Even more prohpetic are the lyrics to the song which seem to perfectly encapsulate many of the criticisms of Biden:
I want to breathe in your neck slowly
Let me murmur things in your ear
So that you remember if you’re not with me
Fox News had more about the backlash from his decision:

The event was meant to commemorate the Hispanic Heritage Month. The Democratic candidate was the last speaker to take the podium, following several supporters including Eva Longoria, Ricky Martin and Luis Fonsi.
However, when Biden approached the podium, he paused and reached for his phone in his pocket.
He then held his phone to the microphone, which began playing the 2017 hit song “Despacito” from Fonsi, who had introduced the candidate. After roughly 15 seconds of bobbing his head and gently dancing behind the podium, he paused the music.
“I’ll tell you what — if I had the talent of any one of these people, I’d be elected president by acclamation,” Biden chuckled.
Oh my. @JoeBiden whips out his cellphone and plays “Despacito.”
