During his headlining set at Summerburst Festival in Stockholm on Saturday, the Biebs took some time to tell the crowd why he wouldn’t sing the chart-topping track, which is a remix collaboration with Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi.
"I can’t do 'Despacito' because I don’t even know it," he told the audience. "I don't know the song. I can't do it."
As Justin tried to explain that he didn’t know the lyrics to his own hit single, someone in the crowd threw an object at the singer’s head. Thankfully for Justin, his reflexes were on point. "Whoa, don’t throw things at me," he said after dodging the object.
