We Thought We Loved 'Despacito,' But This Acapella Cover Made Us Swoon A Little

This is so good.

We love hearing artists take on some of the world's biggest jams in an acapella style — and one quartet's "Despacito" cover is no exception.

In a video performance, group Aula39 sings the Luis Fonsi-featuring-Daddy Yankee hit in such a striking way that it's captured the attention of millions of people. On YouTube, the video has garnered more than 160,000 views; on The Humor LAD's Facebook page, it's collected more than 34 million. 

"This is the nicest cover of 'Despacito' I have ever heard by far," one YouTube viewer commented. "Loved how you guys used your [voices]."

Aula39 is made up of four members: Agostino Acquaviva, Manuel Botrugno, Giovanni Seidita, and Luca Tosoni. Their other acapella covers include Sean Paul's "No Lie," Charlie Puth's "Attention," and Katy Perry's "Chained to the Rhythm," to name a few.

With that, be sure to check out their "Despacito" cover below, and follow them on Facebook here.
