Watch Katy Perry sing about "Feels"...in a field

A video for "Feels," the single featuring Calvin Harris, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, and Big Sean, has arrived -- and it's a hazy tropical fantasy. The clip shows Sean sitting in the jungle with a couple of parrots, a Hawaiian-shirt wearing Pharrell floating in a rowboat, and Katy, wearing a long, neon-yellow wig and yellow dress, lounging in a field of yellow flowers.  Calvin is also shown playing bass.  The video cuts between each performer, and we see them and the landscape through colored filters that bathe them all in surreal purples, reds, greens, and blues. "Feels" is from Calvin's…

It's lucky number seven for "Despacito," the smash song by Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber.  The song has just racked up its seventh week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.  But what is it about "Despacito" that's made it the first Spanish #1 hit since "The Macarena" 20 years ago?  Luis says, "That's probably the question I get asked the most, and I don't have a perfect answer."
