico, and everything Latin in general.
How do you feel about the world going crazy about this one song (out of thousands released in the Spanish speaking world)?

There were similar phenomenons in the past. It truly doesn't mean anything to me, just that we are living in a global world and every now and then one genre highlights more than others.
Music, specially in the us, is extremely cyclical.

Despacito is fun and addicitive, but I dont think it will have a real impact in the future.

On a different note: I am a Mariah fan and this is the only song I wouldn't mind breaking One Sweet Day record! but some years from now we will see that this is america's longest ever number 1 and we will see a lot of red faces lol. Although Mariah's song is not the best of all time imo, it clearly represented where America was musically during mid 90s, Despacito does not represent where they are musically now or never... it is just a trend

We really need to find a 5th person so you don't lose every tie you vote for, Leo :)

I love both songs so much. But seeing ZZ Ward win would be pretty cool.

I pick Blues.

@Leo
Thank you very much for your thoughts. Smart observations (will think about it).

Will not waste my vote on "Despacito" as ZZ Ward has clearly the better song. So, I'm voting: BLUES, too!
