  • Break-Up Song: "Se Supone", "Te Echo De Menos", and "Viviendo En El Ayer" are of the "Please Don't Go / I Want You Back / I Wish We Were Still in Love" variety while "Te Vas" is of the "Teetering on the Brink of a Breakup" variety. "Échame la Culpa", his duet with Demi Lovato is a positive break-up song, where they agree that instead of fighting they should break up (and that it's his fault).
  • Cover Version: A cover of "Despacito" was released that added some singing from Justin Bieber.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: The sexual context of some of his lyrics is not at all clear to those who don't speak Spanish. "Despacito" is notoriously bad, with lyrics translating to "I want to undress you with kisses" and "explore the walls of your labyrinth" — and they could be some of the milder lyrics.

  • Intercourse with You: "Despacito" is about sex, which might come as a surprise to listeners who don't speak Spanish. It's a romantic song called "Slowly", and the Justin Bieber version has had most of the meaning stripped.
  • One-Word Title: "Despacito" is only one word.
  • Title Drop: In "Despacito", the titular word appears several times throughout the song.
