Puerto Rican singer-songwriter and actor Luis Fonsi (age 42) picked the song “Sway” by songwriter Pipobeats as his Songland Selection.

Fonsi, along with Songland producers and judges Ester Dean, Ryan Tedder and Shane McAnally were impressed by “Sway” the first time they heard it and were dancing to its beat as composer Pipobeats performed onstage.

Luis Fonsi said the song was like “musical caffeine”. Ryan Tedder said the chorus is a smash, but he thinks there are conflicting melodies in the pre-chorus, specifically because the guitar and the voice are following different lines. Fonsi agreed and said he loves the verse melody, so he presented a simpler way of guitar accompaniment.

Shane felt that too many things happen before the chorus. Ester commented, “But I feel like we speak English and we’re listening to it in an English ear, so I wouldn’t try to critique the Spanish part to know if it lays on the beat correctly, or not.”

Fonsi said it sometimes get clunky during the switching from English to Spanish, “so it needs a little bit of rearranging and polishing.” He thinks it’s got a great verse melody and a beautiful chorus, though.
