Justin Bieber teams up with reggaeton artist J Balvin for a bilingual ‘Sorry’ remix

Justin Bieber followed in the footsteps of Will Smith and teamed up to release his own Latino remix for his single, “Sorry.”

The Canadian pop singer dropped a reggaeton-flavor remix of his new hit single with rising Colombian star J Balvin.

The song features Balvin singing and rapping one of the verses to the single in Spanish. It has already begun to make its way up the pop charts, according to Entertainment Weekly.

By Friday morning, the song had nabbed the No. 1 spot on iTunes chart in Mexico, the website reported.

The duo teased the new single in a short Instagram video before releasing the track on iTunes and Spotify on Thursday night.

“The Latina girls are gonna go crazy,” Bieber is heard telling Balvin, who calls the 22-year-old pop singer his “parcero,” which means “brother” in Colombian slang.

The duo teaming up comes to no surprise after the two met at the Special Olympics World Games Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles this summer and then shared a short video on Instagram of Balvin teaching Bieber the word "parcero."

Bieber and Balvin’s collaboration is the second between a mainstream American artist and a Colombian chart topper. Will Smith released a bilingual remix of Bomba Estereo’s “Festival,” a party anthem hit that has propelled Smith to the Latin Grammy Awards stage later this month.
