'Despacito' (Sans Justin Bieber) Breaks YouTube Record for Most Viewed Video

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s music video for “Despacito” is now the most watched video of all time on YouTube and it will likely become the first video to reach three million views!

The video, which is not the remix version featuring Justin Bieber, has 2,994,561,023 views at the time of publishing.

“Despacito” takes the record from Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa‘s Fast & Furious 6 song “See You Again,” which broke the record back in mid-July.

It’s impressive that “Despacito” has hit the record this quickly as the video was released in January 2017 while “See You Again” is already two years old.

'Despacito' Makes History & Is Named Most Streamed Song Ever!

“Despacito” just made history and became the most streamed song of all time!

The hit by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, which features Justin Bieber, hit over 4.6 billion plays across leading streaming platforms after its release about six months ago.

“This is just crazy! I’m super happy! Thank you so much for loving the song,” Luis said in a video on his Twitter.

He added, “Thank you to my brother Daddy Yankee. Thank you to Justin Bieber for jumping on this remix. Thank you to everyone involved, everyone supporting it.”

The record was previously held by Justin, whose song “Sorry” and its remixes had been streamed 4.38 billion times.

Justin Bieber Came Up With the 'Despacito (Remix)' Idea

Did you know that the hit song “Despacito (Remix)” was Justin Bieber‘s idea?

The 23-year-old singer was the one who contacted Luis Fonsi to put together the remake of the track, featuring Daddy Yankee.

It’s a good thing, too, because it was an instant success! In fact, it’s the first Spanish-language song to make it into the top 10 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 list in 20 years.

“The reality is that the song, thank God, is already a global hit,” Luis told Yahoo. “What Justin Bieber does now is take it to an Anglo-Saxon market. He was the one who initiated it. He was on tour in Colombia when he heard the song in a club. He saw how people reacted and told his manager he wanted to record the song.”

“[Justin] recorded it and decided to sing in Spanish on his own, and I think it’s incredible,” Luis added.
