“Despacito” isn’t just the song of the summer, it is now also the most-streamed song…ever. The original track and the Justin Bieber–assisted remix have been streamed a combined 4.6 billion times since the original’s release in January.
That’s over 200 million more streams than Bieber’s own “Sorry,” the previous record-holder.
It’s the no. 1 song in the U.S., the U.K., and Australia.
It’s the first Spanish song since “Macarena” to hold a no. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and the music video racked up 5.4 million views in 24 hours, the most for any Spanish-language video ever — all well before Bieber got involved.
