‘Despacito’ Becomes The Most Streamed Song Of All Time!


It’s official! Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s blockbuster hit ‘Despacito‘ has now become the most streamed song of all time! A massive record that has been set by the viral single and its accompanying remix courtesy Justin Bieber in just six months, the ‘Song of the Summer’ contender for 2017 has surpassed Bieber’s ‘Sorry‘ and remixes (4.38 billion). Having amassed 4.6 billion streams across all platforms, Lucian Grainge, chairman & CEO, Universal Music Group, also congratulated Luis Fonsi and everyone who helped make the record a hit saying:

“Luis Fonsi already had the undisputed, biggest song of the year – and now he’s setting even bigger records. Streaming has opened up the possibility of a song with a different beat, from a different culture and in a different language to become a juggernaut of success around the world. My congratulations to Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber, as well as everyone at Universal Music Latin Entertainment, Republic Records and Def Jam, on this tremendous accomplishment.”
