Just a few weeks ago we asked which female pop star should record a "Despacito" remix with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. Among the candidates were Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Camila Cabello, Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez.

And the winner is ... Camila Cabello!

The singer won easily, receiving 47 percent of the votes. Second place was taken by the Colombian superstar Shakira, with 13 percent, and third place belongs to Jennifer Lopez with 12 percent. Check out the full chart below:

So far, the song has been recorded in many other genres, including pop, salsa, reggaeton and EDM. But what's curious is that no female artist has jumped in with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee to give the song a different sound. Hopefully, Fonsi & Yankee listen to our recommendation!

This week, “Despacito” with Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber leads the Hot 100 chart for an eighth frame, and is currently the frontrunner for Billboard’s Song of the Summer honors.
