Grammys 2018 were a huge fail. ‘Despacito’ is Song of the Decade!

‘Despacito’ entered global popular culture. The entire world is singing in Spanish!
~ 2017’s most-streamed song
~ 2017’s most-purchased song
~ 16 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100, tying the all-time record
~ “One of the biggest global hits ever”
I never even heard the winning song.The Recording Academy ignored the Latin community and the entire world. Why RA President Mr. Neil Portnow?
