By now you would have to admit that “Despacito” is officially the song of the summer. And the Remix featuring Justin Bieber has made history as the most streamed song ever.
Another CONGRATULATIONS is in order for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee as the original version (sans the Biebs ) has set another record as the most-viewed YouTube video of ALL TIME — and the first video to ever reach 3 billion views.
On Friday afternoon, “Despacito” hit the 3,000,000,000 mark, easily surpassing the number of views held by previous record-holder, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again” (which has racked up 2,993,712,651 views) — which, in July, snatched the crown from PSY, whose “Gangnam Style” held the title of YouTube’s most-watched video for five years.
The video has already added an additional 15 million views since reaching it’s historical mark less than 24 hours ago.
