#MyDespacito Contest

#MyDespacito Contest 

Ah – Despacito, one of the most streamed played songs of all times making a record high of 4.6 billion plays across big platforms. How are we not tired of this song yet is beyond me. So we wanted to make a mash-up video of this song in many different languages!

What is this?

We wanted to create a multi-cultural music video feature the country YOU are.

How it works?

  1. Translate and sing the song in your language
  2. Upload a SOLO video performance on Sing
    1. Remember to sing with a well lit room 😉
    2. Sing at least until 1:25 (as we know it’s hard to translate an entire song)
  3. In the comments, write #MyDespacito and include the language you sang it in

When does it end?

The sooner, the better. Contest ends Wednesday, August 2nd!

We will take the videos and make a mash-up video – so partake in this awesome contest and show us what you got.

What do I win?

  • Fame across all our social platforms
  • Smule Swag 😉

How do I translate the song?

Best way to do this is to look up someone else who has already translated the song.

Example:

Chinese translation and Despacito in Chinese

 

Let’s recreate this video!

Sing “I Swear” with “All-4-One”

Sing “I Swear” with All-4-One

 

The American male R&B band, All-4-One, is all for Smule with their 1994 hit single, “I Swear.”  If you went to school dances in 1994 then you know that the night wasn’t over until “I Swear” was played as everyone’s favorite slow dance song.  The song went viral as they were America’s new favorite boy band after The New Kids On The Block tapered off.

Separately, the band is made up of talented artists: Jamie Jones, Delicious Kennedy, Alfred Nevarez, and Tony Borowiak, but together they are one.  The group has sold 22 million records worldwide and has been awarded a Grammy for their pop single, “I Swear,” and an AMA for their song “So Much in Love.”

All-4-One is still going strong to this day.  They never broke up and still interact with their fanbase.  It’s time to bring back one of America’s biggest pop acts and most loved boy band.  Join All-4-One for a duet in the Sing! By Smule app to harmonize to the words of “I Swear.”

 

Join All-4-One now on Sing!
