Why don't they come to their senses?

Isn't Malasyan Spanish for 'bad asians'?

"A senior minister said the single, featuring Canadian singer Justin Bieber on a remix, was considered un-Islamic."

Oh. The remix, not the original. I'm ok with this. Bieber has a way of ruining things.

They've been out riding fences for way so long.

My Spanish is a little rusty but the term loosely translates to "Tiny Despac."

My wife has it set as her alarm. If I never hear that farking song again it will be too soon.

"The lyrics are not suitable to be heard," he added.

OK, so play this one instead: (SFW, just snoring...)

I dunno - I'm not familiar with this particular song but pick the right one, and that would certainly get me out of bed faster than one of those rolling alarm clocks you have to find to turn off.

Not that one of those things would have worked - only a (brief) matter of time before one of the cats punted it down the stairs and busticated it.

Bieber's bits are actually LESS steamy than the Spanish lyrics.

Spanish speaking Malaysians

Thems are fake Spaniards. They don't speak Spanish. They got their Spanish names because the Spanish church said all them years ago - 'Change your names to Spanishy ones, and you get some food'.

Missionarys still do this, so, Kim Jung Bong Park becomes Nathaniel Smith, and Bulawesi Mutambo Zambezi becames Joseph White.

I don't understand why the song is so popular. I gave it a listen on iTunes this week and said out loud to myself, "What the f*ck?"

We should give Puerto Rico to Cuba for giving us reggaeton. It all sounds the same. The ground rhythms, lyrics, and "melodies" are interchangeable. It's even worse than the music I call "Rotel" -- canned salsa. ¡Guácatela!

Without Bieber it would never have been the most streamed song, or did so well outside of latin countries. It was billed (right or wrong) as a Biebers latin song when it came out, and that blew up world wide.

It's really outrageous that these two nimrods are not praising the Beibs for his role, or giving him credit for their success.

Alarms are supposed to wake you up.  Choosing the most annoying sound/song ensures that you get up and turn the damn thing off.

For some reason I thought they were talking about Narcocorrido when I read the headline.

I just watched that video yesterday, and it made me feel like the guy in REM's "What's the frequency Kenneth". I don't get why the song is so popular. It's okay, but I've heard better pop tunes.

I don't know, the non-Bieber version has over 2.6 billion views, the Bieber versions have about half a billion views on YouTube. The original had over 1 billion views before the Justin Bieber version was even released. Justin Bieber kept the popularity going but he didn't create it.

If by "women" you mean "colonialism" and "get" you mean "get saddled with", sure.

Despite the revisionist history on Wikipedia, reggaeton was started in Panama with sounds from Colombian Champeta(they used to be the same country) . Puerto Rico just expanded on that bullshiat.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_champeta

The song that made it blow up was a Panamanian American, Rodney Clark "el chombo", el gato volador.

It is all Champeta, but it is where reggeaton sprang from.

I've always thought you could trace the roots to (also Panamanian) El General.
