'Despacito' Becomes the Most-Viewed Video of All Time on YouTube
The music video has broken the record of the most-watched video in YouTube history with more than three billion views.


Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's latin hit "Despacito" has become the most-watched video on YouTube. The clip only took seven months to break the record of YouTube's most popular video ever, surpassing Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again". The video has been watched more than three billions as of now, and will likely to pass that milestone in a matter of minutes.

Daddy Yankee has taken to Billboard's official Instagram account to celebrate his success as the new king on YouTube. "Thank you YouTube for 'Despacito' success," he says. "I recognize the influence that the platform has. The music industry has changed. The rules of music have changed. And YouTube has a big responsibility, and I recognize it. Breaking the record is overwhelming, and I'm happy to keep inspiring others to do the same."

Thanks to the song's remix featuring Justin Bieber, "Despacito" has been rising steadily on music charts. It has been staying steady at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 for twelve weeks. In June, the song also became the most-streamed track of all time with more than 4.6 billion streams

Less than a month ago, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth surpassed K-Pop artist PSY'a breakout smash hit "Gangnam Style" with their "Furious 7" soundtrack cut. The tear-jerking ballad has now moved to the second position with a little less than 3 billion views.
